It is no secret at Oniracom that I am quite the Phish phanatic (for better or worse).  With that said, how can I allow this news to slip past our blog? 

The first 3D concert film experience, Phish 3D, features the boys (Trey, Mike, Page & Fishman) at their aptly named 8th one-band-music-festival, Festival 8.  This event took place over 3 days of Halloween weekend 2009 and includes a famous stunt of the bands’—performing a ‘costume album’ from front to back—this time they covered the Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main St.  I’m allowing this bit of press release and trailer speak for itself, although I do wonder if movie theaters will hire security, or turn a blind eye to any funny smells within the darkened theaters?

Press Release:

Phish 3D, a 3D concert experience, is opening nationwide on Friday, April 30th for an exclusive one week run.  The more than two hour movie, presented by Action 3D Productions in association with Network LIVE and Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp., highlights Phish’s Festival 8, a three-day, eight-set, 16-hour concert in the Southern California desert.

In advance of the nationwide roll-out, exclusive preview screenings will be shown in nine cities—Boston; Burlington, VT; Chicago; Denver; Houston; Los Angeles; New York; Raleigh/Durham, NC; and Washington, D.C.—on April 20th. In addition to experiencing this special screening, fans in attendance will take home a Phish 3D movie poster. The fully immersive music and visual experience, featuring state-of-the-art 3D technology, gives viewers the sense that they are not only at the event, but on stage with the band that Entertainment Weekly has called “the biggest cult band in America.” Phish 3D features fan favorites, never before seen cover songs, and intimate footage of the band backstage and in rehearsals.

Filmed in October 2009 at the band’s Festival 8, more than 40,000 devoted fans watched as Phish combined two of their most beloved traditions — the multi-day festival and the Halloween album “costume.”  The band’s highly anticipated “musical costumes” are concerts involving the performance of an entire album by another artist—in this case, Phish covered the Rolling Stones’ album Exile on Main St. Phish 3D also features songs from the band’s first ever full-length acoustic set, as well as performances taken from the six additional sets.
