Formed back in the early 1990’s, The Apples in stereo are a long running indie rock band from Colorado. Despite having seven full length albums and numerous world tours under their belts, the band got one of the biggest boosts of their career last night (07/05/13) thanks to a rock band from Vermont known as Phish.
Having already made Ween and TV on the Radio famous within the wonderful world of jam band loving hippies, Phish busted out a cover of The Apples in stereo song Energy during the first of three nights at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) in Saratoga New York. With lyrics so simple that Trey Anastasio could have penned them with longtime writing partner Tom Marshall, it’s rather incredible how perfect of a cover this is for the band. You can watch footage of Phish performing the song down below.
Judging by their verified Twitter account, The Apples in stereo are having a blast with Phish fans discovering their music. As mentioned above, Phish will return to SPAC tonight for another round of insanity under the pavilion. If you can’t make the show, you can order a webcast Pay Per View style via LivePhish.
