Phish covering The Band's "Look Out, Cleveland" (R. Robertson)
Some kick-ass detective work from the folks over at Online Phish Tour. Disguising themselves as Marco Esquandolas and getting to the bottom of these never-ending Limestone rumors. However, who says this director has never heard of "Marco Esquandolas"?
After a series of new rumors spread over the web claiming that Phish would wrap up their summer tour with another weekend festival at Loring Air Force Base in Limestone, Maine I decided to do some simple yet informative investigating.
I found and contacted the person in charge of booking events at Loring, pretending I was a concert promoter looking to possibly set up a rock and art festival there the last weekend of August (the rumored dates are the first weekend after the end of the tour, Aug. 27th - 29th).
This tour has continued to demonstrate a more refined meander-less jamming style. Every jam seems to be about capturing the energy of the crowd and translating it into notes, rather than just psychedelic exploration. And, while Trey is rewriting the book on guitar, Mike has emerged as an equal carving out his own unique sound. Jon is playing like Bill Bruford, and Page is not only showing his improved chops, but also his talent for songwriting.

Remember to treat this rumor as you would any other rumor, with a huge grain of salt and a side of bullshit.
This is so low key that only a few people back stage knew about where the festival was. However, I talked to others that knew about the festival, but didn’t know where yet. For example, I talked to the bands set/show photographer and he was told that he was booked for a festival in late Aug., but was not told where. He was told to keep the dates open for a Phish weekend festival. I also talked to a guy on the sound board that knew about a festival in late Aug. but stated, “I can’t tell you anymore than that, stay tuned”.
