Although they're not really on my radar, it's actually become difficult to escape any mention of Phish's three-day takeover of Berkeley's Greek Theatre this weekend. And because the shows sold out months ago in approximately five minutes, many "phans" too spaced out to click a few buttons (and others who tried and failed because of an overwhelmed Ticketmaster server) missed another chance to see Phish---otherwise known as the second coming of the Grateful Dead.
It’s fairly quiet in the land of music, but after last week’s shenanigans we’ll be glad to sit back, relax and enjoy the special performances rolling through this week. We’re especially excited for the highly anticipated and much-hyped traveling hip-hop festival, Rock The Bells this Sunday. Check out our other picks.
Phish, Shoreline, 8/5: For those who are super into 30-minute guitar solos and just straight improv jam sessions, then Phish is definitely for you. On tour for the first time in five years, these guys have one of the most impressive followings we’ve seen since the Grateful Dead. If you go it’ll definitely be an experience, and make sure to say hi to the Furthur bus for us.
