Ian Cross Superball IX print

This print is an 11×17 Phan Art poster by Ian Cross celebrating Superball 9.

From the artist:

“The idea came to me when thinking about the word Superball, I thought to myself that our solar system contains the largest comprehensible Superballs of them all, eight planets plus our sun=Superball 9.  It’s printed on thick super glossy photo stock. It’s based on an original watercolor and acrylic painting done by me, Ian Cross.”

Yes, he’s got balls that Adam Davidoff. Shiny Hard Superballs. For Sale. Adam designed the Super Ball IX “Superball” to commemorate this summer’s festival in Watkins Glen, NY over Fourth of July Weekend.

The Super Ball IX “Superball’ (999) which debuted in May 2011

The Super Ball IX ‘Superball’ is a jumbo sized superball conceived to commemorate the Super Ball IX Festival in Watkins Glen, NY.  The Super Ball IX “Superball” was designed with two things in mind:  to mimic the color scheme incorporated into the logo advertising the festival, while capturing the patriotic vibe of Independence Day Weekend.
Adam’s favorite Phish memorabilia are quirky items like the 1994 NYE Ping Pong Ball, the 1994 & 1995 Phish
Halloween Chocolate Coins and the 2010 NYE Hot Dog.  His hope was to create a unique item in this vein. The beauty of the Super Ball IX ‘Superball’ lies in its simplicity; the picture tells the story.
The Superball IX ‘Superball’ measures approx 2″  in diameter.  They were produced in a limited run of 999 and are $9.99 each plus $3.01 shipping and handling.  Get one for everyone in your crew gearing up for what will prove to be the highlight of the Summer of 2011! Adams balls are ready to ship now and he will have them on the lots of Bethel Woods, Pine Knob, Blossom & Riverbend.

‘Inaugural Ball’ by Amy Pedatella (Excerpt from PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish)

In celebration of PhanArt’s 2nd Anniversary of being published, this week we are sharing excerpts from select articles written exclusively for PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish. To read more of this article and other great reviews of the Phish community and unique style of art, pick up the book here

An excerpt from ‘Inaugural Ball’ by Amy Pedatella, originally published in PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish (2009, Allegra)

The year was 1996 and I was quickly becoming a Phish fan. As winter ended, the band made the announcement that they would be hosting a weekend festival in northern New York. The show was slated to be called The Clifford Ball and scheduled for the end of summer, without hesitation I was “in” and anxiously awaited ticket sales. Talking this phenomenon up with my friends, I found two eager participants. We purchased our tickets, made preliminary preparations and awaited mid-August.

Submitted by Noah Phence for PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish

Apparently my friends were not as into Phish as I was, and purchased H.O.R.D.E. Tour tickets for the Friday of that same weekend. Wanting to forgo the H.O.R.D.E I was unable to find any takers for their tickets. I was left no choice but to attend the show at Randall’s Island, New York with them and immediately following travel directly to The Ball. Halfway through the Spin Doctors set, my friend decided to pass out and land in First-Aid after ingesting who knows what?

Always the optimist I thought, ‘she’ll shake it off.’ This is the point when my other friend at the show decided to piss in my Cheerios and pull the plug on the whole operation, taking our other friend home.

The H.O.R.D.E. was had, the hour was zero, and I found myself under the Triborough Bridge with three Clifford Ball tickets, a station wagon and nobody up for the mission. I had to beg and plead with anyone who will listen in a futile attempt to gain candidates. I had no choice but to go it alone. My rather straightedge brother had been at the H.O.R.D.E. also and got wind of my antics. Being the supportive older brother that he is, my brother refused to let me travel alone and decided to join me. He and I had seen Phish about three weeks prior in Rome, Italy, as part of an audience of less than 200 as they opened for Santana. He would have liked people to believe that he was going to escort me, but I knew better. He had experienced

Phish announces Festival 8 schedule, Sunday AM acoustic set, still no fall tour dates

Phish announced the schedule for Festival 8 today. 2 sets on friday @ 7:30 and 10, 3 on saturday, the first set at 3pm, the Halloween set starting at 7:30, and again at 10pm. Sunday has a first ever acoustic set at Noon, surely created to get the folks on the fence to jump off on the Indio side. The last two sets are at 5:30 and 8:30, provided plenty of time to pre-game for the night sets.

So an acoustic set? im thinking we’ll get Talk, Train Song, Billy Breathes, Perhaps Stealing Time from the Faulty Plan, and my bust-out call, ACOUSTIC ARMY!

make it happen boys!
