  3. How many Phish tribute acts are there in Canada?
  4. I think I liked all of them. Fuego, Monica, Wombat will be new crowd favourites for sure. The setlists over the last two years haven't changed very much at all, new material is needed badly.
  5. Interesting. I've been making this comparison for a few years. One of the biggest, to me, is where each band got started. San Francisco was the heart of the psychedelic movement and the hippie counter culture, Seattle was the heart of grunge and the musical shift of the 90s. Yes Pearl Jam has (had) more hits, but they're essentially a road band now. The albums (since Yield, arguably) don't mean much but some new life in the setlists. I'd say the fanbase is pretty close to as dedicated, but without the touring lifestyle associate with the Dead. PJ is as close as it gets, I think, in terms of being on a similar level of mass cultural importance (Phish is still too off-the-radar for that)
  6. Were you the only taper there? I saw your mics ... didn't see any others. Big difference from 13 years ago when I was directly behind the taper's section and was a bit annoyed at my sightlines being blocked
  7. Is this implying that I don't like the band enough because I was hoping they'd acknowledge that 10,000ish people were inconvenienced the night before?
  8. One of the few things about Phish that's always bugged me is the lack of 'banter' on stage. So many shows go by without a "thank you", "nice to see you", "have a great night", etc. Unless it's gone unmentioned, nothing was said about Toronto at last night's show. I think they owe us a quick "sorry about last night" from the stage. Most of the people affected by the cancellation were either at last night's show or will be listening to it. All that we've had from the band is one very formal announcement, and I think it's fucking rude. It really looks like the don't give a shit.
  9. Big Black Furry Creatures From Mars.
  10. I've been a fan since 96 and was really annoyed that they went almost 2 years without a new original.
