    I knew I should have searched the thread. I won't blame the beers or herb though, just my laziness.

    Stones in Toronto June 29????

    I have a friend who lives in that area, we used to go to the auto flea market that is held on the grounds. He charged people to park on his property during the boots and hearts fest, and told them all the money was going to a fund residents had set up to block the site from expanding. He warned that parking anywhere not permitted (signed as festival parking) could get you towed and towing cost are not cheap, especially during the festival, and that not all the towing companys hired those weekends/events are local, so your car could end up a lot further (like a different town) than the designated parking. The city by-law folks are also cracking down on residents who rent out parking on their property (it's against residential by-laws), so even though you paid some one you could still get towed (though not confirmed). The festival submits transit plans ( approved routes, parking etc) to the city. The routes approved are strictly enforced. There was only one way in and out (as you mentioned). If you are attending and take a route not set out to avoid the traffic and are stopped by OPP or festival workers you'll get turned back to 11 highway. Which can make a slow go even more frustrating since there is usually a slow crawl on those routes as well, making you're journey even longer.. His advice was just stick to the routes/parking set out by city & festival organizers, otherwise you'll be in for a longer and bigger headache. My buddy says its bad enough during the festvals that he parks his car at friends place a couple kms away and travels by bicycle to get to it. But since its not a full weekend deal it may not be as bad as the above sounds.

    I was probably less than 40ft from stage (Brent side) during this. After they left the stage, the crowd chanted and clapped "Love is real, not fade away" while leaving Rich Stadium. You could hear it clear as day all the way to the bus. Such an awesome night.

    Agreed. Thanks for posting this, I somehow missed that they were back, let alone had some new music. Found this too, considering I'm so out of touch, I assume this is new as well - the video was posted on yt same day.

    Phish Summer Tour '19

    I think the only difference will be not having to worry about rollers creepin' up on ya while smoking some herb in the lot. They'll probably focus more of enforcing smoking by-laws inside the show to make up for it though.

    Picking a song from Postmodern Jukebox is kinda low hanging fruit I suppose (b/c their covers almost always epic imo), but here we go...

  17. Hoping so. I mean it's Scorsese, so my expectations are a bit higher I suppose. I suspect we'll be seeing some updated/upgraded footage from 'Renaldo & Clara' considering the year(s)/tour. Just hope it's not a clip fest or partial remake of it. Regardless, looking forward to see what it is.
