Phish to play Merriweather Post Pavilion this summer

Phish is going on the road again this summer.

The tour, which kicks off  Memorial Day, will include two stops at Merriweather Post Pavilion, June 11 and June 12. Tickets will go on sale on the band's website on March 11.

The band has performed in Maryland for the last two summers. Here is a review of that the last show.

In other concert news: West Virginia's All Good Festival announced its line-up today, and it includes veterans Further and Primus as well as Australia's version of Dave Matthews, the John Butler Trio, among others.

The festival, billed "the Mid-Atlantic's most diverse camp-out music festival," takes place July 14-17. Tickets are available on its website.

Parts & Labor, the Brooklyn noise trio, also announced a new Spring tour. They will perform at Golden West April 29.

I've been to the "ALLGOOD FESTIVAL" and it is, in fact, all good. They do a nice job with having two stages next to each other, so sets alternate. Bands aren't playing at the same time, there's no break in the music, and you just have to turn your head to see the next band. The only downside is that camping sucks, but I'm not sure the organizers can be blamed for that.
Also, I'm setting the over/under on arrests at this year's Phish shows at 25.

Time for the meatstick,

Guyute was the ugly pig, who walked on me and danced a jig, that he had heard when he was six, then stopped and did some other tricks, like pulling weapons from his coat and holding them against my throat, he lectured me in language strange, then scampered quickly out of range....

What the hell is going on here?

I'm sure howard cnty's "finest" will be out and about spending your hard earned tax dollars with their ATV's, helicopters, and overtime hours shaking violent hippies down for their last grilled cheese sandwich. What a joke!
Hey Howard County Police Mahn! Police Mahn came to my house!

I hope you're right.
