Phish – The Ultimate “Meatstick” NYE @ Madison Square Garden

2:10 am by

Well, two days after ringing in the New Year, and I’m just finally getting over my hangover. Maybe it’s because I spent the entire first day of the year laughing over an assortment of cocktails throughout the day with some of best people ever. Now, still a bit foggy, I sit here at my computer reading through all accounts of the many New Year’s Eve musical celebrations I missed throughout the country. There was one show that I payed attention to throughout the night, though, and that was Phish’s big gig at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. Shortly after the midnight hour, I checked Twitter to see how my favorite band celebrated, and all it said was “Meatstick” followed by the traditional “Auld Lang Syne” into the Eric Clapton-popularized, JJ Cale-penned “After Midnight,” a very similar choice of setlist as their famed Big Cypress Millennium show which found them playing a near 8-hour set from before midnight up until the sunrise. The simple tweet saying “Meatstick” couldn’t explain less what actually happened the other night. The video tells all…


This might be one of the best things I’ve ever seen in my life. So pissed I wasn’t in attendance!
