Phish Bassist Practically Films Tourism Commercial for RVA and Lamplighter Coffee

Posted By on Fri, Oct 19, 2018 at 12:15 AM

If you're a fan of jam band faves Phish from Vermont, you'll dig a video posted Thursday on twitter by the band's bassist, Mike Gordon, who took a stroll in Richmond and fell in love. Yes, we know he's been here many times before.

As he wanders around looking for Lamplighter coffee, his genuine-sounding compliments about RVA sound like they could've come straight from a Venture Richmond brochure. And he's right, it was a beautiful fall day.

Check it out.

Phish is starting a three-night run at the Hampton Coliseum on Friday, where they previously recorded a double live album, "Hampton Comes Alive," riffing on the classic Peter Frampton title.
