California punk trio Blink-182 recently dropped “Generational Divide,” a fast new song. New Orleans rapper Lil Wayne released Tha Carter V, his 12th studio album, last year. The two have come together for a joint tour that lands at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Sunday, July 21.

American jam band Phish performed to the utter delight of a stupified sold-out crowd at Merriweather Post Pavilion recently, and I was there taking photos and spacing-out to the music and getting into the groove.

“There’s a specific kind of fucked up person who pays good money to see this much sad music,” declared Rockville native Father John Misty after he finished singing “The Palace” recently. After playing “Elephant,” co-headliner Jason Isbell told the crowd at Merriweather Post Pavilion, “That’s a sad song. I made the fucking thing up and I know it’s a sad song. I’ve sung it 150,000 times and it still makes me sad.”

We’ve seen Brandi Carlile before, we’ve walked the very same steps at Merriweather Post Pavilion, sat under the same stars, even heard some of the same songs. But no part of us could prepare for the joy-letting, the rampant release of emotion, the impossible catharsis, and the absolute connectedness of this recent show.

Phish hit the road for the summer on a 26-date tour that culminates with the band’s traditional Labor Day run of shows in Commerce City, Colorodo. Along the way, guitarist Trey Anastasio and company stop at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Saturday, June 22, and there are very few seats remaining!
