Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Mike Gordon

When: Sun., June 14, 8 p.m. 2015

The power dynamics within Phish have always been interesting. For the bulk of their run together, Trey ran the show -- which may or may not have played into the band’s impermanent 2004 split. Since then, and amid “Phish 3.0,” the guys have spent a lot of time touring and writing with solo bands and side projects -- the Mike Gordon Band being one that’s really come into its own. Here, Mike is the undisputed conductor. Last year’s Overstep teed up a particular psychedelic sound that was heard in more nascent forms on his earlier albums (see the melody in “Andelman’s Yard,” for instance). In tunes like “Ether” and the ubiquitous “Yarmouth Road,” Mike struts his songwriting chops. He’s grown into comfort at the helm of the ship -- taking charge in Phish’s jamming style and, here, developing a whole new sound entirely to his and his fans’ liking. (Sandy)
