Surprise Phish Festival 8 Soundcheck

In addition to a couple of jams, "Undermind," the forthcoming Party Time track "Liquid Time," and a Trey Anastasio Band song ("Gone"), Phish performed songs by MGMT ("Kids") and Yes ("Star Trooper") during their surprise Thursday soundcheck prior to Festival 8, suggesting that neither the former Oracular Spectacular nor the latter's The Yes Album during Saturday's Halloween-costume set. But who the hell knows? According to Benjy Eisen at Spinner, eight campgrounds at the site are named after the final eight albums left on the festival website: Hunky Dory (David Bowie), Kid A (Radiohead), Electric Ladyland (Jimi Hendrix Experience), Purple Rain (Prince), The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway (Genesis), Exile on Main Street (Rolling Stones), Larks' Tongues in Aspic (King Crimson), and Oracular Spectacular (MGMT). Stuck as I am in Brooklyn, my money's on Exile but my heart's in Lamb.
