Phish Played Over 200 Songs On Their 20-Show Summer Tour

first_imgLast night, Phish wrapped up a fun summer tour that saw the band play a total of 20 shows in 13 cities. While the band still has more performances on the docket, including two nights at LOCKN’ Festival and three nights at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park over Labor Day weekend, the bulk of the band’s scheduled travels are now complete. Naturally, while we wait for rumored fall tours and new albums to be announced, we wanted to reflect on the tour as a whole.In total, the band performed 205 songs over 20 shows, including a full eighty-four songs that were only played once all summer. In contrast, last year Phish played only 171 songs from the start of their summer tour through Magnaball, which was a total of 22 shows. In 2014, their 25-show tour brought 156 songs. Sufficed to say, Phish dug deep into their catalog and brought out a lot of classics, including jams like “The Sloth,” “The Lizards,” “Tela,” “McGrupp and the Watchful Hosemasters.” They also brought out tunes like “Let Me Lie,” “Round Room,” and “Demand,” as well as the full Fuego album (including bust outs of “Sing Monica” and “Wombat”) for the tour.The band also found some new covers for their 2016 rotation, including the biggest bust out, “Dear Prudence,” as well as “Cry Baby Cry” from The White Album. They also played another Beatles song, “I Am The Walrus.” “I Found A Reason” from Velvet Underground’s Loaded album made its first appearance since 1998, but the biggest surprise for covers was the debut of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.” The a cappella arrangement that has been performed throughout this summer has been a perfectly Phish-y tribute to the late great Thin White Duke.As far as debuts go, the band brought out a total of eight new original compositions. Here they are, in order of their debut: “Miss You,” “Breath and Burning,” “Things People Do,” “Waking Up Dead,” “Friends,” “Tide Turns,” “Let’s Go” and “Ass Handed.” The jury is still out as to whether “Ass Handed Reprise” from last night’s closer counts as its own song. Regardless, with Trey Anastasio recently telling fans that their album was finished, it should only be a matter of time before we have new information about this upcoming release. Lest we not forget that a whole host of new Phish songs, including “Blaze On,” “No Men In No Man’s Land,” “Shade,” “Mercury,” “How Many People Are You,” “Can’t Always Listen,” “Steam” and more, have yet to find homes in the studio. And there’s still a “15-minute piece with classical percussion” that we have yet to hear, if we’re to believe Hamilton percussionist Andrés Forero. Read more about that here.Interestingly, a few songs were left off the table in 2016, including fan-favorites like “Foam,” “Dirt,” “Esther,” “Colonel Forbin’s Ascent > Fly Famous Mockingbird,” and more. While “Fluffhead” did make its triumphant return this year, the absence of “Roses Are Free” suggests that something may be in store for LOCKN’, with Ween and Phish both performing. Fingers crossed.Of course, with over 200 songs played, the one notable absence from the tour was the long jam. The band’s setlists seemed more focused on going from song to song, as opposed to stretching any particular number out. The band relied heavily on instrument swapping this summer though, bringing out the Marimba Lumina on a near-nightly basis. Having witnessed the “Drive-In Jam” at Magnaball and the New Years’ “No Men In No Man’s Land” at MSG, it’s safe to say that the band isn’t quite tapped out from their exploratory jamming, but its absence from the summer run was surprising. With a handful of exceptions, like the SPAC “Moma” and “Chalk Dust,” the Hartford “Disease” or the BGCA “Sally,” there weren’t any individual jam moments that truly stood out along this tour.That all being said, some of these sets really gel collectively, especially the first set of the final Bill Graham show or the tease-filled second set at The Gorge opener. When we consider how many years Phish was absent from our lives in the earlier part of the 2000’s, the fact that they’re still trying new things – sharing new music, busting out old songs, etc. – is a testament to the band’s incredible legacy. Long live Phish.All stats here appear courtesy of IHOZ/Zzyzx.

