Video Highlights From Mike Gordon 2017 Fall Tour


Last night Phish bassist Mike Gordon, finished a three-week fall tour with keyboardist Robert Walter, percussionist Craig Myers, guitarist Scott Murawski and drummer John Kimock. The 17-show run began at the Georgia Theatre in Athens on September 22 and concluded with Saturday’s second of two concerts at the Boulder Theater in Boulder, Colorado. Over the course of the tour Mike and his band focused on material from the recently-released OGOGO, debuted new covers and unveiled a wild original called “Trapezoidal Sunshine.”

Gordon also led his group through a pair of in-stores at record stores. Video of the quintet’s entire set at Syracuse’s Sound Garden surfaced quickly after the in-store. For this week’s installment of Sunday Cinema, let’s go beyond the Sound Garden set to take a look at fan-shot video footage featuring full songs or close to it from Mike Gordon’s 2017 fall tour:
