This is a past event.


When: Sun., June 24 2012
Certain bands, at certain points in their careers, stop being bands and turn into something way more culturally significant. There are different signposts along the way to tell you when a group has reached that point, when what they become doesn’t have much, if anything, to do with music anymore. Action figures get you to that place (hello, Kiss!). So does having your own ice cream flavor. Phish were always destined for this sort of legacy, with their open, inclusive, and audience-centric approach to, well, everything. Their Summer of Love spirit can be infectious, even if their music -- a multicultural mishmash of styles and jams so extended that it’s hard to figure out where the actual song fits into the whole thing – isn't. To put it simply: There are those people who just don't get Phish, and then there are those noodle-dancing fans who'll be happy to tell those other people that they just don’t get it, man. It's been three years since Phish's last album, Joy, came out, but no matter. It hasn't been about the music for years. 8 p.m. Tickets: $45, $60. – Nicholas Hall
