Has it been twenty years already? Phish released their classic album Billy Breathes on October 15th, 1996, and the album launched the band in new directions. Released during the height of the band’s most creative period, Billy Breathes contains absolute classics like “Free”, “Theme From the Bottom”, “Character Zero”, “Taste”, and “Waste”, marking a shift towards the band’s more generally-accessible songwriting.With that in mind, beloved venue Brooklyn Bowl has teamed up with Brookladelphia to put together the ultimate 20th birthday party for Billy Breathes. Twenty Years Later: A Celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Phish’s Billy Breathes will find six up-and-coming jam bands performing original sets of music, all while weaving the entirety of Billy Breathes into the night’s setlist. The bands–Aqueous, Jimkata, Teddy Midnight, Cousin Earth, Escaper, and Bad Faces–will divvy up the album and spread its songs throughout the night, with each band delivering their unique take on tracks from the classic album.The show will take place on Sunday, November 6th, and tickets are on-sale now (and can be purchased at this link). You can find more info on the show and the artists involved at Brooklyn Bowl’s website.We can’t wait to get to the Bowl to celebrate one of our all-time favorite albums!
