Saw this on the net today, and it certainly is interesting. I've been away from the tronz all weekend, so take this with a grain of salt.

Now, look at the image of this Genesis Poster from a September 18-20 run of shows in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Wachovia Center.

What does this mean?

There's been a lot of talk on a few sites I frequent that it'll be Genesis - 'The lamb lies down on broadway', even before this pic surfaced.

Then again, perhaps Phish decided this was a good way to throw everyone off.

While I believe Genesis is a likely choice, especially considering Phish already did the Genesis thing this year. However sometimes the original reference is stronger than assumed implications. Both pieces are based off of this:

Sure makes the Dog Faced Boy lyrics on the poster make more sense too.

So instead you are saying that Nate Duvall ripped off another artist? And it just happened to be a Genesis concert poster, a band that Phish inducted into the RRHOF this year?

It might not be a coincidence. It could be that Nate is a fan of either Genesis or the poster artist that created the Genesis poster and it's his own little homage. Could also be that Phish told him to somehow reference one of a list of bands to throw things off as Esau suggested.

Could also be that I have some practicing to do. Those notes won't play themselves!

That Genesis poster has no real presence in the Genesis artwork/imagery. There are so many other pictures and images associated with Genesis and that just isn't one of them (other than it being on one poster for one venue).

I have been wishing that Phish would cover Genesis forever. The Lamb doesn't have to be the only possibility for them to use as a costume either.

Really, The Phish could possibly be wearing any of these Genesis albums as a costume and it would be crazy good.

If you're interested in hearing what "classic era" Genesis is all about (Gabriel, Collins, Banks, Rutherford, Hackett), I highly suggest these albums to dig your teeth into. The Lamb is not one of the most accessible and takes some time to "get" ;) To each their own however. I've been listening to these albums for almost 25 years and I still find new and amazing things in them.
