Celebrate Fake New Year’s Eve With Fake Phish and Real Sprocket
New Year’s Eve and the week prior have long been a staple of the jam band experience. The entire year culminates in a lengthy spectacle of epic proportions often involving elaborate stunts and gags. But it can take a toll on the wallet, and this year the vaunted holiday falls on a Wednesday. What’s a poor jam fan to do? The good folks of Uncle Ebenezer have a solution! The hardest-working Phish tribute in New York City is faking it. That’s right! Next Saturday, December 27th, the group will perform a tribute set to epic Phish shows of years past. And since the foursome from Vermont have decided to ring in 2015 in BK this year, this will be a low-cost chance to catch some live Phish before the year is done.
But wait, there’s more! Joining in on the fun will be the best kept secret in jam – Sprocket. They like to rock it. The group has been spending all year honing their sound in clubs all over New York City and beyond. The two bands joined forces at the Knitting Factory in the summer for just about the most fun one can find on a Wednesday night. It’ll be quite a spectacle to see what they can pull off on the last Saturday night of 2014. Also joining in on the fun will be local singer/songwriter Steve Urban, who just wrapped up an album featuring jam scene stalwarts such as Scott Metzger and Jason Crosby. The night is sure to be all the fun of New Year’s Eve at a fraction of the cost.
