Surrender to the Flow Magazine launches Kickstarter drive

Surrender to the Flow published their first issue in the Fall of 1998 for Phish tour and has continued to be a staple of tour ever since. From the tours of 1.0, Oysterhead in 2001 and a whopping SIX issues in 2009, totaling 14 issues total in 3.0 and 33 issues over the past 14 years, Surrender to the Flow is the best information you can get on lot, with great articles, stories and info that fans need while on the road.
STTF has grown to publishing 8,000+ copies per tour and is run masterfully by Christy Articola as editor, working with an all volunteer staff made up of members from the Phish community. Christy plans to keep publishing Surrender as long as the band keeps playing!

In an effort to digitize all past copies of Surrender to the Flow, Christy has found a fantastic digital magazine software called 3D Issue. Through a onetime purchase of the software, Surrender to the Flow will be able to feature pdf’s of all issues, including new issues as well. A hosting site is already secured so the next step is raising the money for the cost of 3D Issue.

A Kickstarter campaign has started so that Phish fans can support Surrender to the Flow’s digitizing effort and like with all Kickstarter drives, you can get some great benefits in return!

This Week in PhanArt History: Winter 2003

New from PhanArt in 2011 is our weekly Friday Feature: This Week in PhanArt History. Each piece of art we share is from days of Phish in the past, typically from the 1.0 and 2.0 eras, something of note that fans of all ages can appreciate that is featured in the book PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish, with some commentary on the piece by PhanArt Pete. If there is a piece of art or genre of PhanArt you would like to see, leave a suggestion in the comments below.

Winter 2003 was all about the rebirth and renewal of Phish. After 4 shows to ring in 2003, the band went coast to coast in just over 2 weeks, taking some fortunate fans on a whirlwind tour around the country before wrapping up things until July. Fans who were artists or creative enough to make something Phish related found themselves in Disneyland, with 9 separate stops to incorporate into their art.

Ryan Kerrigan’s collection of show posters from 2003 is long sold-out, but his Nassau 2003 was just one example of the great art made for each of the venues. In an edition of 100 prints, its classic Kerrigan.

This shirt was submitted to PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish by Christine and Frank Cortazzo. Their collection was one of the major contributors to the creation of PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish and the PhanArt Archives.

This last piece was drawn by Drew Suto for the Winter 2003 edition of Surrender to the Flow. Drew’s drawings capture neatly the regional personality of venue stops with ease.
