Better late than never. Finally got my videos up from Furthur’s Fall tour. This one is Dear Mr Fantasy from Syracuse NY on 11/11/11, and I’l also include the link for Bird Song from Buffalo NY 11/13/11 as well. I also have a video of The Other One from Albany 11/15 but havn’t gotten around to uploading it, there is already a few videos of the song on Youtube from that show…The Dear Mr Fantasy is incomplete, but worth watching for the nice sound and up-close picture. The Bird Song is complete and filled with Phil dropping bombs everywhere…Enjoy!

On a cruise with like-minded people as well as some great bands such as Umphrey’s Mcgee, 7 Walkers (Feat. Bill Kruetzmann), Soulive, Galactic, Keller and the Keels, and many more, sounds like paradise, quite literally.
One day in the next few years when I have a legit job and I would like to embark on this adventure. In the meantime, I will fantasize about what it must be like….
So I been obsessing over the Smashing Pumpkins lately. And I found this video (well, still shot w/ sound) of Phish covering the Pumpkins’ “Rhinoceros” from 98. Epic. Great song, and really cool to hear it jammed out a bit….
On a side note, just got my wisdom teeth taken out this morning, and yeah, its sucks…
“Phil somehow always looked cooler to me. The sweatbands on his wrist alone put him in a whole different league. Despite his superior dressing style, though, Phil never quite looked the part of the rock musician. He had to me the appearance of an accountant who had serendipitously stumbled upon a freezer full of acid and a bass guitar. And never looked back.”
On the final night of their 3 night NYE run, Furthur held nothing back and went full steam ahead into 2012. Next up is a brief Colorado run for Phil and Friends in February, before a 3 city, 13 show Furthur Northeast tour in April…
