This past October, Phish embarked on a Fall tour for the first time since 2014. The run kicked off in Charleston, SC on Friday, October 14th, and after a two-night stand, they moved to Jacksonville, FL for their first ever performance in the city. The band stuck to their mantra of “never miss a sunday show”, delivering an high-energy performance at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena, leaving an impression on excited Northern Florida fans who’ve been waiting decades for the band to come to their city.The show was marked by many fun moments, with “Stash” and the “Mike’s Groove” pairing making appearances in the first set, new fan-favorite composition “Petrichor” was trotted out, and “Piper” and “Run Like An Antelope” rounded out a super-charged second set. Phish even busted out “The Ballad Of Curtis Loew” as a tribute to hometown heroes Lynard Skynyrd. Perhaps the highlight of the show, however, was the second-set-opening “Crosseyed and Painless”. The twenty minute segment featured sinister improvisation out of the Talking Heads’ classic that eventually dissolved into the funky rocker “Steam”, which of course contained “still waiting” quotes from “Crosseyed and Painless”.Now, we can re-live this excellent performance, thanks to LazyLightning55a, who recently uploaded super clear 4K ultra HD footage from this great moment in Jacksonville. The video is below, for your viewing pleasure.
Harrington said at least that offered a modicum of hope on Monday. Open week produces mixed feelings for Harrington as a decade ago his father died and he pulled out of the event at St Andrews and last year coach Bob Torrance passed away. However, Harrington is too professional to allow anything other than competing for the championship to affect him. “I’m not going to try to get emotionally involved in any shape or form,” he said. The Irishman carded a seven-under 65 to leap to 10 under and give him a realistic chance of capturing his fourth major as the championship heads for Monday finish. His previous best single-round score was back-to-back 66s on the weekend to win the 2008 US PGA, having also made that score at the Open way back in 2001. Press Association Harrington’s first win in seven years came at March’s Honda Classic, which also needed an extra day, but it is his memories of getting the job done on the final day of a major that he will be looking to use on Monday. “I always wanted to shoot 65 on the Sunday of an Open – obviously there’s another round to go tomorrow,” he said. “I’ll be certainly telling myself that I know what I’m doing and I’ve done it before and I’ll be using it to help myself for sure, having done it twice before. “Clearly things were going well for me today but I didn’t want to look up (to the scoreboard) and see somebody getting away and be disappointed. “When things are going well you might as well just keep your head down and keep going. “There’s no point in looking around and getting distracted. “I didn’t look until I finished off on 18.” The 144th championship at St Andrews is shaping up to be one of the closest in a long time with the top of the leaderboard tightly packed. Two-time Open champion Padraig Harrington’s lowest round in a major shot him into contention for another Claret Jug and he believes his experience could be a significant factor on the final day.
