4/20 with Touchpants
Touchpants, the musical comedy troupe featuring Chris Friday, Colby Dix and Jon Fishman, have confirmed a spring date. The group will celebrate 4/20 with an April 20 performance at Burlington, VT’s famed Nectar’s. Creedence Clear Silver Bullet and The Whiskey Dicks will open the night and special guests are expected.
Touchpants performed at New York’s Iridium after Phish headlined New York’s Madison Square Garden on New Year’s Eve. Their late night set included a tongue-in-cheek take on Phish’s “Alaska.” Touchpants’ website also promises additional April 2013 dates.
Fishman has played more music than usual between Phish tours since he moved back to Vermont in 2012. He recently reunited his band Pork Tornado for a one-off performance at South Burlington, VT’s Higher Ground in celebration of his wife’s birthday.
