Phish Throwdownfest | 10-26-2010 Manchester, NH

by phishtube on October 27, 2010

It’s one of those things. You can’t see them all, supposedly, so you have to pick and choose. Unfortunately, some of the ones you pick not to choose turn out to be scorchers. When I apply Phish logic to this one, it’s a no brainer. Everyone knows that SHOW NOT SOLD OUT + MIDWEEK + LESS DENSELY POPULATED AREA = SICK PHISH THROWDOWNFEST. Essentially I knew this was going to happen, I just didn’t know how painful it would be. My buddy said he would trade the past five shows to be at this one, but I’m not so sure. We must factor in all the adventures, reconnections, and interactions with friends and strangers. To me that’s priceless.

There were a ton of big moments, including “After Midnight” (which was only the second time it was played ever) and the tribute to the recently deceased reggae legend, Gregory Isaacs, covering the song “Night Nurse”. Something I really appreciate about Phish is their musical diversity. They expose us to so much great music that we might have never even knew existed. It’s like they open a door and leave it there to explore if we want to. Check out this interview with Isaacs HERE. Everyone I talked to was freaking on that scene. It was a reggae infused night for sure because they also played the Marley tune, “Mellow Mood”, and their original “Makisupa Policeman”. If you want to get a really insightful review of the show, I suggest Mr Miner’s Blog. I like the way he writes.

Here is some video from the show last night, starting with “Night Nurse” into the end of “Makisupa Policeman” and “The Wedge”.

Before I go I would like to take a minute to thank all the streamers and dreamers out there. A special nod to zzzstream and alphapig last night for their efforts, as well as a major salute to taper420 who stood by his policy of not streaming shows that are not sold out. There was a lot of controversy surrounding this, as well as the password protecting of the stream, so I would just like to clear a few things up. First of all, the streams have always been about broadcastin’ to the masses and sharing the groove. That’s how this whole thing started. The reason for all the rules and secrecy is to keep the streams alive and be a part of the greater Phish experience, not some rebel splinter group. We would never want anything we do to have a diliterious effect on the scene. Aren’t we all in this together?

Hi there! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
Does running a well-established website such as yours take
a lot of work? I’m completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and views online.
Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
Appreciate it! September 24, 2014 at 12:27 am

For many the allure of France is not the weather or the cost
of living, or even the spectacular view. Inside virtually any environment, nonetheless, French panels
manage to develop a gently American sparkle in addition to a little bit wistful ambiance to be able to
any kind of decoration. Think about a song that you find particularly
catchy, the catchiest part will have a simple and easy to repeat set of sounds, and this is what makes them so catchy.

Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to create a top notch
article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.

Are online games innately addictive, or is their connection to the web the supply
the dependancy, assuming there’s an dependancy at all?
