Your Precious YouTube Videos May Go Down the Tube

Posted By on Thu, Aug 9, 2007 at 6:52 AM

Music videos are awesome. We yearned for the days when MTV and VH1 actually included music in their daytime content, but then YouTube came along and made everything better. Suddenly you could watch your favorite videos whenever you wanted instead of waiting until 2:30 in the AM for supposed music channels to finally show music. But just like the Viacom days of yore, all good things come to pass, and now the Big Four major record labels have joined an existing copyright lawsuit against the video-sharing service. And although the suit is yet to reach a verdict, we may lose out on another music video haven. Oh well. At least you can ingest psychedelics, put on your favorite song, and close your eyes. Bam, instant video.

    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
