TTFF: Holidays At MSG

Madison Square Garden (Brian Ferguson)

This Friday’s playlist is comprised of many of my favorite MSG moments from Holiday Run history. While a comprehensive list would be exhausting, these pieces represent the creme de la creme from The Garden’s past Decembers. Each selection is an absolute five star gem, so enjoy the high quality Phish for the weekend!


Tube” 12.29.97 II

The Mac Daddy of all “Tubes.”



Reba” 12.31.95 I

Bliss through music; one of the best versions known to man.



Tweezer” 12.30.94 II

The exploratory centerpiece of Phish’s first show at The Garden.



Harry Hood” 12.30.95 II

A life-chanager for me.



Mike’s Song” 12.31.95 II

In a year filled with masterful “Mike’s Songs,” this one could be the best.



Auld Lang Syne > Weekapaug > Sea and Sand” 12.31.95 III

A total blowout to kick-start 1996.



Carini > Wolfman’s Brother” 12.28.98 II

One of my personal favorite pieces of MSG Phish.



Disease -> David Bowie -> Possum” 12.29.97 II

A large chunk of one of the best sets ever played at The Garden.



You Enjoy Myself” 12.29.98 II

Not a wasted note.

    I think Lumpy’s quote was a Lost joke. I could be wrong.

    whaddup posters? I sure was confused when I checked on to lurk late afternoon and no one was posting.

    Rupp Gin night – as it is every month or so I stay at the Hyatt connected to the arena. The Ph needs to come back – I’ve got a solid rate and these rooms are made for partying, they even supply the speaker dock.

    Thought about you and the missus T3 a bit today – hope it all went down okay.

    DWD->Lizards>Simple. a nice compliment to the monster of a disease.

    caught 1 lizards ever, would love to hear it again.

  7. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    thanks, pig. so far so good. still kinda waiting to hear what the final verdict is, as there is a lot of gossip going around about what is happening. the hospital is still being pretty crappy about how they are handling communication…

  8. PigSong Says:

    Anyone been to India recently? I’m planning a trip to Calcutta in June and wouldn’t mind picking some brains. Mostly stressed on whether or not to bring the 8 mo old baby. ThePigSong at gmail if you have an opinion to voice.

  9. PigSong Says:

    that’s some bs 3po. Hopefully their lack of communication towards you and your family means there wasn’t a direct threat and they’re dealing with the most serious issue discreetly. sucks either way.

  10. TheLongCon Says:

    I thought this whole place was a Lost joke. That’s why I moved on.

  11. Angryjoggerz Says:

    Pig, personally I would not take a newborn to India… Too many health risks and vaccinations needed. I want to take my kids there but will wait until they are older and can appreciate it.
