With fall tour comes yet another Amazing AJ Masthay print!
The first of a few prints he is releasing for this tour is “The Arena”. Although you could call it The Times Union Center, The Pepsi Arena, or everyone’s favorite, the original, The Knick(erbocker) Arena. For this poster, just for brevity’s sake, AJ sticks “The Arena”
With 8 colors total, this is a poster with a smaller edition of 75. The ink on these is extra thick, so it looks like that super shiny, raised off the paper, stink that runs up your nostrils thick. Good stuff.
Masthay is looking to convey a sense of autumn, hence the wooded path. This poster more than others in his collection tells a story, but what is happening in the story is up to your imagination. What is the book in the gnome’s hands? The HPB? PhanArt? Dianetics? ? Is he walking towards you or away from you? Is he being chased? These questions are best pondered and answered by picking up the poster. Order info below.
- ‘Terror Gnome’, by AJ Masthay
These prints will be onsale at 12 Noon EST, Tuesday, November 17, 2009. Prints are limited to 2 per person. you can pick them up at www.masthaystudios.com
AJ has at least one more edition that he will be releasing before the tour starts. Keep an eye out for another announcement shortly. Feel free to contact AJ at aj@masthaystudios with any questions.

This art is PhanArt Recommended, PhanArt Approved
A few weeks ago, we came up with some good hotels to check out that are near downtown, but not all the way on Wolf Road. here is an additional hotel that is very close to The Knick (aka The Times Union Center, but please don’t call it that) and affordable for a few fans to share a room.
also, the hotel is managed by a Phish phan, so file this one under ‘lookin out for the fellow phan’
$109-119 each night
A 6 minute drive to The Knick – at this late in the game, you really cant beat that folks!
Safe travels to the hometown of PhanArt!
So you are coming to PhanArt’s hometown and want to know where to party down after the show? Well, courtesy of jambase.com, we have a few shows that might be of interest to you, with some thoughts on each.
The Heavy Pets at Jillian’s
Upsides – Jillian’s is 3 blocks north on S. Pearl, the same street The Knick is on. The Heavy Pets are awesome, which is a very big upside
Downside – typically SUNY kids and douchebags go to Jillian’s – this has continued to be the case for a decade+. On the upside to this is that its Thanksgiving, so most of the aforementioned Dbags are home for the holidays, and the stage is on the main floor, making it easier to enjoy yourself and avoid the downside.
This event is co-sponsored by Phan Food, the upcoming Phish Cookbook! Come on down, submit a recipe of your choice, and enjoy some great music and post-show revelry! check out PhanFood.com
Think of Dave and Buster’s, but with college Dbags
Zach Deputy at Red Square
If you dont know Zach Deputy, you should make an effort to see him one of the two nights he has booked at Red Square. It is a great venue, all of 2 blocks away from The Knick (heading towards the Hudson) and full of tasty beers and always a good amount of hot mamas. Zach D is a little bit Keller Williams, some Jack Johnson and Ryan Montbleau, and a WHOLE Lotta Funk.
Room outside to chill, smoke, chat
Timbre Coup at Dublin Underground (formerly Savannah’s)
this show will be solid, good untzing to check out, and Savannah’s is all of a block up from The Knick (we do not refer to it by those other names) ON Pearl Street. You can get there in less than a minute, barring any people being in your way. Definitely close though.
Robo-France 29, Valentines (upstairs)
Albany’s own Justin Schultz and Josh Breden are the force behind this fast-growing Jam-rock band, with a hint of Alternative/Country/Punk. Formed in 2007, their hits include Carl Winslow, Man Without a Plan, Good Luck Train, and The Fall, as well as covers of Grateful Dead, Dylan, Pink Floyd, Rush and Hank Williams I (yes, the 1st)
This is HIGHLY recommended to go to for two big reasons: 1) the show is at Valentines, a classic Albany venue, and the band that moe. started out at when they moved to Albany, not to mention Ominous Seapods and Conehead Buddha and numerous other bands from the mid-90s. 2) Robo-France 29 is the next band to come from this great Albany legacy of producing some amazing bands.
Dates via www.phish.com/fall2009
We finally have confirmation of Fall Tour, with alot of expected dates, and two that are head scratchers, but either way, its another couple states and a few cities to bring our traveling economic stimulus package to.
PHISH FALL TOUR 2009
11.18.09 Cobo Arena, Detroit, MI
Ok, random, but Detroit needs Phish more than anyone these days. Please, wear patchwork kevlar to the show folks.
11.20.09 U.S. Bank Arena, Cincinnati, OH
11.21.09 U.S. Bank Arena, Cincinnati, OH
Cincy is producing some decent shows, as those in Feb ’03 will attest. Let’s work the magic some more.
11.22.09 War Memorial at Oncenter, Syracuse, NY
When we got confirmation on this show this past weekend up in Syracuse, the first though was ‘that seems a bit odd’, especially since the War Memorial only seats 8,000. The first show since fall of 1994 at the War Memorial will be a doozy. Prepare yourselves Syracuse Orange, prepare.
Prediction: Otto sit in on ‘Big Orange Furry Creature from Mars’
11.24.09 Wachovia Center, Philadelphia, PA
11.25.09 Wachovia Center, Philadelphia, PA
Two nights before Halloween in Philly? Sure. At any rate, it will be a great holiday season for the nitrous mafia
11.27.09 Times Union Center, Albany, NY
11.28.09 Times Union Center, Albany, NY
HOMETOWN SHOWS!!!! Granted, living here, we knew this was happening for a few months now, but confirmation is still a tasty beverage.
There will be great post shows at Red Square (Zach Deputy) and Jillians (Raisinhead), as well as bars that stay open till FOUR AM.
Get yourself a decent hotel by reading here
11.29.09 Cumberland County Civic Center, Portland, ME
Ok Maine, thats cool. Good ’99 show there. I’ll take a day to rest on that one.
12.02.09 Madison Square Garden, NYC
12.03.09 Madison Square Garden, NYC
12.04.09 Madison Square Garden, NYC
Another amazing 3 night run at MSG! Cant say much more about this one
12.05.09 John Paul Jones Arena, Charlottesville, VA
A bit surprising to see this one, but it had the earliest confirmation. The UVA kids never had a headier crowd at JPJ

Get those orders in folks!
Phish is playing in Albany 11/27 and 28, and we have a little issue with hotels in Albany – there arent many near the venue, and the ones that are within walking distance are more-than-likely sold out by now. These include the Crown Plaza, Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn. In the past, friends have gotten hotels, only to find out they are very far away from The Knick (currently the Times Union Center, but dont call it that, please) and that cabs in Albany take forever to sometimes show up for a pickup.
So as a courtesy to Phish fans coming into my hometown for Phish this Thanksgiving, 3 hotels that are close to the venue, a short drive to downtown, and as of this posting, had vacancy at decent rates.
You can tell ’em PhanArt sent ya, but this isnt quid pro quo. We just want you to be cozy. And not in no-mans land
