Reed Mathis (Billy & the Kids) has plotted a special one-night-only presentation of Phish’s Gamehendge rock opera. The event will take place on Monday, April 17 at the Ivy Room in Albany, Calif., after the Vermont foursome’s upcoming gig at The Greek. 

The evening has been dubbed The Gamehedge Variation and will see Mathis on guitar, performing alongside his former Tea Leaf Green bandmate, Scott Ranger, who will hold down the drum kit during the one-off event. 

The bill also includes ALO’s Steve Adams on bass and Jambase founder, Andy Gadiel, offering the story’s narration in its entirety. Rounding out the list of players is Undermine’s Benji Eisen, who will add improvisational storytelling to the mix. 

In a press release, Mathis made mentioned that the performance will be played in a jam-heavy style, “NOT note-for-note.” The artist’s approach is synonymous with his larger body of work, particularly his Electric Beethoven project which takes classical arrangements and morphs them into palatable dance music. The April 17 event will honor the saga’s composer, Trey Anastasio.

The impending show is part of the “After Phish” late-night programming at the Ivy Room in Albany, Calif., located minutes from the Greek Theatre in Berkeley where Phish will perform earlier in the evening.
