Phish - 8/3/14 at 7:30-11pm
Phish was founded in 1983 when freshman Trey Anastasio posted flyers around the University of Vermont Campus, looking for musicians to form a band. (Why didn't he use Craigslist? Unclear). Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon and Jeff Holdsworth answered the flyer and soon Phish was gigging regularly in the Burlington area. The lineup solidified in 1985, when keyboardist Page McConnell joined the group (and persuaded Anastasio and Fishman to join him at nearby Goddard College) and Holdsworth left soon after. After that, it has been a steady climb from Burlington club band to rodeo-clown backing group to regional touring act to bigger clubs, and eventually theatres and arenas worldwide. Handicapped Accessible (Limited) event. Call for cost and reservations. Phone: 404-733-5010 - Address: Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, 2200 Encore Pkwy, Alpharetta, GA
