Pink Talking Fish Plays All Phish Set At Ardmore Music Hall


Pink Talking Fish performed an all Phish second set during their concert at Ardmore Music Hall in Ardmore, Pennsylvania on Friday night. The set contained classics as well as PTF’s take on some Phish rarities.

The Pink Floyd/Talking Heads/Phish tribute band kicked things off with “Simple” followed by “Road To Nowhere.” Next up, “Fearless” led into “Prince Caspian” and “Hunger Strike” before returning to “Caspian” and “Fearless.” The band then segued into “Slippery People” before a slower, funky “Llama” ramped up to its normal speed. After “Pigs (Three Different Ones),” PTF closed out the first frame with a “Nothing But Flowers”/”Party Time” mashup.

Pink Talking Fish kicked off the all Phish set with “Tweezer” into “Maze.” “Colonel Forbin’s Ascent” came next before the band jammed into “2001” and then delivered “Fly Famous Mockingbird” in earnest. An “Alumni Blues”/Letter To Jimmy Page” sandwich followed. PTF closed out the set with “Run Like An Antelope” into “Cities” and back into “Antelope” with the reprise containing elements of Sly And The Family Stone’s “Thank you Falletinme Be Miceself” (perhaps a nod to opening act and Sly cover band Darla), Peter Frampton’s “Do You Feel Like We Do” and the band singing “run like a jazz cat out of control.”

PTF retook the stage for an encore of “Shine A Light” and “Tweezer Reprise.” Watch video of “Mockingbird” and listen to the entire show captured by taper Rich Stoler below:
