Hometown shows, cookie dough, and Atlanta in August.
In today's episode, NYC resident Brad Mislow talks us through Phish's performance of "2001" from the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater at Encore Park, or simply, Alpharetta. This version closed a 3-night run and is, to date, the only version of the song to close a show.
Although he has lived in New York for the past 21 years, Brad is originally from the Atlanta area and these were his first shows in the area since 1997. A classic version of one of Phish's best covers, Brad chose this version because it exemplifies why he will see them again and again. It starts out as your standard 2001 build but in the middle Trey starts adding “You Sexy Thing” quotes and the band follows. He then adds “Tweezer Reprise” quotes, and all of a sudden, they're playing three songs at the same time. Mind blowing.
