TTFF: Recent Summer Highlights

7-4-2012 (George Estreich)

Tweezer” 9.3.11 II, Commerce City, CO

One of the most cathartic grooves in ages. This jam brought it all together at the first Dick’s stand.



Simple” 8.6.10 II, Berkeley, CA

A very cool, experimental jam from The Greek.



Disease -> What’s the Use?” 8.14.10 II, East Troy, WI

Perhaps the most natural transition of the modern era comes—and a fiery jam, taboot.



A Song I Heard the Ocean Sing” 7.3.11 I, Watkins Glen, NY

The lone jam from the song following SPAC ’04, immediately integrated the ambient style from the Storage Jam the night before.



Piper > Mist” 8.9.10 II, Telluride, CO

This “Piper” provided a seething centerpiece to the first night in the Rockies.



Sneakin Sally” 6.4.11, Cuyahoga Falls, OH

This funk jam goes buckwild, transcending normal territory into dissonant, robo-grooves.



Bathtub Gin” 8.7.09 II, George, WA

This “Gin” anchored a non-stop second set of this ’09 show that is still among the best of the modern era.



Twist” 6.22.12 II, Cincinatti, OH

I recently wrote an entire piece on this jam.



Waves” 6.28.12 II, Noblesville, CA

This late-set gem was the only “Waves” jam the band played last summer.



Harry Hood” 6.2.09 II, Wantagh, NY

This was the first jam in 3.0 that I legitimately bugged on. An amazingly original take on a classic tale.

    Sup hombres? @miner- your diligence is appreciated and gettinguch fired as all hell for a few shows over the fourth. I am psyched that Tory is using different docs and writing music and shit. Shake it up a bit. Who knows what we’ll get. We need some mike led jihadi shit up in there. Great 3.0 choices for today btw…

    98 UIC Bag>Ghost is some serious PH bizness

  10. DavidSilver Says:

    Radiohead fans. Crisp old skool bootleg.

  11. gavinsdad Says:

    Sitting in work parking lot letting this gorge bag>ghost finish up. Agreed on the LB9 quality. Bag was unique and spacey…definite 98 style…bit of the groove bit of the vastness. Trey not missing notes at the tail end of this ghost either.

    It is happening again!

  12. gavinsdad Says:

    Not gorge. UIC.

  13. gavinsdad Says:

  15. Snigglebeach Says:

  24. btb Says:

    Phish Tour = Wing Season

  25. Spasm Waiter Says:

    Can’t believe my one and only Waves got axed by Tory at MSG…

    Dear Tory, Please do not axe jams that I have been chasing for years. It saddens and confuses me. Have a great tour. Have fun, maybe hit a doob before the SPAC shows, see what happens? Peace. -Spasm Waiter
