The season three finale has landed and IT is great! JW and Skinny explore the second day of the IT festival from 2003. The season wraps up with the fellas discussing summer tour, music festivals, concert wear, and hints at next seasons theme. Get after IT and enjoy! Thanks to all of our listeners for a great season!
In the penultimate episode of season 3 of Stub Me Down, JW pulls a recent show during which he experienced some of the best versions of tunes he has ever seen. Skinny was there too (for most of this one) and experienced similar thoughts with several songs. While it was not quite Trey Band, it was also not quite Phish. Perhaps a third plane of existence was created on this night, and perhaps Dezron Douglas was the key to unlocking this new dimension.
Skinny pulls the stub for Episode 8 of Stub Me Down Season 3, but JW throws him for a loop with his reaction to this show from 2013. Skinny's affinity for this one is not met by dubs, who takes an unusually contrarian (as much as possible) view of the setlist. Still, the fellas find consensus on a few tunes as they feature their own "Odd Couple" tease.
JW and Skinny take a trip up to the Star Pavilion in Hershey Park. The fellas discuss the pit, a parking lot for a venue, and pioneers in music and chocolate! JW stubs Skinny down on an incredible Phil and Friends show featuring the Quintet from 2002. Skinny even does some research and JW runs down some wild stats from the PhilZone!
Skinny and JW welcome in Bravo TV's Below Deck star Ed Lucas to Stub Me Down for a very special episode 6 conversation! From luxury yachts to tug boats, Ed shares details of his professional life, much to the chagrin of Skinny. But despite Skinny's lack of interest in boats, he suffers through Ed and JW geeking out about all things nautical and is rewarded with a great conversation about Ed's first Phish show back in 1996. We are everywhere!
Skinny and JW get together with fellow podcaster and friend Brian Weinstein of Attendance Bias to relive the April New Years Eve run from Madison Square Garden! From the undersea escapade to the structure of the sets, the fellas cover each night and highlight their favorite (and less favorite) moments from New York. Thanks Brian! Always a great time to collaborate!
JW and Skinny have the longest conversation ever on Stub Me Down with Matt "Phammertime" Campbell! Phammer talks about the Twitterverse, Wook plus, and the community organization PHRE. Eventually, the fellas discuss Phammer's 2.0 stub down, and it's a good one!
We Are Everywhere! Author Peter Conners joins JW and Skinny in Episode 3, Season 3 of Stub Me Down to discuss his new book Merch Table Blues and his take on the early Phish scene through the lens of a superior show from the 1991 Horns Tour. Peter and the fellas chat about the underbelly of the jamband scene, lament the gradual disappearance of ticket stubs, and of course explore some nerdery stats from the time period. Check out Peter's new book wherever books are available or from www.peterconners.com!
Skinny stubs JW down in a return to DC to talk about a Grateful Dead show from 1993! The fellas discuss the almost end of an era, stadium shows, and yes, even a stolen car. Find out how much accordion you can take and whether or not Bobby was plugged into the sound board!
Welcome back to Stub Me Down as we kick off the third season with an all out blitz! Skinny and JW welcome in Jake Jolivette, the infamous Fox Sports producer responsible for (among other things) programming music for NFL, College Football, and NASCAR events! Jake stubs the fellas down on a show from the Fabulous LA Forum while sharing his creative process incorporating your favorite band's music into the mainstream!
