We’re a little over a week away from the start of Phish’s ninth multi-day festival otherwise known as Super Ball. In addition to the seven scheduled sets of music from the Phab Phour, festival goers are also being offered a number of onsite activities and attractions, with the latest being an onsite JEMP Records pop-up store, to be located adjacent to the House Of Live Phish.
The store will “feature a vast array of releases from the band’s catalog from years past as well as more recent releases,” as well as exclusive, “brand new Phish vinyl releases each day of the festival.” This will include first time releases of The White Tape (180g white vinyl), Party Time (2-LP 180g vinyl) and a very limited number of Two Soundchecks on 7″ vinyl which was previously released in April for Record Store Day.
