  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.
  12. I'm not from Toronto, but I love love love love love this place - http://wvrst.com/ Google Maps says it's a half hour walk.
  13. The whole thing is a bit hokey to me ... he was a band member for 5 years, now all they do is bring him out for one song? I know he needs the money but if I were him, I'd be insulted. Also, if I were him, I'd be fucking amazing.
  14. Maybe he's just tired of letting Phil think that it's actually a good song?
  15. Let the scalpers lose money. Buy from Phish! (and Ticketmaster )
  16. I completely agree with AD. It'll be tough because Phish is so insular in terms of their influence on other bands and culture in general, apart from the immediate fanbase obviously. If one was campaigning for this, you could argue that the continuation and modernization of the Dead's business model is pretty important, but that's boring to most people.
  17. It occured to me today after reading about the induction ceremony that Phish is now qualified! It's been 25 years since Junta. What do you think the chances are?
  18. I saw an Avril Lavigne video from a few years ago that was sponsored by FACTOR. The next video was Gord Downie (FACTOR) and the one after that was a genuine indie band, also FACTOR. I can't imagine why Avril, out of the three, would need grant money. She was at the height of her career then, and making real American money.
