Watch Full Show Footage Of Phish’s Instrument-Swapping SPAC Opener

After missing their July 4th festivities in 2015 (a certain guitarist had other plans…), the opening night felt like something of a homecoming for the band’s loyal Northeast fanbase.The show featured a number of great moments, including the debut of a great new song called “Let’s Go,” a 20+ minute instrument-swapping jam session on “Chalk Dust Torture,” covers of classic rockers like Jimi Hendrix’s “Fire” and Rolling Stones’ “Shine A Light,” and so much more.Thanks to DrFunkenstein, we can share full show video of this great SPAC opener.

Did the Federal Reserve whiff on raising rates?

But Moebs also is predicting rates will hold fairly steady over the coming 12-24 months, and may even inch up.“If President Trump keeps putting pressure on Fed Chair (Jay) Powell there could be one or two decreases in 2019. It is obvious from the Moebs Interest Rate Study the Fed increased rates two times too much in 2018,” said Moebs. “Yet, if the Fed decreases rates it would be signaling it made a mistake. I do not think the Fed will admit it made a mistake.” ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more
