Dear concert going friends,
I know you and I go way back (hope all is well!) and it has been a long time since we have talked, but there is just something extremely exciting that has built inside of me about what is going to happen this weekend at THE GORGE for the 2012 version of the Sasquatch!

The Gorge - George, WA
Words/Photos by Phishbeard
On the 5th and 6th of August 2011, the Gorge was once again blessed with the presence of Phish. Phans from all over America congregated for one of the most magical weekends in recent Phishtory. The weather was superb and the campgrounds were packed by the time my crew arrived at the Gorge to set up camp and prefunk for the Friday night show. We had numerous cars of people as part of ...

Note: As with part one, this was written on the trek from Spokane to Los Angeles. Pardon any and all typos.
For night two we decided to start the first set up on the lawn so I could see the sun set/get a different appreciation for the venue. Phish came out just as the sun snuck behind the ridge and played the worst set of the weekend much to my delight. It's not that the music ... Read More

Where I usually write reviews from my computer, we will make an exception and type this from gate B5 at the Spokane Int'l Airport (That's my way to say excuse typos/grammar cause I typed this on an iphone). You see, this is not a typical Reverend Justito confession. This is a dream come true because I can now say I have seen Phish throw down at the Gorge.
99% of the time you hit the ... Read More

Sasquatch! Festival – Friday 5/27/11 – The Gorge Amphitheatre
Review, pictures and video from thenaturalstoner and Phishbeard
Since we have 4 days worth of Sasquatch! content to post, I thought it would be best to put each days items up on ConcertConfessions.com individually. Friday was the opening night of the Festival, and it was a super rocking good time. There were less bands on Friday, and we were testing out our camera access limits, so the Friday content isn’t as voluminous as the rest ... Read More
