Wondering if Phil's bringing his friends to your town? Look here for the latest info from the Phil Zone!
Terrapin Crossroads began hosting paid webcasts this weekend, with shows by Phil & Friends, featuring Warren Haynes, John Scofield, John Medeski and Joe Russo. Here's a link to video of most of Friday's show:
Resonant Wave Promotions and the Blacksheep Family invite you to FurtherMore –
TW0 after-parties following the McMenamin’s Edgefield Furthur shows.
FurtherMore will take place at the Refuge, Portland’s premier late-night venue, on
Friday September 28th and Saturday September 29th from 9:00pm until 5:00am. If
you missed getting tickets to the sold-out Furthur shows, FurtherMore at the Refuge
is the place to be during those shows. If you have tickets to Furthur (which will end
around 10:00pm) this will be the ideal place to gather with ALL your friends since
the headline music will not start until midnight and will go until 5:00am the following
The first night, Friday September 28th, is STRING NIGHT. It will feature GREAT
AMERICAN TAXI with Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon and the high energy
string Americana music of FRUITION STRING BAND. Local legend and guitar
virtuoso SCOTT LAW will perform both a solo set and sit-in with the others.
The second night, Saturday September 29th, is FUNK NIGHT. It will feature San
Francisco’s finest psychedelic soul funk band and New Orleans Jazzfest favorite
MONOPHONICS. Also performing will be POLYRYTHMICS, Seattle’s finest Afro-
funk world beat orchestra, and the BROWN EDITION Olympia's sophisticated funk.
The Refuge (116 SE Yamhill St. in Portland, OR) is a large warehouse/loft space
with indoor and outdoor areas, two full-bars, a custom stage and sound system, and a
hardwood dance floor. FurtherMore will be decked out with Blacksheep style lights
and other entertainment for your visual pleasure. There will also be food and craft
vending on site.
Safety first, DON’T DRIVE when you can be “on the bus!”
“On the Bus” ticket packages will be offered soon in very LIMITED NUMBERS
with bus transportation to the Edgefield (for those ticketed for the Furthur show) and
back to the Refuge for the FurtherMore after-party.
We are looking forward to seeing you there for two stellar nights of excellent high
energy music and esthetics with our friends and family until the morning comes!
Peace through music,
Resonant Wave Promotions and Blacksheep Family — with Black SheepFamily at Refuge Pdx.
Phil Lesh and Friends
April 26, 27, 28 and 29, 2012
We’re getting the band back together! For the first time in almost a decade, the longest-tenured Phil & Friends band, the Quintet (or simply the Q to many of you) will be playing together for four nights of music at Terrapin Crossroads! Phil, Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring, John Molo and Rob Barraco reunite for the first time since 2003 to bring you the sounds that largely defined Phil & Friends in the early 2000s.
Video of the free webcast from Terrapin Crossroads last Sunday, March 25th:
Good job on the reviews, JackStrawfromCO. All 3 shows are on archive.org now.
Which guitarist was crankin' out the lead during Cold Rain and Snow?
I'm not good at writing reviews but here goes. These 3 shows were spectacular. They exceeded my already high expectations of a P&F show. I can't recall the last time I experienced such an exploration in sound and jams. They teased and teased for 3 straight days. You never knew what direction they were going to take next. Almost every song had some insane jam before or during it. I felt like Warren was on a mission, even though there is no reason for him to, he was out to prove something I swear! Like I said earlier, Scofield took them to the far spaces of exploration, maybe not even realizing it, but he did it!! Phil fist bumped, high fived and hugged him all weekend, you could just tell he was loving the trip Scofield was taking them on. We all know what Russo and Chimenti bring, I was so happy that Jeff jumped on board for this run!! Jackie was great and is the ultimate utility player .. he was on guitar, the keys and my favorite were his banjo parts particularly Cumberland. Magic Bus was right up his alley.
Thursday had all the "hits" and when they opened up with Shakedown you knew this band meant business. Set the tone for the whole run. SOTM and Just a Little light to end the 1st set was so Jerry and so Brent all in 2 songs.
Friday was my favorite night, to me this was Warren's night. Loose Lucy>Ball and Chain>She Said to end the 1st set and the ripping Passenger 2nd set opener along with that unexpected Low Spark, Caution, another unexpected one in the Walrus and finally that gorgeous Dew were all Warren at his best!!! I could have swore they were going into Foxy Lady inside that group of songs as well! Man oh man what an incredible night that was!!
Hell Saturday was grateful too! The whole 1st set was just a rocking good time. But the song of the weekend (other than Dew of course) may very well could have been Layla. Wow!! God that awesome!!
Thanks so much for stopping by Colorado with your friends Phil. God bless you!
Anyone find my little woven tray of rocks at the Saturday Broomfield show?
-Last seen near the north entrance just about showtime...
I'd like to get back the terminated Pink Tourmaline and would gladly share some other stones as a reward..
Many Blessings to all and
for an Amazing show.
Anyone venture a review of the 3 Phil shows? Jackstraw from CO was in attendance
: who else? I did not go but wish I had. Missed out on some good skiing too.
I've downloaded the 2nd and 3rd nights, but haven't critiqued any yet.
