Well it's the first wrap up of 2012 and I hope you all had a spectacular New Years run. Regardless of the mixed reviews coming in about the Phish shows, I had a phenomenal time and you can read all about it right here in the next few days. But, until then, let's go over what happened during this first week of the year.
The night before New Years Eve, Phish released an archived performance from 12/31/91 at the Worcester Memorial Auditorium in Worcester, MA. This was a very busy year for Phish, performing more than 130 shows including a 14 night run with horns and the first legendary stop at Amy's farm. This night was particularly special as it was the biggest venue they played in, started the New Years tradition, and introduced a whole new level of visual appeal to the show. This three set, Live Phish release is the first matrix release, combining both soundboard and audience recordings compiled by Jon Altschiller and mastered by Fred Kevorkian.
Mike Gordon performed on Friday night in the gorgeous downtown atrium of World Financial Center Winter Garden in New York City to kickoff the New York Guitar Festival. Alongside Larry Campbell, ambient duo Itsnotyouitsme, David Torn, Noveller, and Tortoise's Jeff Parker, Cactus performed Brian Eno's Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks, a tribute to the NASA moon landings, for what is believed to be the first time ever. Their moving and fascinating soundscape accompanied clips from the film for which it was commissioned, Al Reinhardt's For All Mankind, and quotes from Buzz Aldrin about the beauty and density of our universe. The whole performance was incredibly moving, and to see Gordo in a totally different light so close to watching him drop bombs in Madison Square Garden was a little unreal. He didn't use his normal Phish approach, and his delicate touch under Campbell's lap steel and the unique guitar melodies created a wonderful atmospheric journey.
Umphrey's McGee did a three night run in St. Louis, MO, and for those of us who couldn't make it down there, we have a handful of great photo galleries to chose from. Known scene photographer Tammy Wetzel contributed her gorgeous shots to Hidden Track and captured the essence of Umphrey's incredible light displays. Abby Matthews' photos are on display on Bands That Jam, and to her, it was the intimacy and the musical capacity of these talented guys that made such a spectacular event. Also check out Brian Spady's gallery over at Honest Tune and Chad Smith's impressive gallery on jambase to get a feel for the night.
After a lengthy battle over rights, rock documentarian Malcolm Leo has begun production an Jerry Garcia film using footage taken at the height of his popularity. Centered around a candid conversation between Jerry and Leo, the documentary also features rare footage from peak performances at San Francisco's Fillmore East. We can expect it to be out by spring, but until then, check out some rare live footage that they've recently dug up.
In other anticipatory Grateful Dead news, Phil Lesh has finally found a space for his dream venue, Terrapin Crossroads. The space in San Rafael, CA, will double as a performance hall/restaurant and feature jam session with special guests similar to Levon Helm's Midnight Rambles. This exciting new venue is expected to open in the spring of 2012. ~ Carly Shields
