It’s been a rough winter in Philly. Cold weather, frozen pipes, and power outages having me longing for spring. So much I couldn’t wait to have my Spring sale. All setlists from summer, fall, and the NYE run have been discounted. Single sets are $8 (from $12) as well as discounts for the multi-night runs. Orders ship with stickers and extras, and as always, $1 from each sold sold is donated to Mockingbird Foundation!

I finally finished up last nights show setlist. This one was a bit trickier, since Phish ended up playing a 12 song second set (plus a 2 song encore). This set (while awesome), threw off my 11×14 grid system that had been working all tour so far. I sat last night with two options: Try to cram everything on an 11×14 area, which would make the images smaller and obviously crammed together, or expand to 11×17. I opted for the latter, which makes this print an oddball, unless they keep this trend up.
As with the others, this print is available for sale via etsy. As I may have mentioned before, set notes are courtesy of Phish.net, who were gracious enough to allow me to use them. In appreciation, a portion of proceeds from each illustrated setlist benefits the Mockingbird Foundation, a nonprofit founded by Phish fans that support music education for children.
I’ll be getting ready to illustrate the Northerly Island run, although it’ll be tough since I’ll be out of town. I will try to get at least sketches up via twitter, with finished prints available early next week. Make sure to follow me on twitter : @joseeen to see my set list sketches, generally after each set!
Apologies for the lack of updates, it’s been a hectic couple days with SPAC run (couch/camptour), The Mann shows (which I attended), then the inevitable wook flu I’ve had the last couple days. I’ve managed though to finished up the SPAC setlists as well as the first night of Mann (only 2 shows behind!) These are all available via etsy, as well as discounts for purchasing whole runs of shows
Last night of SPAC was my favorite of couch tour, in this case camp tour. I thought I’d be missing it since I was doing a family camping weekend. Luckily I was able to get a stream of the show that sounded good, and got to enjoy first set along a lake, and second set in front of a fire.
Mann show was quite the experience. It’s been months since a show, so I was psyched to be able to see them 20 minutes from my house. I was also excited for the lot scene, which from what I heard opened at 9am. First thing we noticed when we got there was that there were cops everywhere. which I didn’t think much of. I’ve sold my antelope canvases before without a problem, even from the Phish copyright police, who ok’ed them at Burgettstown in 2012. So I walked around, sold a couple, and on my way back saw a cop eyeing them. He seemed like he dug them, but then hesitantly told me “You can’t sell those here” He seemed bummed to have to tell me, but then told me “People are getting all their stuff confiscated”, which I wasn’t about to do. Naturally after this encounter, people kept calling me over to see them, but with the cop starting to walk towards me, I decided to cheese it to my car. 😦
The show itself was something else. An impending thunderstorm and announcers telling us to go to our car, we remained stubborn and found shelter under the walkway (Not under a tree, like some people decided to do). We huddled up, made new friends, and shared a flask until the storm subsided. The show didn’t start until 9:20 or so, which was weird because first set was in complete darkness. We expected a long set, but were surprised to find out they were coming back for another set. Thank jeebus that Mann’s curfew is 12:30!