Softball: Chloe Miller adds draft pick to season resume

first_imgJust to add to the excitement of a University of Wisconsin softball team fighting for a postseason spot in the NCAA tournament, a Badger player recently received some thrilling news. Senior catcher, Chloe Miller, was selected in the 2017 National Pro Fast Pitch Draft. In the 11th pick, the Akron Racers took the Iowa native.This news of being the second player in Wisconsin softball history to be drafted into the NPF shocked Miller, who said she did not want to enter the draft and did not even declare.“I was actually really surprised,” Miller said. “On the draft day I was just sitting in a coffee shop doing my homework and all of a sudden my phone started blowing up. I didn’t really believe it so I went back and turned the TV on to find out I had been drafted.”Women’s soccer: Strong final campaign wraps up historic career for LavelleSenior midfielder Rose Lavelle capped off what was already a historic career for the University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team Read…The fact that Miller was drafted at all should be no surprise to anyone. In four years at Wisconsin, Miller has played in more than 200 games and has a career batting average of .358. She has tallied 29 home runs and 176 RBIs with an on base percentage of .476 and a .628 slugging percentage.This season, Miller has put up her best numbers of her career. Her batting average of .442 is 84 points higher than her second best average. That number also ranks second among Big Ten hitters. Miller’s on base percentage for the year is a career high .549 and her slugging percentage this year is .798, another career high.Despite her career numbers and success throughout all four seasons, Miller did not consider the option of being drafted to play professional softball.“It wasn’t something I was necessarily looking for,” Miller said. “Even when the coaches asked me what I thought about it, I didn’t really know. But it suddenly became a reality real quick.”Top five sports moments this semesterThe University of Wisconsin Athletic Department had a lot to celebrate this semester, even if none of those involved a Read…Miller also leads the team in batting average, doubles, triples, home runs, RBIs, slugging and on base percentage. Only Kelsey Jenkins has Miller beat in runs scored, by one, and walks, by nine.Head coach, Yvette Healy, while feeling proud and enthusiastic for her senior catcher, also noted the uncommonness of a player being drafted who did not declare and attributes that to Miller’s skill.“[I was] really excited,” Healy said. “Typically you have to let the professional league know that you’re interested. It’s pretty rare. For her name to still come up just shows the type of caliber player she is.”The National Pro Fast Pitch League was created in 2004 and has five teams. In 13 years with the NPF, The Akron Racers have qualified for the semifinals in all but one year with a current eight years streak. The Racers last won the NPF championship in 2005.Softball: Jenkins’ eagle eye aides Badger offenseHome runs, balls that split the gap and bang off the wall are one of the most exciting aspects of Read…After receiving the shocking news, Miller felt overwhelmed and looked to an important person in her life, her father, Ardie, for advice.“We talked about the whole situation and what that means,” Miller said. “He’s really good at dealing with ‘what’s the next step’ so he kind of brought me back down to earth.”Due to eligibility reasons and NCAA rules, Miller and Akron are not allowed to converse until this season has come to an end.Currently, the Badgers own a record of 29-13 and a Big Ten conference record of 8-11 and sit at seventh place in the Big Ten standings through the series against Illinois. Miller and the Badgers are attempting to qualify for the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2014, Miller’s freshman season. The focus now is only on making the postseason.“She’s so focused on this season and trying to get the team to the NCAA tournament and finishing out her academic career,” Healy said.Softball: Chloe Miller is making her senior year one to rememberEveryone knew going into the year that senior utility player Chloe Miller was going to put up big numbers in her Read…Even though her collegiate softball career will be coming to an end after the conclusion of this season, Miller still has another year of school to finish her degree. She plans to use the time between now and the end of the season to reach a decision.“I actually have no idea [what I plan to do],” Miller said. “They can’t talk to me until my season is done and then I’ll have to give them a decision. So I still have hopefully three to four weeks to try and figure it out.”Wisconsin will compete in the Big Ten Tournament located in Ann Arbor, Michigan starting May 11. A tournament championship would earn them an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament, but a loss would force the Badgers to hope for an at large bid.last_img read more
