While last night’s show was clearly the runner-up in Nashville compared to the fireworks of night one, Phish certainly delivered the goods, as they yet-again turned in a strong showing that saw a second set filled with classics, and a unique version of “Scents & Subtle Sounds” that featured several teases.Phish started things off with the controversial “Soul Planet”. Certainly not everyone’s favorite new song, the band offered up an impressive version of it nonetheless. As the band finished the song’s main form, drummer Jon Fishman dropped the beat into half-time, and the band locked into a thick groove. Guitarist Trey Anastasio started off with some choppy playing as the rest of the band coalesced around him, eventually taking the lead as the jam moved into psychedelic territory. The early improv seemed to be building nicely, with Anastasio adding the song’s “screaming through space” refrain to push the jam back into the song for a tight conclusion.Out of “Soul Planet” emerged a rare early-show version of “2001”. Anastasio added some more “screaming through space” lines throughout the song for a well-played, funky, tight version. Eventually, “2001” made way for a strong version of Mike Gordon-sung tune “555”, which preceded quick trips through “Farmhouse” and “Halfway To The Moon”, before the band dropped a heartfelt, first-set “Waste” on the Nashville crowd.Phish picked things back up with a raucous back-to-back pairing of “My Friend, My Friend” and “Maze”, before taking the Ascend Amphitheater into space with “Bathtub Gin”. The song’s jam was somewhat restrained at first, with the band gravitating around each other until they launched into a powerful piece of improvisation, with keyboardist Page McConnell and Gordon particularly in tune with each other, allowing Anastasio to solo beautifully over them. The jam moved into dark territory, with Anastasio adding more pedals to his mix while McConnell reached for the upper register of his keyboard. Finally, Anastasio’s guitar pierced through, and he added several ascending blues licks, bringing the band to several peaks before they landed back on “Bathtub Gin” to bring the first set to a close.For set two, Phish dusted off “Down With Disease” for the first time on their Fall Tour. The song’s euphoric refrain blasted the Ascend Amphitheater into another universe. Lighting Designer Chris Kuroda took the opportunity to move his lighting rig up and down wildly above the band while McConnell and Gordon linked up rhythmically, with Fishman pushing the beat aggressively. After a few minutes of type I jamming, the band moved into an ambient space, with Anastasio once again turning to his echo effect as McConnell leaned into his synthesizers. Before long, the band orchestrated a slick transition into The Talking Heads‘ favorite, “Crosseyed and Painless”. The song’s jam took a few minutes to take off, with Anastasio spending a good chunk of time messing with his pedals. Eventually, Fishman cut the beat in half, and the band locked in for only a few short moments before Anastasio took the band in a different direction, cueing a sloppy-but-energetic transition into “Scents And Subtle Sounds”.The Undermind classic was somewhat rough, with Anastasio continuing to miss key moments while the whole band struggled with the song’s complicated vocal harmonies. The band made up for their errors with a funky jam that saw Fishman cut out while allowing the rest of the band to coalesce around him. Finally, Fishman came back in with a heavy hand on his ride cymbal, and the band locked into a thick rhythm. Anastasio added a surprising vocal quote of “Run Through The Jungle” by Creedence Clearwater Revival, as well as a “still waiting” quote from “Crosseyed and Painless” and a “Party Time” refrain, cementing this as a more memorable version of “S&SS” even with the early-song flubs.As “S&SS” fizzled out, Anastasio started up “No Men In No Man’s Land”, the only song to be played at each venue this tour (so far). While the song might be overplayed in 2018, the jams to come out of “No Men In No Man’s Land” have consistently been sublime, and tonight’s version was no different. Anastasio and McConnell were the stars of the show, with soaring guitar and piano parts leading the way during this short-but-sweet jam. “Boogie On Reggae Woman” added some much-needed funk to the evening, and Gordon’s syncopated bass playing was front and center before but the song was quickly aborted in favor of “Harry Hood”. The classic song’s jam is always a crowd-pleaser, and this version saw the band in fine form, with patient playing leading towards the song’s typical euphoric climax.“Run Like an Antelope” was trotted out for the encore, and, minus a few notable flubs during the song’s intro from Anastasio, “Antelope” provided a solid end to a solid show, especially toward the song’s peak when Anastasio slipped in Some “Still Waiting” quotes from “Crosseyed and Painless”.While night two in Nashville didn’t live up to the highs of the epic first night at the Ascend Amphitheater, Phish left the crowd satisfied, begging for more, and wondering how long the drive is from Nashville to Rosemont, IL, where Phish will stop this weekend for a three-night run. Of course, all roads lead to Las Vegas, as the band is gaining momentum for this year’s highly anticipated four-night Halloween run at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV.P.S.

