Reviews: Trey and Classic TAB @ the Jefferson [The Butter Room]

Overall, it was clear the band had put in a lot of practice for the opener. It was also evident that they were having a good time. I’m not sure I would have enjoyed the show as much if it wasn’t for the small venue. The last time I saw TAB was in a basketball arena with the horns and it just didn’t have the same vibe. I hope he can continue to play small clubs and theaters so all fans can experience the band up close. If you have a chance to see TAB on this tour, I encourage you to check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

Movies: Phish Festival in 3D: Coming Soon [Jamtopia]

Earlier today a page appeared on Ticketmaster that seems to finally confirm some great news: a theatrical release of a new Phish concert film.

Assuming the word on the street is correct, this will be none other than Phish Festival 8 in 3D, which has been rumored since the run-up to Festival 8 and now has a rumored release date of some time in May of this year.

Songs: Trey’s Newest Songs [Phish Thoughts]

“Show of Life“

The second song that Trey and The Dude wrote over sushi blossomed in the encore as a gorgeous piece that virtually oozes the soul of Phish. With stunning melodies, vocal harmonies, and an overall transcendent feel, “Show of Life” will be an amazing addition to the Phish catalog, and I’d be shocked if it wound up anywhere else. In this version, Trey’s dripping solo blends with a warm canvas of horns, providing a cathartic preview of what could be a summertime anthem. With the embellishment of Phish, this song could become modern classic.
