Catch Phish on the Net From SPAC

Not going to be around this holiday weekend to catch Phish at Saratoga Performing Arts Center?

There’s still hope for you.

20131023-Phish-17 will be streaming the three-day event over the Internet.

Phish is coming to Saratoga Performing Arts Center on July 3-5. One of the crown jewels of venues at which the ever-popular jamband will stop to perform during this year’s summer tour.

It’s a developing trend for venues and artists to telecast their performances over the Internet. It certainly is a perk for those who are unable to obtain tickets, or simply can’t travel the distance to attend the show.  But, for those who can attend, should.

For one, live events have an appeal that can not be replicated on a computer. And, another reason was reported by us back in June, when it was announced that the Putnam Den would host late-night shows at two locations: Putnam Den and The Parting Glass in downtown Saratoga Springs.

The post-shows in Saratoga have become a destination after seeing Phish at SPAC, with up and coming bands, as well as local bands ready to burst onto the scene and keep fans dancing into the wee hours of the night. The lineup for this year’s post-shows is yet another installment of great music that shows the vibrant scene of Upstate New York.

It’s to be expected that the group will be playing  some tracks from their most recent album, Fuego, which they debuted earlier this month.  Please be sure to read Myke Menio’s review of it here.
