Phish Swims Back From the Deep

We’d be surprised if this news truly genuinely delights any of our readers, but we do like to keep you in the know around here, and give you a little laugh occasionally, so, here goes! After four years of separation, Phish, that 90s jam band as beloved by some as it was reviled by others–like us, who never made the leap over from the Grateful Dead (who we saw 13 times)–will reunite. But only for three dates. In Virginia. Random, right? There’s actually a reason Phish is heading south: the band will play at the Hampton Coliseum, where in 1998 its four members recorded the six-CD set Hampton Comes Alive over the course of twelve shows.
