This will mark AGP's first foray into the world of digital downloads. It is expected that the April 3 show will be available within one week after the performance.
• The band's 4/20 appearance in Las Vegas will be called a "Phish hangover" show of sorts. People going out to Las Vegas for Phish are being encouraged to stick around for a few extra days for 4/20 in Sin City.
• AGP will make their debut in San Diego, Los Angeles, Los Osos, San Francisco, and Santa Barbara. Five shows in five days is the only way to break into California.
