Exclusive Video: Trey Anastasio Talks Phish's Burlington Days On NewsHour

ANASTASIO REVEALS ONE OF THE KEYS TO PHISH'S SUCCESS
IN TEASER OF TOMORROW'S PBS NEWSHOUR FEATURE ON BAND

PBS's long-running evening news program, NewsHour, will broadcast a feature on Phish front man Trey Anastasio tomorrow night. The broadcast comes on the eve of Phish starting their summer tour, and 30th year since forming in 1983, at Darling's Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, ME.

Anastasio sat for an interview with NewsHour Senior Correspondent Jeffrey Brown in Washington, D.C. back in May. Among the topics Trey discussed were Phish's rise to fame, the group's unorthodox fanbase and his influences. You can watch the feature on tomorrow night's episode of PBS NewsHour and then NewsHour producers will post the entire 30 minute conversation with Jeffrey Brown online after the broadcast on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. EDT.

The NewsHour team has kindly allowed us to exclusively premiere a portion of the Anastasio feature right here on JamBase. In this clip, Trey talks about how Phish was in the right place at the right time because Burlington had more bars per capita than any other town in America.

JamBase will feature wall-to-wall Phish coverage this summer, as we'll be the home of Scotty B's The Skinny musical and statistical recaps for each show the band plays starting with Wednesday's tour opener.
