Perhaps one of the most well-known crossover moments between the world of Phish and Grateful Dead worlds came in April of 1999, when bassist Phil Lesh hosted a Phish-y Phil & Friends performance at The Warfield Theatre in San Francisco, CA. The run took place between April 15-17, with a first-rate lineup including Trey Anastasio and Page McConnell from Phish alongside Steve Kimock and John Molo.
Yesterday, full video of the first show of the run surfaced on Facebook, courtesy of taper Art Granoff and uploader Kevin Tobin and several others. The videos kept trickling in, and now videos of the full run have emerged.
