    Re: Official Phish Discussion

    I saw some winter tour rumors yesterday. Short run starting in SE (West Palm then Charleston), couple Texas shows, couple vegas shows then ending in Cali. Im not buying it but would love for it to be true as Id probably hit up 6 shows plus potentially NYE. Already booked my Charleston hotel just in case. Learned my lesson after not jumping on Mohegan Sun.

    It's hard for me to believe that they'd have a concert at the Wharf in late November. Seems like a show on the beach that late in the year would be miserable for band and attendees.

    Omg please come to West Palm and/or Charleston..........

    I think the last time they did that was in 2009. Two nights in Philly before Thanksgiving.

    I thought it was all but confirmed they were in Vegas for NYE...or was that just strong wishful thinking that became a rumor.

    Lmao. I book a flight to Milwaukee thinking there's no way they'd be back to Dallas for a while (2016 shows were half empty). A week later, Texas show rumors are back . Fuck it. I'm still goin to Alpine.

    And I hope that they dont switch to that generic T-mobile Arena in Vegas. That mini-MSG at MGM Grand is so much better for concerts.

    Ive never been to either but am surprised to hear that sentiment. They are relatively the same size so figured the newer one would be better. Have you been to both?

    Re: Official Phish Discussion

    Stefan does not care what Phish does: https://twitter.com/SLessard/status/1107818411277443072

    copy/past for those that don't want to click on twitter.

    A conversation was happening that DMB doesn't play enough "rarities" or more different songs in general and I guess Stefan was tagged. He quote-tweeted this:

    "Grateful Dead, Phish, Widespread Panic had/have hundreds of songs in their rotation. Phish and Panic typically go 3-5 shows without repeats. Not advocating one over the other but rock n roll bands have been around for decades doing this. DMB rocks too."

    and said this:

    "Non of those bands have any real radio hits or hit records. Great bands but we our in our own catagory. We have popular hits, albums, and we jam. We are also high octane for the whole show. Carter having the most octane!"

    followed by:

    "I really just don’t care at all what Phish does, like at all, zero fucks given."

    but he followed up with this: https://twitter.com/SLessard/status/1107834680009740288

    "I actually like Phish I just don’t base our shows off theirs in any shape or form. They do them, we do us."

    Re: Official Phish Discussion

    I mean, he's not all that far off base, in some aspects anyways.

    DMB is good at what they do. Phish is good at what they do. DMB trying to be Phish-esque wouldn't work well and vice versa.

    I love Phish for what they do but can understand why it may turn some people off.

    I do wish that DMB would branch out into their catalog more, but they never really have. They've always stuck to a similar batch of songs over a given tour, even dating back to their early days. It worked for them, obviously, and while it may frustrate those of us who have moved on from the band or whatever, it's what works for them. Many of us see it as lazy setlist writing, because we know what Phish can do, but compare it to a band who plays the same set every night, and it's all relative.

    *shrugs*

    yeah the spirit of what hes saying is fine. Choosing to actually reply to all the trolls, especially ones comparing bands, is quite a head scratcher for stefan to be wasting his time on.

    I dont really care what anyone from DMB thinks about Phish (or vice versa), but those comments do come off as a little butt hurt about the whole thing. And if he really gave no fucks he wouldnt have responded that way.

    This has nothing to do with his above comments, but calling a spade a spade Stefan has always been a boring bassist and present day DMB sucks.

    I do find the high octane comment hilarious though.

    Still not really sure why people compare these two bands at all, especially in 2019. I get they're both stereotypically bro bands but that's basically where the comparisons stop

    its akin to phish being compared to the grateful dead. they really shouldnt be compared, yet they are (or were).

    Stefan certainly feeds everyone he wishes would leave him alone. DMB v Phish has become quite exhausting.

    I also wouldn't fully trust those dates floating around. Semo is a putz.

    Re: Official Phish Discussion

    Phish is at least an arguable evolution of GD, IMO. I definitely agree with you though that sonically speaking they are not remotely as close as people sometimes seem to think.

    In terms of those sorts of HORDE contemporaries, DMB is way closer to like Blues Traveler or even Hootie
