Ain’t Nuthin’ New

While Phish has been pumping out the tricks, mysteries, and secrets like it’s their job as of late, they aren’t the first to adopt this cosmic humor.
Back up 20 years, the Grateful Dead make a historic return to none other than Hampton Coliseum – The Mothership (and yes, hippies were calling it that long before Phish debuted there) – by booking a secret 2 night run under the name “Formerly The Warlocks”. The Dead had been banned from the historic arena years earlier due to the unruly parking lot/line scene. The circumstances surrounding these shows is historic in and of itself and the band really brought it both nights with top-notch playing and many long-shelved songs being reborn. This is a piece of Dead lore’ not to be missed…
