Shafty, Garcia Birthday Band
9 pm., Saturday June 29 | $14 advance, $15 day of show.
[PHISH PHRY] Having put in its time intricately covering the entire Phish catalog in the basement of the Goodfoot, Portland quartet Shafty has graduated to the Wonder, where its huge light show and extended takes on fan favorites are poised to be rapturously embraced by Phisheads too broke to see the real thing at the Gorge next month. Utilizing the same setup as the actual band—minus the raging egos and inflated ticket prices—Shafty is what happens when fan obsession manifests in emulation, rather than creepy letters and trespassing arrests. There are many Phish tributes out there, but this one is ours, and it deserves a stage big enough to match its fan base.
