TWoL 112: Better Bring a Buddy to Snuggle With.

Listen to Episode 112

This week on lot, Nick returned for a second consecutive show. And he even saw some Phish!  He recapped his experiences at Long Beach and nights one and two of Bill Graham just for you guys. We also tackled the webcast drama and the drama about phish editorials before we ran a quick ticket check for the rest of tour. Stay tuned to our twitter page for coverage of Alabama, Atlanta, Charlotte and Denver from Toonces and friends of the show @DanMar85 and @_Carini_.

The last few weeks also saw a number of Phish side projects announcements for the fall. Trey announced a short tour in support of his new album, which will be released on October 16th. Page will be playing two Halloween shows with the Meter Men right here in NYC. And Fishman will be playing three shows, also in the Big Apple, with Everyone Orchestra. Your move Cactus…

Steve and I were also excited about the just released Catskill Chill schedule, since we will both be hitting up that festival in Hancock, NY from September 7-9.  And we rounded out the show by looking at the recently announced Panic en la Playa which goes on sale tomorrow.

On a personal note, I would like to say Congrats to our two remaining OG TWoL hosts and founders, Steve and Nick (and all past and present TWoLers) as we celebrate our three year anniversary this week. Thanks to all of you who have listened, called in and raged with us at shows. Please call or email us your favorite TWoL memories, or suggestions for the future, or whatever you damn well feel like at 419.NO.WOOKS or And please stick around with us for the next three years!

Until next time, be well.

TWoL 47: Stuff White People Like

Listen to Episode 47

We’ve got a very special episode of TWoL for you! Our guest this week is Caroline McCarthy from CNET. She comes to us to “defend” her comments on the 404 podcast episode where OkCupid reveals what white people like or at least they post on their dating page they like. Turns out what white guys over 30 like is Phish. It could be because many of them missed out on chasing girls in their 20’s because they were too busy chasing Phish around the country. You be the judge!

In a classic Bros vs. Brahs showdown we also discuss the difference in the female presence between a DMB show and a Phish show. Honestly way more females are at DMB shows then a Phish show, I don’t think it’s really an argument there. The point of discussion may be more around why? Leave us a voicemail and let us know your opinion on why such diversity between females at a DMB and females at Phish. 419-NO-WOOKS is the number to call!

Technology has brought the world together and information at your finger tips. People are more active and connected then ever, point in case Facebook and twitter. With the availability and connections you can create so easily, practical uses are exploding. If you’re an iPhone user there are now two Phish apps available, Live Phish and iTour.phish. If you’re an Android user there is only one Phish related app at this time, you can find it here.

Don’t forget there’s still time to sign up for the Atlantic City, NJ Phish tweetup. You don’t have to be on twitter to RSVP, come join us! You can RSVP at this link.

Last but not least we run through some voicemails. This week is a little interesting, we received all different kinds of voicemails. One of which appears to have been someones one phone call from jail. Thanks for providing a lot update even though you were locked up! For more details you’ll have to listen to the podcast. Don’t forget everyone that leaves us a voicemail during this Fall Tour will be eligible to win a Touropoly set from this month’s sponsor

Thank you everyone for the support, and we’ll see you next week on lot!
