Let the Madness Begin…

Tourney Time 2012

Enjoy the first round of action today, and here is a powerhouse playlist to rock with or without the ballgames. Also, make sure to cast your vote in Trey Is My Friend’s championship song bracket‘s Round of 32 by the end of today! And then head back for the Sweet 16 tomorrow! In the Phish universe, ticket madness is about to explode over the weekend as all the show of Leg One go on sale in two days! Get your strategies prepared!


Split Open and Melt -> Catapult” 12.31.99 I, Big Cypress, FL

One of the top highlights from Big Cypress—an all-time great.



Reba” 6.13.94 II Kansas City, KS

1994 and “Reba,” a match made in heaven. Here is another stellar version.



Ghost” 8.7.98 I, Raleigh, NC

A first set bomb after the rain stopped at Walnut Creek ’98.



Piper” 8.8.98 II, Columbia, MD

As Phish came back from Europe, after dropping Prague’s 7/6/98 version, “Piper” continued to expand.



Tweezer” 11.3.96 II, Gainesville, FL

A groovy and percussive version with Karl Perazzo; two shows after “Remain In Light” you can already hear the influence of the album’s style.



YEM -> Izabella” 7.26.97 II, Austin, TX

Everyone knows “Tweezabella,” but do you know her sister “YEMabella?”



Stash” 11.13.97 II, Las Vegas, NV

Phish dropped this mammoth “Stash” on the first night of Fall ’97. Funk, what?

    i love getting lifted at shows. i remember virtually every detail from all shows except some of summer ’96. otherwise, i know how to roll and what works for me. getting lifted at shows works.

    AC x caramels + sweet tarts + taint splasher / pre-rolls – (wet wipes) = 😯

    and if they stopped jamming altogether, i’d be able to focus on Arcade Fire tour. Keep the car running…

    I grabbed two tickets for Worcester Friday night because I thought that if Thursday night sold out before I could grab one that at least I could trade. The seats aren’t even that great but at least they’re center stage. Ended up pulling a section 102 for Thursday night over the phone. Welp, if anyone wants to get second night at Worcester I’ve got an extra. 🙂

    Phish + lifted = choice jams. Phish is the best. @lumpyhead See you in Woosta TMWSIY.
