Jon Fishman to Play Post New Year’s Eve Show with Touchpants
Jon Fishman will perform with his shock comedy troupe Touchpants on January 1. The gig will take place at New York’s Iridium at 2 AM, shortly after Phish wraps-up a three-set show at Madison Square Garden. Promotional materials for the gig urge fans to “come watch the second ball drop.”
In addition to Fishman, the group includes Colby Dix, Chris Friday and Aram Bedorsian. While Phish was broken up from 2004-2008, Fishman frequently performed with Touchpants. He’s played a few gigs with the Touchpants since then too, usually in the Burlington, VT-area. Perhaps as a testament to their type of humor, members of the band perform while sitting on a toilet.
