Phish wrapped up the first leg of their 2010 summer tour with two smoking shows down south in Atlanta Georgia. Leg one of the recently reunited bands tour featured three key themes: Great new songs (Dr. Gabel is my favorite so far), crazy rare bust outs (including Alumni Blues/Letter To Jimmy Page and the first Fuck Your Face since 1987) and the craziest amount of random covers since 1988 (The Beatles, Neutral Milk Hotel and Tom Waits have all had their songs woven into Phish sets this summer).
But what happens when Phish busts out a rare song that that always features a cover in the middle? Well, for the folks lucky enough to have at ticket for the July 4th throwdown in the ATL, were treated to the narrative Phish classic “Harpua.” The story of a boy and his cat, this Harpua is perhaps the angriest the band has ever performed – and features a rocking cover of the Rage Against The Machine classic “Killing In The Name.” For those who don’t care about the musical narration, and just want to hear the song, fast forward to 4:43 mark.
The second leg of Phish Summer Tour 2010 kicks off August 5th with a three night run at the intimate Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA. Look for coverage from all three nights from our very own Reverend Justito!
