Get Your Phix
After a long day, there is just something about going to see a jam band that this little Laister loves. Trade in those hipster duds, layered clothes, clunky jewelry, tucked-in boots for a little cordoroy and Birks. Drink a micro-beer. Check out all the boys in their Patagonia and Ben & Jerry’s long-sleeved T-shirts. Close your eyes and just sway to the music man. At least that was the scene Thursday night at the Phix show at The Knitting Factory. As in get your PHIX of PHISH. Yes a cover band, one of the best and very much worth your time. Who knew there were so many hippies with one-hitters in Hollywood? Brought out the Vermonter right from my little heart.
Total pluses for the Knitting Factory are that there can be up to three different kind of shows going on and Thursday night was no exception. Green Day wannabees were in the AlternaKnit and a DJ had an early set in the main room. If you’re up for adventure, take on the easy $7 parking next store (keep this in mind for any Roosevelt Hotel, Kodak Theater rendez-vous) and check out their schedule.
