Phish Tribute Band A Live One Spell Out Harris Wittels’ Name with Setlist at Harris Phest

Yesterday marked what would have been the 33rd birthday of comedian, writer and avid music fan Harris Wittels, who died in 2015, and Houston, TX’s 8th Wonder Brewery hosted Harris Phest, a celebration of Wittels’ memory, with a special set from Phish cover band A Live One.

For the night’s setlist, the band spelled out Wittels’ full name, staring with “Harry Hood,” “AC/DC Bag,” “Run Like an Antelope,” “Rocky Top,” “If I Could” and “Simple” and continuing with “Wolfman’s Brother,” “I Can’t Go For That,” “Theme From the Bottom,” “Tube,” “Emotional Rescue,” “Llama” and “Suzy Greenberg.”

A Live One also nodded to Wittels’ comedic contributions with a tease of the theme song from Parks and Recreation, which Wittels wrote for and sometimes appeared on, during “Simple.” Wittels also hosted a podcast, Analyze Phish.
