Colorado-based Phish tribute Phix is pleased to announce their New Year's run of shows and subsequent West Coast tour in January. The band is extremely excited about the month of music that will take them from coast to coast and lots of spots in between. With a recently beefed-up intelligent light rig and crowds that have grown steadily since Phish called it quits last year, Phix shows, and their constantly changing setlists, have been getting the attention of many a phan. The band feels that after four years of playing together the music is really taking on a life of its own and most fans would agree that the band has hit their stride.

Phix will play four shows in three cities, the first being on December 27 at the Double Door in Chicago. From there the band heads to the coast and plays Grape Street Philadelphia on December 29 and New York City's Lion's Den on December 30 and 31. Both nights in New York City will feature three sets. On the 30 they will tackle the full Gamehendge saga for one set and on the 31 they will recreate a classic Phish New Year's Eve setlist. Both nights will go very late and links to buy tickets can be found at the Phix Tour Dates page.

The first West Coast tour in over two and a half years will start in Salt Lake City on January 19 and stop in Crystal Bay, NV (North Lake Tahoe) before landing in California for a special show at San Francisco's 12 Galaxies on Saturday, January 21. From there it's town to town down the coast all the way to San Diego before capping off the tour with the first-ever Phix show in Las Vegas on Saturday, January 28. Since the band doesn't make it out that way too often they encourage phans to get it while they can!
