Mike Gordon: Two Full Shows On YouTube & The Egg


It's been over a year since Phish bassist Mike Gordon has performed publicly with his exceptional five-piece solo band, but we haven't forgotten about the group and are looking forward to their as-of-yet-unscheduled return.

Over the past few days we came across two outstanding full band shows from Mike's band that were uploaded by YouTuber Madpicken and are easily among the best videos of the group available on the site.

Both shows took place in Chicago, with the September 25th, 2009 performance taking place at the Park West and the November 18th, 2010 show going down at Lincoln Hall. We've compiled all the videos and the setlist from each night. Enjoy!
