Phish have announced a special concert at Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction, Vermont next Wednesday to benefit flood recovery in the state in the wake of Hurricane Irene. Vermont was especially hard hit by the hurricane, with the state suffering the worst flooding in its history, resulting in significant damage to many of its communities.
