Phish’s WaterWheel Foundation to Host Niagara Falls Release Party

The WaterWheel Foundation will host a release party for Phish’s new Niagara Falls 3-CD set this Saturday, November 9 at Nectar’s in Burlington, VT. The event-which is set to take place from 5pm-9pm—will feature a screening of archival footage synched with the new audio. The party will be the only chance to hear the release before it goes on sale on November 12.

Fans are also encouraged to contribute to WaterWheel at the door, and ten non-perishables or $5 will put you in a raffle to win a lot of great prizes.

You can listen to the “Reba” and “Slave to the Traffic Light” from Phish’s upcoming Niagara Falls release here. The 3-CD set features a remastered recording of the band’s December 7, 1995 performance at the Niagara Falls Convention Center in Niagara Falls, NY.

Is this going to be free to all the people the band kicked in the face in 2013 by not practicing, playing stale setlists and dropping the ball in AC? It should be because its not 03-04 no matter if they play that sloppy or not.

answer November 5, 2013, 18:22:42

Yes. It will be free to all of those people.
Which is no one.

Are you kidding me with the non-practicing comment?? They just spent the last year writing 20+ new songs, spent the last month or so locked in the barn practicing, and played an entire set of said songs incredibly well for a first time to see the day of light scenario. Besides, the practice was so very obvious on these last run of shows. Some of the best if not the best they have sounded in over a decade. Check yourself before you riggity wreck yourself question.

What if I ordered already and would really just like to reorder the webcast of Wingsuit on 10/31 so I can remember how ridiculously bad it is and was? Can I do an exchange. It is tough to take the energy out of room in such a unique way. Take 7500 people and subtract 1500 that wanted to pretend to be part of something special and you have 6000 shocked disappointed people listening to Mike on a Stand Up bass with a scarf on during the most disappointing set in the history of the band.

Are you new to the band? You say this is the best run of shows in a decade? Really? Have you heard the Hartford Fluffhead? Now you start fluffing them about practicing these new “songs” or what have you. A little history about Phish. They existed before 2000 which is unknown to many who attend shows these days. In 1996 while on tour they learned Remain in Light WHILE also recording parts of Billy Breathes and tacking on some new tunes. Your argument becomes moot as they have worked on these songs for a couple months. Thanks for playing though. But hey you are right they weren’t sloppy this year the Worcester Mike’s is pretty epic!

hey huh November 5, 2013, 19:12:52

You do realize they learned Remain in Light while touring and recording Billy Breathes right? Stop giving them credit for not practicing. This tour was god awful. Listen to Hartford set 2 specifically the Fluffhead and Slave compositions or Mikes from Worcester or the end of CDT from Hartford or most Themes or Slaves from the year. Trey messes almost every version this year. If you do think they practiced why cant they play the song Slave any more? Look at Hartford or even this summer in Chicago, both had good jams though which take absolutely no practice for Phish after 20 years.
