Phish singing the National Anthem

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Every morning at 6am we have been playing the National Anthem. We're pretty sure we can do one a day until the end of the year without repeating.

Today we're happy to bring you Phish, in what is surprisingly a fine example of excellent harmony. It's not crazy and swirling and show-offey, it's happy, proud, and solid.

Not at all what one would expect from a bunch of ice cream eating long haired hippies.

Sit back, relax, or stand and sing along, to the "Star Spangled Banner".
