The B List: Best Costumes @ Festival 8

Now that we’ve had a few weeks to look at all of the photos from Phish’s Festival 8, we’ve put together our list of the best costumes at the event. It was a difficult decision as there were dozens of amazing ideas from multiple Festival 8 basketball teams to various Angry Mobs of Joggers to Pocahontas, but we whittled down the contenders to a list of ten.

10. American Gladiators

Phish Festival 8 Soundcheck Setlist, Extended Recap & Audio

Earlier this evening, part of Phish’s soundcheck from Festival 8 was streamed over The Bunny through 959jackfm.com on the eve of the band’s first two sets at the beautiful Empire Polo Fields in Indio, CA.


The quartet originally took the stage in the early afternoon for an acoustic soundcheck that included Back On The Train and Let Me Lie that wasn’t broadcast, but around 9:45 The Bunny came alive with the sounds of Phish.

After starting this “electric soundcheck” with an intense jam the group moved onto a typically funky version of the title track from 2004’s Undermind. Trey picked up on the similarities between Undermind and Mitch Rydell’s Devil With A Blue Dress and the rest of the band followed him for a quick run through the chorus and a half a verse of so.
