Pink Talking Fish NYE Announcement and Fenway Phish AfterParty

Article Contributed by Blooming Footprint | Published on Tuesday, July 9, 2019

Pink Talking Fish will ring in the New Year on their home turf of Boston MA at Paradise Rock Club. They have enlisted rising stars, The New Motif, to join in the experience.

This announcement comes off the heels of a hugely successful Phish Fenway AfterParty at House Of Blues where PTF performed an epic set filled with fun candy for Phish Phans. Some highlights included Slow Llama > Fast Llama, Piper with an extended intro that is now missing in current Phish versions, and a high-octane Sabotage encore that left the place roaring with energy.

PTF also honored their hometown by inviting up multiple guest musicians from the Boston local scene. Percussionist Brendan Tommaney from the group Bearly Dead joined the band on scattered songs throughout the night. Guitarist, Lyle Brewer, joined the band for an emotional rendition of ‘Wish You Were Here’ as well as Phish’s ‘Brother’ where he and Cal Kehoe soared together during the double guitar solo. Cory Schectman of The New Motif and Lee Ross provided horns for Little Feat’s Skin It Back. One of the highlights of the evening was vocalist Kit Holliday’s powerful performance for Great Gig In The Sky. All the guests joined in for a fun filled Burning Down The House to close the set.

Here is the full setlist from the PTF HOB Phish AfterParty:
