Hampton Countdown: Insta-Downloads

Does anyone else find it curious that Phish hasn’t started selling downloads of their upcoming Hampton Coliseum reunion shows on LivePhish.com yet? Does this mean the band – who pioneered selling downloads of their shows within hours of the shows ending – won’t be continuing the beloved Live Phish program? I wouldn’t bank on it. In fact, I’m hoping they have something exciting up their sleeves that they’ll announce shortly.

For those of you who don’t have the patience to wait for Phish to post the official versions of the shows, Mr. Miner of Phish Thoughts has been working on a mind-blowing concept called No Spoiler downloads. Miner promises that he’ll be serving up unlabeled MP3 downloads of each show within an hour of the band walking off the stage with the help of a team of longtime tapers. Sounds like an incredible idea to us.

Finally, the promoters of Bonnaroo have announced that Phish will perform a late night set on Friday and close the festival on Sunday with Bruce Springsteen headlining on Saturday night. Hopefully this will lead to some sick sit-ins during the weekend involving members of Phish.

  1. Hopefully the rain goes away. What with all the Disc Golf and Regular Golf people are planning. And we saw what happened with Phish the last time rain was involved.

    Who’s ready to hike it to Hampton!

  2. I think it would be interesting and kind of cool if they only sold some shows via livephish.com and left others to just be distributed around as AUD tapes the old-fashioned way.

  3. man, the other day the forecast was all sun, and not it’s all rain.

    gotta love weather forecasts, STILL not a science
