Quick Hit: Phish @ MSG, 7/28-30

Photo by Steve Olker
Today's Quick Hit is a little longer than usual, because we recap all 3 weekend shows. Apologies for the delay, but hey, we were seeing Phish shows, so we thought you'd understand. The 4 of us (Jonathan, Brad, RJ, Matt) break down the weekend shows and we play some music too. Of course.

You can listen to the Quick Hit directly here

This has been quite a run, and we're looking forward to what's next. We have 3 fan submitted reviews from last night's show, so that's pretty cool. Keep them coming!

You can look at Phish.net for the setlists from the last 3 nights, and check out the JamBase coverage as well!

Thank you again to everyone who came out to support our live show at American Beauty. We will release the audio of that later this week! There will be more of these! Photo above.

Quick Hit Bonus: "Behind the Donuts" w/Felicia

We're really excited to chat with Felicia today about her experience so far at MSG and, of course, donuts. She tells us about how the partnership between Federal Donuts and Phish came together, and how they actually pulled this thing off. Congrats to Federal Donuts for such an amazing contribution to this run. So much more in store. You can listen directly to the conversation here.

We also play a bit of the Moma Dance from night 2, which Felicia especially appreciated.

If you're not familiar with Federal Donuts, they are based in Philly and just opened the first shop outside of Philadelphia, in Miami. They're also releasing a cookbook in September, and they do some awesome philanthropic work through Rooster Soup Co.

We'll be back tomorrow with another Quick Hit from night 4 (jam is the theme!). If you haven't yet, RSVP for our live podcast recording this Saturday at American Beauty NYC.

Intro/Outro Music: Burl Ives, The Donut Song
