Phish played its second of three shows at Broomfield, CO’s 1stBank Center Monday night. During their first set, the members of Phish debuted the new Mike Gordon song “What Things Seem” (the track also appears on Gordon’s new album Moss ). A night earlier the band also debuted the Amanda Green/Trey Anastasio original “My Problem Right There” at the same venue. In addition, The Vermont Quartet pulled out a cover of TV on the Radio’s “Golden Age.” Phish first played the song in Albany, NY last November.
“Sometimes I will just walk in after listening to something on the bus and say, ‘Fish have you heard this tune? Have you listened to TV on the Radio? They’re great,’” Anastasio told Relix this summer. “Next thing you know I’m at the computer looking up the lyrics and I will read them and go ‘this is a great song – oh man, I’d love to sing this song’ and then there’s a set up backstage, drums and stuff and the four of us will go over there and we’ll start playing it and if it sounds good, we’ll play it that night. It’s almost like a skill that you learn. And certain songs just fit, you know?”
