TTFF: 50 and a Short Poll


12-28-12 (Graham Lucas)


Here are ten more jams/sequences—unranked—that take the next ten slots in 2012’s Top 50. Below, I threw in a random reader’s poll. Take a few seconds to weigh in on some Phishy questions.

Tweezer” 8/26 II, Charlotte, NC

This jam could be ranked higher.



Back On the Train -> Hold Your Head Up” 6/28 II, Noblesville, IN

A rare move outside the lines of “BOTT” brought the show to outer space.



Disease > Sand -> Twist” 6/29 II, Noblesville, IN

This sequence felt like the start of a huge set.



Stash” 8/22 I, Kansas City, MO

A first set scorcher, one of the dark horse chunks of leg two.



Golden Age -> 2001” 6/30 II, East Troy, WI

A hearty dose of whole-band funk at Alpine.



Crosseyed > Slave” 6/16 II, Atlantic City, NJ

Solid Phish through and through.



Twist > Piper > Billy Breathes” 6/15 II, Atlantic City, NJ

A quality, mid-set chunk of 6/15’s second set.



Run Like an Antelope” 7/3 II, Wantagh, NY

A full-throttle run through the set closer.



Drowned > 2001 > Reba” 6/17 II, Atlantic City, NJ

Another high-quality start of a set.



Tweezer” 6/10 I, Manchester, TN

The Bonnaroo “Tweezer.” The best of Leg One.

    i guess i have heard this before

    solid goodness

    i still hold msg 95 as the highest of the high, but that is not to say that there isn’t one floating out there that may be better

    what’s shaking bb. i hope all is well. quick drive by: the new dave’s picks will be rad. ’69 was an amazing year for the gd. tc was a wonderful addition. when i was in high school 3/1/69 was a consistent go to. i can’t wait to hear the new pick. the grateful dead have been on constant rotation the last two weeks.

    on a side note: the goat is good.

    on another side note: been listening to a little 2.0 recently- a wonderfully underrated era.

  8. Sumodie Says:

    What the hell, made a Chicago hotel reservation, right across from Grant Park: Essex Inn, not sexy but has a rooftop pool & is very close to Northerly Island

    Doubt I’ll actually go, but just in case…

  9. Spasm Waiter Says:

    Bieber woozy…

  10. xpun Says:

    In case you didn’t click spasms link:

    “On Monday, he kept thousands of young fans and their tired, outraged parents up past their bedtimes after arriving on stage nearly two hours late for a sold-out show at the same arena. Bieber was greeted by choruses of boos from the crowd. Minutes into his performance, throngs of sobbing school-aged “Beliebers” were hauled away by parents desperate to catch the last trains home on a school night.”

    Holy shit. Axl II in the making. Little dickhead

  11. xpun Says:

  12. BNCB Says:
