Fresh Phish: West Coast dates/ Summer Tour 2009



This video has only received 12 hits on Youtube so far.  It finally and officially confirms the West Coast dates that everyone has been waiting on for PHISH‘s latest reunion tour.  Obviously, this announcement isn’t delivered in a manner that was quite as exciting as the last one which featured sky writing jets or the Hampton painting, but some of the news definitely is news worthy.

Being in the North West, I was pleased to hear about 2 dates at the Gorge, but I am really surprised by only one scheduled Shoreline appearance and no other California dates.  The big announcement is the 4 show run at Red Rocks in Colorodo, since the group was banned from the venue after the riots which ensued in 1996.  No Vegas dates though…… but, I can’t truly say I’m all that confused as to why.  Many have speculated that the mayhem that has gone done at the Nevada shows in more recent years, attributed to the break up of the group in the first place.

Dead C

Located in Seattle, Dead C is the founder/editor, as well as the principal writer and photographer, of Monster Fresh. Creating the site in 2007, he did so with a specific dream in mind. Unfortunately, being a muscle relaxer-fueled fever dream, it's hard to recall all of the details. "I remember that my mom was there, but it wasn't actually her in the dream, it was actually 70s heart throb, Jan Michael Vincent. And everything took place here, in this room... but it wasn't actually here... it was different. The colors were washed out and, for some reason, there was a raccoon kicking it with us and it was wearing a holographic monocle."
