Phish MSG NYE Run

What a run!  I was lucky enough to attend 12/28, a last minute decision (like every MSG show I’ve attended), courtesy of my wife! Although we were in section 304, the view and sound were amazing!

Auld Lang Syne was accompanied by recorded cat and dog noises as cat and dog balloons and raindrop-shaped stress ball fell from the ceiling.

Grab all four setlists at a discounted price! Or grab a mini-poster set of the run.   I know wall space can be limited, so I’m offering mini posters (8.5×11) of the NYE Run. Even though they are half the size, there is no loss in detail, and this allows all the posters to be framed together, or displayed in document sized frames that will use up the space size of 2 regular posters!msg-run-2016

Still Waiting (for Fall Tour)

I recently had the time to do some much needed maintenance to my Shop, as well as to this site.  I’ve streamlined my shop, and at the same time added more items. Through the power of scroll-down menus, I was able to add setlists from previous years. I’ve also changed up this site, including updating the setlist archives.  It’s now easier to go to a specific show  or tour with endless scrolling.

I have previous year setlists on sale, including deals if you purchase multiple show runs!  I also have 2016 show posters available for all the summer tour shows.  Sadly, I doubt I’ll be able to do show posters for  all of Fall tour (it’s been a busy school year so far) but I might do a poster for all of tour, possibly a block print.   I’ll of course be creating setlists for fall, and with them new song illustrations.  I’m also opening up commissions for any show setlists for only $25!  You tell me the show, I create the setlist with header art, at a very limited edition of 10.  I can also do multiple shows for a discounted price.    You can contact me below if interested, or hit me up on various forms of internet (FB, IG,Twitter links on the side menu).  And as always, a dollar from every setlist sold is donated to Mockingbird Foundation as a thank you for allowing me to use their setlist notes for my setlist art!

During I Didn’t Know, Trey introduced Fishman as “The Man Mulcahy.” The crowd sang the last verse of I Didn’t Know, and Fish then asked the crowd to join him in singing Happy Birthday to his daughter, Ella. The third set began with the band on a second stage beneath a funnel-shaped screen suspended from the ceiling. As the band jammed, part of the screen descended and became an hourglass shape surrounding the stage, on which a series of images were projected. As the jam continued and the countdown to midnight approached, the band returned to the main stage.

[1] Phish debut; Fishman on vacuum.

Notes:  The Birds was teased during the jam out of Theme, then teased and quoted during Cities. The Phish debut of Dem Bones began acapella, then Fish moved to vacuum. The song was then stopped because, Trey said, the vacuum had become stuck to Fish’s face. Fish went behind the stage with Brian to fix the problem, and Mike suggested they switch it “from suck to blow.” There was the sound of a small explosion and the lights went out. A giant inflatable Fishman then emerged from behind the stage and took off over the crowd, while the balloon drop, including Henrietta donut balloons, occurred and the band played Auld Lang Syne.

Phish Big Cypress NYE Illustrated Setlist

People asked, so I did my best to deliver. This show was pretty tricky due to the number of songs, so I opted for a larger format.  I have prints for sale via Fine Art America right now, but I’m working to do a limited hand signed edition, hopefully in a 12×18 or 18×24 size that would be more economical to both the buyer and I.  I’ll be doing more shows based off of requests and commissions in the near future, as well as the Miami NYE run coming right up!
