Welcome To Now

Some fun things to get started with….

First, fluffy fluffy fluffy fluffy fluffy head from Hampton 3/6/09. When the lights go yellow, Phish plays their first improvised note in almost 5 years. Feel the release….

Second, The Talking Heads in 1980 – The Great Divide

And finally, some classic G Dead/Bob Weir from NYE 1985 (with Ken Kesey commentary). The vocal interplay between Bob and Brent is top-notch, and Bobby’s hand signals and intense stare put this over the top!

More to come!
