Phish finally made it’s long-awaited return the lovely Greek Theatre in Berkeley in August 2010, marking the first time the world’s greatest jam band had performed at the historic Cal venue since August 1993.

The quartet would definitely make the most of the occasion, roaring through a three-night stand that kicked off on Aug. 5 with a nearly 10-minute-long version of the concert favorite “Possum.”

From there, Trey Anastasio showed exactly why he deserves to be ranked among rock’s all-time best guitarists as he led Vermont’s finest through one epic jam after another at one of the finest outdoor amphitheaters in the country — which, thankfully, also happens to be in our own backyard.

Ten years later, however, the band still has yet to return again to the Greek, choosing instead the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco for most of its Bay Area dates .

Oh, but Bay Area fans — or, if you will, “Phans” — still fondly remember those 2010 Greek shows. And they’d surely love to relive some of that magical stand right about now.

Fortunately, they’ll have the chance to do just that on June 30, when the band’s popular Dinner and a Movie archival series presents a free webcast of the third night — Aug. 7, 2010 — of that Greek run.

That was a sensational show, no doubt. Phish opened that last night with an electric “AC/DC Bag” and then powered through such crowd favorites as “Character Zero,” “Harry Hood” and “Suzy Greenberg” before ending the epic evening with a double shot of “The Lizards” and “First Tube.”

Tune into the free webcast at 5:30 p.m. PST at or Phish’s Facebook page. The webcast is a fundraiser for the Music Health Alliance.

Of course, this Dinner and a Movie series is about more than just music. It’s also about food, with the band providing a recipe and cooking instructions to accompany each archival concert.

For the Berkeley show, the featured dinner is spanakopita (spinach and feta pie). The recipe and cooking instructions can be found at

Also, the audio for all three nights of that fabulous Greek run are available to purchase at Cost is $9.95-$23 (depending on format) per concert. Or bundle all three shows and save 10 percent.
