Last weekend, Phish wrapped up their summer tour with two performances in Southern Calfornia. While fans will be talking about some highlights from the finale in Chula Vista, the show one night prior, at The Forum in Los Angeles, certainly had its moments.Among those moments was an all-out jam session during “Scent of a Mule” in the second set, which saw both Trey Anastasio and Jon Fishman playing on the Marimba Lumina instrument. The jam goes into some weird trippy places before returning for the song’s bouncy conclusion.Thanks to Phish, we can share some pro-shot footage of this tune.

Jack Black’s just pledged allegiance to the band! The creator and headliner of the hit 2003 movie School of Rock stopped by Andrew Lloyd Webber’s stage adaptation for the first time on May 1. “It’s surreal,” Black told Broadway.com. “I had lots of déjà vu and lots of powerful moments of pride to be part of something that has transformed into this incredible Broadway masterpiece.”The musical stars Alex Brightman in Black’s role of wannabe rock star Dewey Finn. “There’s no way I could have done it that well. He really made it his own and he took it to another level,” said Black. Brightman revealed: “We’ve been waiting for him and he stayed away for great reasons. He wanted to let the show be its thing and now he came and this was one of the best shows we’ve done!””It’s just so emotional,” added Sierra Boggess, who plays headmistress Rosalie Mullins in the tuner, about Black’s attendance.”My hope is that he feels that we really honored him.” We think it’s safe to say the three-time Broadway.com Audience Choice Award winner’s wish came true. Added Black: “I was laughing, I was crying and I was rocking!”Directed by Laurence Connor and featuring new music written by Lloyd Webber and lyricist Glenn Slater, with a book by Julian Fellowes, the production is playing at the Winter Garden Theatre.
