Festival 8 is back in all of its full glory on the big screen! Today the cities were finally announced where you can go and see Festival 8 in 3D as performed by Phish on Halloween Weekend 2009. Cities are listed here and at some select theatres you can already purchase advance tickets. The film is scheduled to open on April 30th and run for one week so be sure to see it while you can. Next up we've got a ticket check, it appears that Great Woods has finally "sold out" as we were no longer able to pull tickets. I guess everyone will just have to wait for the inevitable rerelease that's sure to happen. We also perform a sanity check and see what prices tickets are going for. Every show that isn't sold out is going for under face and currently Telluride holds the top price at around $700 a ticket. No surprises, but we'll keep an eye out and let the listeners know what's going on each week.
Our friends over at Glide Magazine did a rundown of the "10 Hardest Phish Tickets" and for the most part we agree with their lists. There are some discrepancies and debatable picks but over all we agree. You can check out the list here.
Speaking of movies, turns out The Grateful Dead have another movie coming out. Got to keep the merchandising machine running, Bobby needs some new shorts! Jambase has a great write up providing the details about where and when you can see the movie in theatres as well as details on when you can buy the movie.
Our old friend Noob Laura is back on the episode this week and she brings with her a book review of Headz. This book is about the lot scene and about different characters and their experiences getting to the lot and on the lot. We aren't sure how we feel about the book but if you're interested you can find it on their website but you'll have to take a listen to find out Laura's review.
Last and certainly least (in some of our opinions) is the strange Hulaween announcement of SCI and tDB playing in Hampton, VA. We've got our predictions of how the flatbrim, untz, glitter, hula-hoops, and pinwheels night is going to turn out and it's not looking good. If you're bored off your ass or just want to kangfirm we aren't making this up and they really are planning to do this check out the info.
Thanks everybody for listening, we'll see you next week on lot!
