PhanFood cookbook launch party:Celebrate the release of the first cookbook for—and by—fans of Phish


What: PhanFood cookbook launch party

Where: Nectar’s in Burlington, Vermont (where Phish started their career!)

When: Saturday, December 11, 2010 at 7:00 pm

     Save the date! Nectar’s in Burlington, Vermont is hosting a book launch party for the new cookbook, PhanFood: From the Kitchen Pot to the Tour Lot (SUNY Press/Excelsior Editions; December 2010; $19.95 paperback). Join us on Saturday, December 11 from 7:00–9:00 pm for the PhanFood book launch. If you attend this party you’ll also gain free admission to the show at Nectar’s later that evening, with incredible funk and jamband Dopapod headlining. Here’s some more exciting information about the eventful evening:

•  There will be a food drive, so please bring canned foods or other nonperishable items!
•  Taste delicious food from the recipe book, cooked by the contributors!
•  For one night only, Nectar’s will serve drinks featured in the book!
•  Drink specials from Magic Hat, who is sponsoring the event!

     Like the band they follow from city to city, Phish fans have their own history of creativity, which in turn follows them wherever they go—even into the kitchen. Edited by Taraleigh Weathers and Pete Mason, PhanFood brings together many of the recipes that Phish fans have made and shared over the years. Included are appetizers, salads, soups, sandwiches, entrĂ©es, desserts, drinks (with and without alcohol), and a variety of other concoctions that Phish fans enjoy while they are in the lots, at the site, or just sitting at home waiting for the next tour to be announced. PhanFood is also a wholly nonprofit endeavor, with all net profits being donated to regional food banks and charities in the cities where Phish plays.

About the editors:
Taraleigh Weathers is the publisher and editor of Healthy Hippie Magazine, and the Phish correspondent for WCAX News. She lives in Burlington, Vermont. Pete Mason is a special education teacher and the author of Phanart: The Art of the Fans of Phish. He lives in Albany, New York with his dog Halley.

Umphrey's McGee to Offer LIVE Webcast of Halloween Shows

Anticipation is mounting for the Halloween weekend shows at the Pageant in St. Louis, Saturday October 30th and Sunday October 31st. Ticket sales for this unique event have been incredibly strong, and we anticipate both shows being sold out by the weekend. As Umphrey's McGee continues to push the envelope with technology of the 21st century, the musical journey evolves with it, hand-in-hand. The Umphrey’s live-mash up theme is yet another ambitious effort to keep our fans on their toes, mixing and mashing cover songs and original tunes into a blend that is Umphrey’s McGee at its sharpest. In its third year, the Halloween Monster Mash-up this Halloween will undoubtedly take this concept to new heights.

For those of you who can't make it to the party, we're thrilled to announce a special LIVE pay-per-view webcast of the upcoming two night stand. The show will be available for real time viewing and for archive streaming for a six-month period. Single show access for Saturday October 30th will run $4.99, the Halloween Monster Mash Up extravaganza on Sunday October 31st for $6.99, or you can purchase both shows for a discounted price of $9.99.
