Ten years ago, two distinctly different yet strangely similar worlds collide in San Franciscol

Trey Anastasio & Phil Lesh

Trey Anastasio & Phil Lesh

You had to imagine at one point it would happen…  The world that is  “Phish” would run straight into an aging, yet equallly revolutionary world– the Grateful Dead.  On April 15th 1999 this often talked about dreamteam took the stage. 

Phil Lesh invited two members of Phish, Trey Anastasio and Page McConnel, to take the stage for three absolutely epic shows that will stand the test of time– be talked about as some of the best music created in the 90s for years upon years to come.

One can only imagine what it was like to attend the show, but luckily the magic tranlates extremely well onto CD.  Do yourself a favor and if you haven’t heard heard these shows, do not pass go, do not collect $100, and listen to the fucking shows immediately!

You can download the shows, or stream them for free at archive.org.  From the very first few notes of music played, the audience and listeners alike know they are in for an enormous treat!  A truly must-listen for any music fan.  I remember being 17 years old, turned onto Phish a few years prior, glued to my computer watching the setlist pour in on a Phish Message Board.  California seemed like world’s away at that point, especially to go see a rock concert.  Ten years later, I find myself living an hour from where the shows took place.
