This summer the Vermont foursome Phish will set up shop at Madison Square Garden for an unprecedented 13 straight shows or as they are calling it their bakers dozen.
Pretty crazy. NYC is the best city in the world, but one detriment to live music fans is that there really isn't a solid outdoor venue in the area. PNC is fine, but you need to drive, don't get me started on Jones Beach, and we can all mourn that McCarren Pool went back to swimming instead of shows, but this now puts a huge event square in the big apple during the summer hazy days.
Years ago we would have tried to hit them all, now we will be happy with one show, rumor has it each show may be themed (ie: "Boston Creme Night" will include Boston and Cream covers) so special phishy moments are sure to abound.
Here is some live Phish to get you in the mood with "The Wedge":
