On Friday night in New York City, a new 100-minute documentary about Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio, Between Me & My Mind, premiered at the Beacon Theatre as part of the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival. The emotional film follows Anastasio and his Phish bandmates through the preparation process of 2017’s Baker’s Dozen run at Madison Square Garden, the crafting of the “Soul Planet” New Year’s Eve gag—when they transformed the World’s Most Famous Arena into a pirate ship–and the emotional and often uncertain process of creating Ghosts of the Forest as Trey’s dear friend Chris “C-Cott” Cottrell struggled with and eventually succumbed to his stage 4 cancer diagnosis. The documentary also features heartfelt one-on-one conversations between Trey and his father, his mother, his wife, and his two daughters.
Following the world premiere of Between Me & My Mind, Trey Anastasio Band took the Beacon Theatre stage for a special performance. TAB’s last performance together was at Radio City Music Hall for A Concert For Island Relief with Hurray For The Riff Raff, Aaron Neville, and a Dave Matthews solo acoustic set in January of 2018.
Trey Anastasio, Tony Markellis, Russ Lawton, Ray Paczkowski, Jennifer Hartswick, Natalie Cressman, James Casey, and Cyro Baptista made their triumphant return to the stage with a wicked one-set show. During the set, the reunited group delivered TAB originals (“Mozambique”, “Cayman Review”, “Curlew’s Call”, “Dark and Down”, “Money, Love and Change”) and Phish crossover favorites (“First Tube”, “Everything’s Right”, and “Sand”). For the encore, Trey performed a solo acoustic version of the heart-throbbing Phish tune, “More”, before welcoming his fellow Phish bandmate Page McConnell to the stage for versions of “Heavy Things” and the TAB debut of “Blaze On”.
