Those who know me know that I’m a huge Phish fan. I didn’t spend Marni’s birthday the first year we dated because of an end-of-summer Phish show (Marni did say it was okay).
Needless to say that I was a little upset that I couldn’t attend their comeback shows in Hampton, VA in a few days. With a 2 1/2 year old, a pregnant wife (who’s recently been sick), a hectic job, and a few thousand miles of distance, it just wasn’t feasible for me to get out there. Yes, I’ve become an adult.
Well, I just learned that Phish will be offering downloads of their shows 24 hours after the show. And, get this, they’re TOTALLY FREE!
“Says Trey Anastasio, “We really wanted to show our gratitude to all the Phish fans for their support and the overwhelming response they’ve had to these shows. It’s going to be an amazing celebration and we only wish everybody could be there,” Phish will be recording the Hampton shows in a mobile multitrack studio, and mixing the shows overnight for immediate delivery on LivePhish.com. 256kbps MP3s will be available for free download for a limited time. FLACs and CDs are also available.”
This makes me happy.
