Phish To Jam For Days In Watkins Glen
Phish, a definite favorite of Andy and myself have formally announced they will be playing at Watkins Glen International, the famous road race course located just a short drive from our periodic stomping grounds of Corning, NY.
The concert will take place July 1-3 coinciding with the Indy Racing League event held the weekend of Independence Day.
The concert harkens back to 1973 when the Summer Jam at Watkins Glen attracted over 600,000 patrons to upstate New York to hear music from The Allman Brothers Band, The Band and Grateful Dead.
It was considered to be the largest outdoor concert in the U.S. by the Guinness Book for some time.
Here's a video from Phish's performance June 29, 2010 at CMAC in Canandaigua, NY.
In attendance were myself, Cutting Room Floor drummer Alan Brown and friend of the blog Chris Parry. It was most excellent.
