Update: The winners of the contest are…… Nicholas Stock, for his tale post Big Cypress. ‘My favorite Phish NYE memory was at Big Cypress. As we were leaving after the almost 8 hour set. A large group got to a T in the road and asked, “Where do we go now?” She was referring to how she got back to her camp but I heard it as WHERE DO WE GO NOW? A booming question for the rest of my life. I’m still trying to answer it.’. Bryon Wooten is the runner up with “Favorite nye moment was the return of the hotdog phish rode in on 12/31/10 tossing out meatsticks while the stage was filled with people singing the same. #occupymsg”

From Salad Jones:

I just got done making some womens baby-doll style, subtle and not so subtle Party Time shirts. On the front is a group of balloons with an oh so familiar design and on the back bottom in nice big printing is PARTY TIME! The sizes run small, so my wife who usually wears a medium wears a large of these. The small would be great for a younger phan!

‘Punch You in the NYE’ poster from Franky Scaglione

From Artist and teacher, Franky Scaglione:

Phish is coming back to New York City to ring in (yet) another new year with another spectacular four-night run at the legendary Madison Square Garden. As the shows approach quickly, I am happy to introduce my newest screen print to celebrate the hoopla and hysteria of the main events.

The Garden is home to some of the most illustrious fights in boxing history, and I wanted to create a parallel to the nine-rounds of Phish looming to close 2011 and welcome 2012. Punch You In The NYE is a salute to the late great Joe Frazier and the monumental Fight Of The Century with Muhammad Ali in 1971 at none other than, Madison Square Garden in New York, NY.

PYITN is a limited edition screen print run of 125 on archival 100lb Royal Complements Haute Red paper (18″ x 24″), all signed and numbered. Please contact me if you are interested in pre-ordering a print. I’ll take requests for numbers on a first come-first serve basis, and will ship pre-orders BEFORE I leave for New York (until December 20). Orders placed after December 20 will ship on January 5. Price is $35 including shipping/handling, reinforced postertube, etc. to anywhere in the US/Canada. Prints will be available for $25 on the streets of Manhattan, circling the Garden each of the four nights as well.
