On Friday, April 12th, 2024, Weird Phishes will be performing at The River Street Jazz Cafe!
Weird Phishes is exactly what it sounds like - the iconic melancholy rock songs of Radiohead completely reborn as danceable, crunchy jams. With full-album performances, unexpected mashups, and gluey funk-driven improvisation, their jam-heavy take on alt-rock classics has sparked unexpected energy in audiences across the northeast.
A quick glance at the band’s social media gives a glimpse into why this unlikely mashup proves worthwhile. “Bought tickets on a whim because I love both bands, had wanted to check out the club, and thought it would be amusing. I was not expecting such incredible musicianship and thought that had gone into their set...it was one of the best shows I’ve seen in years.” Said one user. “Clean, creative mashups of a favorite album and great Phish selections. Great energy.” says another. “Impossibly excellent show.”
In July 2019, Weird Phishes solidified their place in the New England jam community, playing back-to-back afterparties for Phish’s performances at Fenway Park. With a growing fanbase and an ever-changing setlist, the band continued their breakout year with several headlining performances in Boston and a fall tour to the midwest, topped off with Phish afterparties in Providence and New York, and the very last performance at legendary venue Nectar’s before the pandemic hit. When live music returned in 2021, Weird Phishes returned with a force. The band made its triumphant return with a headlining performance at the inaugural Safe and Soundz festival, and took a victory lap in their home city, selling out the Aeronaut Cannery and performing at the legendary Paradise Rock Club.Buy Tickets
