Cast Your Vote for Our Ultimate Phish Setlist

There’s a lot for us to be excited about over here at the Relix / office, particularly in the realm of Phish. Not only is the Vermont quartet gracing the cover of our July-August issue of Relix, but they’ve also just kicked off this year’s summer tour after releasing their first studio album in half a decade!

In honor of all of these occasions, we’ve decided to have a little bit of fun. That’s why we’re soliciting your help to create our ULTIMATE PHISH SETLIST.

Here’s how it goes:

Every weekday for the next 20 days we will be asking our Facebook fans to vote for the next song in our Ultimate Phish Setlist. Since Phish shows contain, on average, roughly 20 songs, we’ll be dreaming up a show with a 10 song first set, an 8 song second set and a 2 song encore.

Fans that would like to cast a vote can do so by COMMENTING (not Liking) the name of the song on that day’s Ultimate Phish Setlist Facebook post. Any song in the Phish canon will be acceptable, including covers that the band has played before. The voting process is complicated enough as is, so all song transitions, teases etc. will be determined by the Relix staff. Fans will only be allowed to vote once, and those that vote multiple times will not have their requests counted.

We will be counting the votes each day before our next voting post goes up, and each new post will contain the updated setlist. Finally, we will announce the Ultimate Phish Setlist on Monday, August 4 – the day after Phish wraps up their summer tour.

Now that we’ve got all that out of the way, it’s time for you to vote! What song would you choose as the opener in your Ultimate Phish Setlist?

No problem guys, just use your twitter handle and/or your linked-in account and we’d be happy to include you in our program. If none of those work for you, we are sorry, you simply don’t exist.

yeah, also not on facebook, so can’t participate. would be cool if you just used a more traditional survey monkey or google spreadsheet voting method, then advertised that on your fbook and twitter, to ensure maximum participation potential. oh well.

Really Phish phan????Facebook is not exactly new. It’s not that hard even if you are wasted out of your mind. Step your game up.

WOW... I thought I was the only guy left in the universe who wasn’t, nor ever will be on Facebook… or any other “sign up, or you’re not welcome” site… Glad to see there are others! Funny Dave the Douche is so adverse to a buzz, but eats up the public postings like it’s the blue meth… cool guy!
