Breakfast gigs are all the rage, apparently. Bon Iver is gearing up for his cemetery slumber party this weekend (includes breakfast!) in L.A. and now Phish have announced their own daytime performance (w/ coffee and donuts!) on the “morning” after Halloween at Festival 8. Whereas Bon Iver’s show starts at the crack of dawn, Phish’s first ever full-length acoustic set is set for the “crack of noon” on Sunday morning. The obvious joke here is that Phish’s festival fans wouldn’t be able to wake up earlier than noon, but trust me, kids, nobody sleeps at these things.
Phish’s Festival 8 is set for Halloween weekend in Indio, CA at the same site as Coachella, where the band are scheduled for 8 sets, including their traditional Halloween “cover album” set. Meanwhile, Bon Iver’s sunrise concert at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery opens the gates at midnight on Saturday night.
Both shows include overnight accommodations, but I doubt anyone’s bringing their pillows and sleeping bags along.
