I mean… I can’t think of a better way to spend a Wednesday afternoon. I just got back in the saddle after an absolutely epic Phish run in Las Vegas over the weekend, so I’m going through the usual melancholy and withdraw I go through when I finish a run of Phish shows. Even though I’m refreshed and energized, I get all sulky and weird, like when your favorite sports team gets eliminated from the playoffs and you know you’re not going to see them take the field for a while. I 100% acknowledge to friends, family, and co-workers that it’s an obsession.

Anyway, super talented, super chill pianist Holly Bowling is blowing up jam band fans Facebook and Twitter feeds right now with her absolutely epic 88-key renditions of Phish classics. The one that caught everyone’s attention is her facsimile of the now infamous 35-minute version of Tweezer The Phish from Vermont played in Lake Tahoe during the Summer 2013 run.  Incredibly, she manages to capture the entire jam on the ivories. Having attempted to play piano A LOT while growing up, I can’t imagine how long it took her to commit such a thing to muscle memory.

She also uploaded to Youtube video of a mini-set that include a medley of Phish staples, including “The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday,” “Wingsuit,” “A Song I Heard The Ocean Sing,” “My Friend, My Friend,” “Harry Hood” and “The Squirming Coil.” It’s super badass:

All roads lead to Miami.
