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.

    Forgot about this YAMAR!!! Holy shite!

    Roseland was a fun experience

  3. xpun Says:

    Hahaha. MiA

    Guess the ticket taker just thought you approved of their stub handling ability.

  4. MiA Says:

    He didn’t take my ticket (luckily) but he probably thought “whatever… we need people in here drinking…”

  5. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    so are you going to shuffle back in there tonight?

  6. MiA Says:

    Absolutely. Has anyone ever drank (3) 5 hour energy drinks in a row? What does it do?

  7. MiA Says:

    From now on, I’m saying the name of the band that plays the next night to every bouncer. Just to see what they say.

  8. btb Says:

    Top o the morning BB –

    Checking in to make sure all of you are on the straight and narrow.

    When these dates going to drop? I’m thinking first week of March since it looks like summer tour doesn’t start until the end of June.

  9. btb Says:

    Also, favorite era of PH is most definitely 88-91

    Can’t get enough crispy AUDs to satisfy the hunger 😉

  10. phlorida phan Says:

    Thats easy MiA, you get 15 hours of energy, duhhh!

  11. MiA Says:

    ’00 was left out of the eras

    Miner refuses to accept that ’00 exists.

  12. ren Says:

    Another sick Yamar from ’97

  13. phlorida phan Says:

    ^Also loving your new endeavor in plucking jams for us. @MiA.

  14. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    i have, MiA. Not the best days, but my tolerance for stimulants is above average.

  15. voopa Says:

    Bonnaroo Tweezer needs more love. Not the best of ’12 by any stretch, but it was a good one.

  17. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    I still chuckle every time I hear that fish was in a band called ‘Frodo’

  18. gavinsdad Says:

    yeah thanks for this Yamar MIA. on it.

    i’m waiting for @telas to surface to we can talk Reba.

  19. Shred Says:

    I pay more attention to the jams MIA picks out then miner’s. This Yamir is tasty

  20. gavinsdad Says:

    didn’t realize Mike’s hair game was still so strong in ’00.

  21. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Both Frodo and Yamir have me chuckling

  22. Leo Weaver Says:

    Nice little groove in that Roseland Yamar, thanks for posting MiA. We were posted up on the soundboard rail just to Kuroda’s right. I had fun watching him that night.

  23. gavinsdad Says:

    can someone refresh me on Roseland? was that a wait on line only deal or were there actually tickets sold? i forget but i think i remember people having to do an all nighter over at the venue on a line. @Ren?

  24. voopa Says:

    gdad- I remember some people went straight from RCMH to Roseland…was reading accounts online from the west coast, don’t remember the ticket sitch.

    MiA- Hilarious! This Tuesday I went to an appointment that’s actually scheduled for next Tuesday.

  25. ren Says:

    Wait on line only deal. We got their about 24 hrs before “doors open”. Weren’t many there at that point. Policed ourselves very well. On-lookers and cops were very impressed. Spending the night on the sidewalk was a trip. Met this older neighborhood character that bought us beers (underage at the time)….had a blast! Waiting on line was as much fun as the show.
