Alpine Valley 2010 (JEMP Records)

If you're tired of the cold, this warm and fuzzy two-DVD/two-CD box of Phish captured at Alpine Valley last summer will make you forget about winter. There are few crowd shots—don't look for yourself on camera if you were there—but watching this, it's easy enough to position yourself in the front row...

Tonight @ Alpine Valley, 7 p.m.

More than any of their post-Grateful Dead peers, Phish have emerged as the standard-bearers of the jam-rock scene, but over the years they’ve transcended and outgrown many of the stereotypes that once surrounded them. Guitarist Trey...

Tonight @ Alpine Valley, 7 p.m.

It’s fitting that Phish played one of their final performances in 2004 on the rooftop of the Ed Sullivan Theater in a deliberate nod to The Beatles, since over the previous decade the foursome really had become The Beatles of the jam-rock world, inspiring widespread cultish devotion and legions of young jam bands while cementing the “tours first, albums second” business model that now dominates the scene. Phish’s reputation only grew during their five-year hiatus, and by the time they returned this spring for a trio of storied shows in Hampton, Va., Phish...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, June 18, Sugar Blue @ Jazz in the Park, 6:30 p.m. Attempting to establish a nickname for himself as memorable as those of Muddy Waters and Blind Lemon, harmonica wiz James Whiting adopted the moniker Sugar Blue after picking up an old 78 titled Sugar Blues out of a pile of...

Headlines about Phish's reunion concerts this weekend in the Hamptons have been overshadowed in the last 24 hours by news about drug busts at the concert: Over $1.2 million in drugs were confiscated which is... a lot. There's an angle to the story that isn't getting much play right now. Much of the police presence at these shows was paid for by the band itself, presumably to re...

Tonight @ the Rave - 8:30 PM

Since Primus went dark, save for the occasional tour and retrospective release, madman bassist Les Claypool has had a difficult time committing himself to one steady new band, and has instead played with several short-lived lineups and side projects, most notably Oysterhead with Phish’s Trey Anastasio and The Police’s . . .
