Phish: Sample In A Jar

It’s been a little while since I posted. Been so busy opening our DC jewelry buying office that I can’t find the time to write – but there’s nothing worse than a blog with no recent posts, right? So I want to share a quick vid that I watch often for your enjoyment. Be back [...]

Phish Boardwalk Hall 10-30-10

Went to see Phish at Boardwalk Hall for their Halloween run. If you’ll remember, I saw Phish a year and a half ago at Merriweather Post and the show was not great so I was down on the band. Check it out in my post, Summer Concert Review. Well this past summer was a killer [...]

Phish Merriweather Post Tomorrow Night

Another year has gone by since I’ve seen Phish. I have to say that the show last year at Merriweather was disappointing, but I’m giving them another try hoping they break out some old school stuff. I reviewed the show in this post, “Summer Concert Review”. Here’s the kinda thing I’m looking for: Wish me [...]

Summer Concert Review

As the late, great Jerry Garcia said, “Summer time’s come and gone my oh my.”  And this summer went fast.  I hit a few shows though, both local and national acts, and the results were mixed.  I’m gonna start in the spring. March – Blues Traveler Yeah I folded and thought that they would be [...]

Was It For This My Life I Sought?

Tomorrow night I got the 2nd row center at Phish.  I’ve been seeing these guys since 1991 but have not seen them in about 10 years.  The big venue/stadium tours weren’t for me, but I am pumped to see the boys tear it up tomorrow night.  Plus I am meeting up with a lot of [...]

Going to The Allman Brothers at The Beacon

I am getting so psyched to see one of my favorite bands, The Allman Brothers, at The Beacon Theatre in NYC tomorrow night. I usually go every year and meet up with my boys from college, but this year I’m taking the wife for my 10 year anniversary. Wow, time flies. Well, I’m a happy [...]

Phish Reunion

So Phish is reuniting in Hampton, VA this weekend.  I used to see Phish back in college – first in 1990 at The Bayou in DC (which has since closed) and then at the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta.  Both very small venues.  In Atlanta, you could walk right up to Fishman and then walk back [...]

Gold and Platinum, Big Blue Diamond – Watch These Kids Play Phish

It’s been a while since I posted, but that’s a good thing because we are busy selling (and buying) diamonds. Now is the time.  We have a lot of items on sale, and we are making some great jewelry buys from customers coming in to our store, and from all over the country.  We are [...]

Warren Haynes is Better with The Allman Brothers

Warren Haynes in my opinion is one of the best out there. I wrote about him earlier and posted a video of him playing with Trey from Phish. So I was really stoked to see Warren Haynes with Gov’t Mule last week. I have been watching him with The Allman Brothers Band for a long [...]
