Any phrummies going to Phish?December 25, 2011 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #841704
I’d love to see them, but they aren’t coming to my area any time soon. They are one of the best jam-bands. I’m hoping to see Machine Head in around a month.December 25, 2011 9:28 pm at 9:28 pm #841705Bar ShattyaMember

cleverjewishpun, nice! Congrats on the purchase! Any news with the pedal board? And that’s funny about the unwashed hippies! Quite true…I think I’ll stick to just listening to their albums.December 25, 2011 11:33 pm at 11:33 pm #841709☕️coffee addictParticipant

I picked up a new pedal tuner so what I am going to do is run the tuner through the tuner out loop.
During gigs where I’m going to use my wireless unit i will use an extra long cable so I can keep the pedal receiver as far away as possible.
But for the near future I will be using the new 25 foot Monster cable I got.December 26, 2011 2:40 am at 2:40 am #841711
cleverjewishpun, that’s good, but I thought you didn’t want a pedal tuner?
Nice choice on the Monster cable. I’m gonna be replacing mine the next time I go to Guitar Center. I also need a few new drum sensors, they wear out pretty quickly, unfortunately. Maybe I’m just playing too rough. But it’s hard to be gentle when you’re playing ‘Down With the Sickness’..December 26, 2011 4:50 am at 4:50 am #841712
Yeah DTWS is going to be very rough on your drums. I still remember seeing that song live at The Metro before that record came out…sold out show before the world knew who they were.
I’m ok with the pedal tuner on second though, I think it was just the actual board I was using and the daisy chain power cable that was giving me problems. I’m going to try the new setup for all of January and if it works then I will keep it.
Yeah I got a good deal on the cable so I decided to go for it.December 27, 2011 3:16 am at 3:16 am #841713
cleverjewishpun, sweet! I’m sure they played with the same intensity then as they do now. Their shows are so full of energy.
Good luck with the new setup!December 27, 2011 3:24 am at 3:24 am #841714
oh my oh MY! UNWASHED phrum hippies in the CR! NOw the truth comes out…i know all about you people because….well…never mind. I am frum now.December 28, 2011 1:53 pm at 1:53 pm #841715phrumMember
So anyone up for minyanim at the waterwheel tent during Phish’s set break?
Rodeo!December 28, 2011 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm #841716
Ignorance must be bliss, but leads to being transparent.
For those who have an ear for music or are musicians, Phish happens to be very talented. Of course, no one can touch their mentors, the Grateful Dead, all maestros in their own right.
The fact that people come out with their stereotypical insults, based on zero experience, only shows that when you point a finger at someone, there are four more pointing back at you.
Gimme a break! lolDecember 28, 2011 10:16 pm at 10:16 pm #841717
BTGuy are you an ex-deadhead? I remember when Jerry died, one of our friends said, ” its a good thing because now everyone can grow up and stop touring and join the real world”.
I would seriously feel bad and feel its a tumadigge environment to do a minyan in a Phish concert. After all what do they represent? What is torahdigge about them? That one band member is Jewish? OR a few more? Its a mixed seating, its pritzus dress code, its smoking marijuana.
One needs to leave behind the tuma when they de-cloak from the world and enters the frum life. Other wise its like toiveling in the mikveh, meanwhile holding a reptile in their hand- at the same time.
I saw on Youtube once a ‘jerusalem kitchen’ with minyan at a Rainbow Gathering. This is a problem because we are like trying to have both worlds. We’re bringing our yiddishkeit to a hippie festival? And hoping to practice amongst all their shticks? Doesn’t fly. Stick around Williamsburg or boropark.December 28, 2011 11:59 pm at 11:59 pm #841718moishyParticipant
Anyone wanna please explan to me what this is??December 29, 2011 2:14 am at 2:14 am #841719
This is a thread who would be understood by hippies.
Phish is a rock band that looks and sounds like the Grateful Dead which was a band from the 1960’s on drugs.December 29, 2011 2:29 am at 2:29 am #841720Sam2Participant
Scissors: Is there anything Assur about going to the concert (I think there is, but that’s a separate issue)? If someone have a valid P’sak to go, then why shouldn’t they make a Minyan?December 29, 2011 5:13 am at 5:13 am #841721
oy, seriously Sam2, just phathoming the idea turns my stomach.
I am serious. Why bring yiddish kiet to a concert? If you want holiness and spirituality you aint gonna find it at a Phish Concert. And if you think you have, then you won’t find it in Torah.
They are anti-thesis to one another.
been there done that.December 29, 2011 3:42 pm at 3:42 pm #841722
Hi always runs with scissors.
I am not an ex-Deadhead. I will always remain one. lol
I remember when Jerry was niftar and it was shocking. What a shame, and what a huge loss.
It would be an understatement to say I love them and miss the band with Jerry immensely. Bobby and Phil and Mickey and Bill are still like family and I try to see them when I can as The Dead, although I have not seen them as Further.
I can also add the lyrics of Robert Hunter are as poetic and mystical as any you will ever find
Don’t get me started..lol
As musicians, they are all maestros in their own right. Their songs are timeless and filled with lessons and wonder like no other band. Basically, they are a “band beyond description”. lol
They have a way of hitting the spot like no other band, ever.
Okay, dont get me started.. lol
Just a note, I dont think it is difficult to be Jewish at “hippie” events. There are many similarities that start with respect for freedom to be and think as you like. In fact, I find it very comforting to find other frum people at Dead related shows because it is like being at home with two groups of people at once.
You know, in many ways the Dead had a role in moving me to where I am today. They kind of put me on the path of getting in touch with my heart and soul and seeking and wonder and possibilities about being alive, which added to me seeking the Torah to complete and satisfy that yearning.December 29, 2011 4:22 pm at 4:22 pm #841723Sam2Participant
Scissors: Just because it didn’t work for you doesn’t mean that’s true of everyone else. Everyone is different and some people find their inspiration different ways.December 29, 2011 5:44 pm at 5:44 pm #841724
Ok Ok I know where you’re coming from. I actually lived amongst “them” in a state in a place that well, just suffice it to say its very well known the hippie community there.. but I dont want to say. THats also where I got in “touch” and was moved to the path I am on as well, exactly just as you put it. I understand. The point now being that I don’t miss it, or regret letting go. in fact i get anxious watching any of the dancing or music festivals on youtube that go with it. It brings a tuma into my house and heart.
I see it as a stepping stone to the level i am on now. But its definately not “where its at”. WHat age range are you and were you around the shows in the early 90’s?December 29, 2011 7:11 pm at 7:11 pm #841725
Hi always runs with scissors fast.
You dont have to answer, and I will totally respect your decision to not answer, but are you implying you grew up in the Rainbow family or similar commune?
In my preteen and after days, I was steeped in the Kesey, prankster, yippie revolution mindset of the world and found it to be both a brilliant world at best, yet problematic with every Tom, Dick, and Harry jumping on the bandwagon not for the intellectual or cultural reasons.
You must be the most unique person I have come across in any world. To genuinely know of the counter-cultural (truly different in real life than how it is looked upon by outsiders) world and now Torah, makes you a hugely intriguing person.
I dont think there is anyone (other than me, to a lesser degree lol) quite like you.
There are so many questions I want to ask, but I dont want to take up too much space with them or invade your privacy.December 30, 2011 12:57 am at 12:57 am #841726
bt yeah me too. ok askDecember 30, 2011 5:02 am at 5:02 am #841727
So, ok to answer the questions you already posted, No I didn’t come from Rainbow people. LOL I grew up in suburbia, and went normally to a clean public school. I then rebelled as a teenager and early 20 something and “found them”. I started with tour and the GD and then met up with the older kind of people who were settled and had land or a lot and a “little house” in the country types. Someone gave me a house to live in.
I knew some of the people from The Farm, and such Gaskin types.
My friend use to joke her name was Mountain Girl. “you’re either on or off the bus”. (kesey and them).
Its good (for me at least) not to even talk about it. Or mention these names. Its over. It has no holiness. It was steeped in whatever.
But I do have funny stories from those times. You’ll just have to wait for the book.January 4, 2012 4:07 pm at 4:07 pm #841728
HI always runs with scissors fast.
I respect your view that those things are over with. I am still very curious, since I know that scene very well, as to why the total “disownership”, but I respect your privacy on that and no need to articulate those thoughts and feelings. They are personal, and I understand.
On another note, I will wait for your book and read with great interest lol.
Keep me posted.
: DJanuary 4, 2012 4:40 pm at 4:40 pm #841729
BTGuy~ please be advised that there are others posting here who are also ‘unique’, lol.
signed~ was @ Woodstock (up front), now 60 yrs. old & listens to rock ‘n roll every day except during The 3 Wks., S’fira, & Shabbos. ;-DJanuary 4, 2012 6:50 pm at 6:50 pm #841730
Hi always here.
While I was too young to go to Woodstock, I was in the Catskills at the time stringing beads..lol But I was there in spirit and wish I coulda been there.
I can only imagine what it was like to be there. You must have some stories to tell!
And you had to rub it in that you were up front. Just dont tell me you saw Jimi. Forget it..all of them…. CSN, Country Joe, Santana, Richie Havens, Alvin Lee, Jefferson Airplane..dont get me started… lol
Nice to meet you! : DJanuary 4, 2012 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm #841731
BTGuy~ yes, almost all of them (except a very few Sunday night).. yes, Jimi.
have a great personal story w/ Pigpen backstage @ a 1971 City College concert of The Dead, The Allman Brothers, & The Youngbloods (sorry, not for here).
no regrets!!January 4, 2012 10:29 pm at 10:29 pm #841732
I have a gig Saturday night with the new set up.
We’re doing a 75 minute set featuring our best material
I’m excited to hear how I sound with the new rig and some new strings!January 5, 2012 2:45 pm at 2:45 pm #841733
Hi always here.
That does it! lol
Jimi at Woodstock AND Pig Pen backstage in 1971? I fold; I turn in my cards! lol.
I am particularly fond of the Dead during the era up to 71′. Pig Pen’s Hammond Organ and Jerry’s intensely psychedelic guitar riffs. Europe ’72 is awesome too; different sound than the prior, even Warlock years. It’s all great!
You mentioned the Allmans, and I suppose that was when Duane was around. What about Watkins Glen? Ok…we can go on forever..as you know.. lol
Those were interesting and unique times. It’s good to dust off those strings once in a while and make ’em shine.
Now we are truly on the golden road to unlimited devotion; Torah. It doesn’t get any better!
Peace!January 5, 2012 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #841734
