Festival 8 Is Upon Us
Boy, do I wish I was on my way to Indio, CA for Festival 8. Aside from the reunion shows at the Mothership this past March, this weekend is shaping up to be the biggest Phish weekend since the train wreck that was Coventry. This weekend will be a true celebration of the spirit of Phish.
I am really hoping that the band will play Electric Ladyland for their Halloween set.
For more detailed information check out the Festival 8 website.
Which album will Phish perform? As of this posting, there are only 9 albums alive.
1. David Bowie | Hunky Dory
2. Genesis | The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway
3. Jimi Hendrix | Electric Ladyland
4. King Crimson | Larks’ Tongues In Aspic
5. MGMT | Oracular Spectacular
6. Michael Jackson | Thriller
7. Prince | Purple Rain
8. Radiohead | Kid A
9. Rolling Stones | Exile on Main Street
For those of us who will not be at the festival and have Satellite Radio, you will be able to listen to the entire weekend on Sirius/XM Radio.
XM Radio - Channel 56 Jam On
Sirius Radio - Channel 17 Jam On

You can follow the festival on Twitter.
Phish will be offering each show this weekend in FLAC-HD!
If you don't want to pay for the recording, you can also check out bt.etree, where there will be plenty of recordings available after the festival, and maybe even during!
Looks like the weather in Indio will be very pleasant.
I didn't catch this on Conan last night, but this is pretty random.
