    Dick’s Adds to its Special Reputation

    “The Dick’s Simple”. I thought I was offering a uniquely enlightened thought to my friend next to me as the song’s groove kept getting deeper and thicker. When I turned to Twitter to update the world with my thoughtful nugget, I noticed like 50 other people had tweeted “Dick’s Simple”. I just put my phone away.

    Based on a survey of over 2000 fans who requested mail order tickets to Fall Tour, we take a look at what we can learn about which elements of Phish’s allocation of tickets are random — and which aren’t.

    Fall 2014 Lottery Results Survey Analysis – Part 1

    As soon as Fall Tour lottery results started rolling out Tuesday afternoon, I published a survey. Over the following day and a half, I collected exactly 2014 responses from those who’d entered the lottery — about what they ordered, what they received, where they’re located, and more.

    Wrapping Up in Alpharetta

    Lots of excitement surrounded Phish’s show last night in Georgia. It was their last show of the tour, it was on the heels of two shows that didn’t live up to the standard they’d created for themselves this year, it was a Sunday, the venue is a great one to see a show in, and the webcast was free for everyone.

  • "Nobody rocks like...SPRINGFIELD!!"

    The Oak Mountain Festival Show

    When you go to any rock concert and the lead vocalist comes to the microphone and says “wow, we love playing in [insert your city here]!!!” everyone cheers but no one really thinks their city is anything special despite this nice gesture. I’m starting to get that sense from Phish.

    Phisherman’s Wharf

    I’d like to immediately apologize for the title of this review–I just had to do it. The band seemed to be happy to be in southern Alabama and so were the southern phans that rarely get to see the band come closer than Alpharetta in the recent era.

    Fresh Phish at nTelos

    Phish has hit quite the stride in 2014. Amazingly, and unlike nearly any other band with a vintage of over 30 years, they continue to be fresh sounding. The band is playing as well as ever before in their careers, mixing songs of all their eras together seamlessly, and all playing with a keen ear for one-another.

    7/27/14 Review: The Town Threw Down On Me

    Tonight, Phish played a song that everyone in the room including them agrees is horrible, and the drummer skipped half the lyrics and then made fart noises into a vacuum cleaner before circling the stage like a disoriented puppy while his bandmates played a horrible song from the 70s. And silly as it was, this spectacle was the greatest proof you’ll ever find that Phish is the greatest band in the world.

    Northerly 3: Saving the Best For Last

    Never miss a Sunday show. It’s the mantra that we’ve heard repeated in our community for years. Is there any truth to it? We have yet to actually do some research on the topic (waiting for @guyforgetOPT to write that article). Last night, however, it was indeed true.

    Northerly 2: They Keep it Rollin’

    There seems to be 2 patterns forming this tour that’s hard to ignore and each relates to different sets. First sets have been used almost exclusively for playing straight-forward Phish staples. The second pattern is that there’s a heck of a lot of “>”s or “->”s between songs in the second sets.

    Four Years Later – 3/6/09

    After 30 years of touring, a hiatus, a break-up, 11 studio albums (12 if you include the White Tape), several New Year’s Eve (NYE) runs, 9 festivals, and 6 Halloween album costumes, Phish is thriving.  Four years after the band’s exalted return to the stage, the Phish community is thriving and possibly hungrier than ever.

    NYE Phish Ticket Problems

    I get that New Year’s Eve in New York City is prime time to make money, but I think it comes at the misfortune of fans. Many fans will not stop going to shows and will likely buy ridiculously marked up tickets, but many fans will not.

    When Life Gets in the Way of Tour

    As tour winds and leg two comes to a close capping a stellar summer of Phish, I can’t help myself from thinking about all the shows I missed. Who knew moving to a new city and going through a major life transition would make catching shows so difficult.

    Summer 2012: Leg One OPT Wrap-Up

    We’re now at about the halfway point between the two legs of summer tour. We at OPT wanted to give enough time for the dust to settle after the first leg so we didn’t offer opinions that may be emotional rather than logical.

    Phish Funk in 2012

    The funk is resembling the ’97 funk in some places. Don’t shake your head–it does. Take the most glaring example: Atlantic City’s Tube.
