Surrender to the Flow #50

I was recently interviewed for the last issue of Surrender to the Flow, a publication created by Phish fans for Phish fans.  If you’ve gone to any show in the last 18 years, chances are you’ve seen them on lot.

20160714_095911  20160714_095926

A treasure trove of vital information any phan should know about the venues they’ll be visiting, as well as stories and articles about the band, scene, and phans. Created in 1998 (before the luxury of smartphone), each issue told you what you need to know for your trip, especially when doing multi city tours.

I was interviewed by Sydne Kasle, who ran across my artwork on the internet.  She contacted me with questions (that I’m sure a lot of people had), and I was happy to answer! The issue(their 50th!), was given out for free at all the east coast shows.  You can also download the issue as a PDF here.  It’s free, but you can always donate to support this publication, which is created by volunteers.  Surrender to the Flow is currently on their 51st issue, which covers and will be available during Phish’s west coast run, as well as online.

Phish 7/1-7/3/16 SPAC

It always feels good to be back at SPAC!  I was able to attend these shows with a large group of close friends, which made the run very enjoyable, aside for the rainstorm right before the first show (I got soaked of course, and it felt great).  We stayed at a house/recording studio 30 minutes from the venue, a nice change from the hotel scene. The lot scene was great, SPAC is known for its shakedown, and it doesn’t fail to deliver.  I brought my SPAC posters to sell and got a very positive reaction (and quite a few sales!)   I still have some left, but they are going fast!
