Hmm, this image doesn't pop up. "The Arena" doesn't go by that name, no matter what this poster says. Albany's shed for its big shows, it was originally named the Knickerbocker Arena (or The Knick), a fine civic name with local relevance. Well, in the mid-'90s some dickwad sold the naming rights and it's now known as the Pepsi Arena. Maybe Phish and/or Pollock deliberately left the corporate sponsor name off the poster? Kudos if they did.
I agree Art, it has a "vibration" or "buzz" to it, a liveliness. Is he raking in the bucks these days? I remember reading an interview a few years back where he said he was gonna ride this style into the ground and squeeze as much $$ out of it as he could. I admired his honesty!
