PHIX to play TWO shows in Denver this weekend
Ever since Phish announced their reunion, our heads have been FILLED with Phishy thoughts. We've been digging back through our collections and listening to all of the old shows with a renewed love for the music. And though rumors abound regarding some Phish shows in Colorado this summer, nothing has been announced yet. And we are well aware that, as lucky as a couple of us are to be going to Hampton next month, MOST folks here in Colorado didn't get so lucky and will have to miss out. So we thought, what the hell, let's play a couple of PHIX shows here in Denver...it'll be a little warm-up for the reunion shows and the summer tour, a little Phix for those who can't be there for whatever reason. And it'll most definitely be a blast, and a great chance to get together with all of our friends who we don't see so often these days...
We should also add that we have opening acts on both nights, both of which feature Phix bass beeyotch Brian Adams, the hardest-working bassist in Colorado. On Friday 2/13, the band is Ethereal Plane, featuring Patrick Latella on guitar and some outstanding funky, fusiony jams. On Sat. 2/14, the opener is Magnolia Row, a wonderful bluegrass band featuring excellent musicianship and beautiful vocal harmonies. We think you'll really enjoy both bands, and we hope you'll get there early both nights to hear them play. Music will get going by 9:30, if not earlier, and Phix will take the stage by 10:45 or so both evenings.
We look forward to seeing our Colorado friends and family at these shows, and we thank everyone for all the support you have given us over the years. It'll probably be a while before you get another e-mail from us, since these are the only Phix shows we have on the calendar. We don't know what the future holds for Phix, but we have been very thankful for the opportunities we have had to get back together over the last year or so, and it may still happen again in the future...but meanwhile, we're all looking forward to getting out to see the real deal this spring and summer, and we hope to bump into some of you at the shows.