Governor Shumlin announces additional assistance package for towns

Posted on by

first_imgGovernor Shumlin was joined by Treasurer Beth Pearce and other state leaders today to announce an Irene recovery package for municipalities struggling with the effects of the tropical storm. ‘We recognize that the disaster is putting a strain on local governments,’ Shumlin said.  ‘This assistance package will help ensure that they have the support they need to emerge stronger than before the storm hit.’The financial package includes: ·         $24 million in advanced State payments: To assist towns struggling with immediate cash flow needs, the State will advance payments of key state and federal programs.   $6.2 million in town highway funds have been delivered this week instead of on October 15.  $12.3 million in Current Use payments will be advanced this week rather than on November 15.  $5.8 million in Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) payments will be delivered shortly, instead of by October 31.  This is not new revenue to municipalities, but faster revenue, and will help ease short-term cash needs. ·         Local bank loans:  Vermont’s local banks will be offering loans to communities in need with favorable terms.  ·         Municipal Bond Bank loans: The Municipal Bond Bank has initiated a program to assist towns with low-interest loans to finance response and recovery efforts.  In the short term, the Bond Bank will provide stop-gap funding to local banks as needed and may provide direct loans in the future. ·         FEMA Community Disaster Loan (CDL): The State has requested that FEMA initiate its CDL program to assist towns with low-interest loans. ‘The assistance we are announcing today will help the municipalities hard hit by Tropical Storm Irene,’ said Treasurer Beth Pearce.  ‘This package provides a series of options for communities; they can opt for all, none or part of the options beginning with short-term financing all the way through long-term bonding. The banks are on the ground providing short-term financing and the State is advancing payments to municipalities to provide some relief for their short-term cash needs.’ Towns are also struggling with the massive impact that Irene had on the municipal transportation infrastructure.  During the first week of Irene Emergency Response Vermont officials at VTrans realized the extent of damage to local roads and mobilized additional resources to aid towns.  VTrans reached out to the Regional Planning Commissions and the Vermont League of Cities and Towns for assistance.  Vermont’s 11 regional planning commissions (RPCs) formed a State Resource Coordination Center with the mission of helping towns with not only local highway recovery, but also other forms of storm-related assistance. Regional Commission staff have been assessing damage to the local system and today report that Irene washed away more than 1950 local roadway segments, undermined more than 917 culverts, and damaged more than 200 bridges owned by municipalities.   Today, 184 roads and 94 bridges, within the municipal system remain closed.  The regional commissions launched their emergency efforts in coordination with VTrans with the goal of helping towns get the majority of their roads open, safe and passable by winter. ‘The goal of our efforts is to work with towns face that continued stress and mobility challenges, and to help them get back on their feet and establish access through emergency repairs,’ said VTrans Secretary Brian Searles. Road assistance for towns includes: ·         Unmet Emergency Needs Assessment: VTrans has asked towns to request assistance for any unmet emergency needs.  Unmet emergency needs include closed bridges, failed roads, and impassable roads that need to be made safe and passable before winter.  Towns should submit that information to the Regional Commissions as soon as possible and VTrans will work to coordinate additional resources to help towns. ·         VTrans has found that there is a shortage of bridge parts nationwide due to the tremendous need brought on by weather all over the country.  To ensure that towns receive the temporary bridges they need before winter, VTrans will serve as a clearinghouse and source of information on bridge acquisition and a resource for ordering these structures and parts where needed. ·         VTrans and the RPCs will create and update town maps depicting open and closed town roads so the traveling public can plan accordingly. These maps are being used by customer service representatives at VTrans’ Irene Storm Call Center, which can be reached at 1-800-VERMONT. They are also available to the general public at the agency’s website at www.aot.state.vt.us(link is external). To view them, users should activate the ‘local roads and bridges’ section of the Google map.  Smart phone applications of the Google map are also accessible on the Vtrans website. ·         Associated General Contractors (AGC) Clearinghouse: AGC is coordinating Vermont contractors available to help towns repair damaged roads and bridges. This is the principal resource for towns that need outside contracting for rebuilding. ·         Public Assistance (PA) Teams: State & FEMA PA teams are on the ground assisting communities with paperwork needed to obtain reimbursement for FEMA-eligible costs. ‘Vermonters have responded to this disaster with determination, tenacity and hard work,’ said Governor Shumlin.  ‘It is in large part due to the indomitable spirit of Vermonters that our recovery is going so well.  All recovery is local and this package will help ensure that our communities have the support they need.’ ###last_img read more
