Mike Gordon Band performs "Can't Stand Still" at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, PA on March 7, 2010.
In the middle of the summer of 1988, a young band from Vermont drove a beat-up truck across the country to Telluride to play a string of shows here.
They stayed on the floor of a house called the Purple Palace and made nearly a thousand bucks in their first tour out West.
In the middle of the summer of 2010, it appears, they’ll be back. Only this time, Phish will play the main stage of Town Park to 9,000 people a night. And Phish probably won’t be staying on someone’s floor.

Read Scott Murawski's blog for his thoughts on the Baltimore show:
Regardless of the sound issues for me, the band sounded great. It was a playful evening, initiated by the Danny Barnes sit in. He came up for Deranged, a rare and bizarre David Bowie tune taken from a movie soundtrack. In the middle of this we inserted Walls Of Time, the bluegrass tune which seem to fit effortlessly into the middle. At this point Danny, Mike and I met in the middle of the stage and passed our instruments to the person to the left. This put Mike on banjo, Danny on guitar, and me on bass, and we played most of the tune this way. Near the end Mike and Danny swapped and Mike wailed a guitar solo. (He is one of my favorite guitarists…) Then we swapped back and finished deranged.
We broke out the new Tom tune in the first set too. Mike had been looking for a tune in the repertoire that had a repetitive vocal ending that wasn’t the chorus of the song and we found it in this tune. Very anthemic.
Second set we broke out my tune, Jones, for the first time. The groove on this was so thick and when we rehearsed it we only played one verse and chorus, and I ended up rearranging it on the spot.
