*****

Tweezer” 8.31 II

This late-set surprise completely blew up as Trey prominently featured his Camden ’09 “Tweezer” lick plucked from Led Zeppelin’s “When the Levee Breaks.”

***

Sand” 8.30 II

This jam provided the centerpiece of night one; the best version in a light summer for “Sand.”

***

Chalk Dust Torture” 8.31 II

The jam of the weekend at Dick’s—a multi-thematic monster anchored by the morphing rhythms of Jon Fishman.

Stash” 8.30 I

Though not quite on the level of Merriweather’s gem, this version elevates beyond the norm.

Carini” 9.1 II

A feel-good jam to cap a feel-good summer.

Caspian > Piper” 9.1 II

The second consecutive, out-of-character Denver “Caspian” segued, unfinished into a hot “Piper.”

Ocelot” 8.30 I

This was the jam with which the weekend began to elevate; my favorite version of the three thousand played this year.

***

Bathtub Gin” 8.31 I

A straightforward, though peaked-out and inspirational “Gin.”

Say Something > Walls of the Cave” 8.30 II

It didn’t take long for the band to place “Say Something” in the second set. Look for big things from this jam come fall tour.

    I got say, that’s a pretty high compliment @Marco. I’m pretty witty but minor leagues compared to baby’s wax.

    @C- more the former – mocking wax and baby’s.

  2. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Ypu guys and your obsession with Baby’sAss- hysterical..

    Now, the Wax ( parodoy account i assume) is some funny stuff.

    My wife and I had this high level conversation about our friends parenting choices all in terms of corporate management in front of our daughter last night. All went over her head. It was so satisfying.

    “…my favorite version of the three thousand played this year.”

    hahahah

    I was told my friend that all the people taking a piss break during Ocelot were making a mistake. You don’t skip anything in a show that opens with Ghost.

  8. RoosterPizza Says:

    I was told…nice

  9. marcoesq Says:

    Time for another open letter to Trey about how good this Tweez is

  11. Stoney Case Says:

    Slow material day Palmer! I think we exhausted the TNF game. With no RL, not much talk of Treys syncopated arrepegios. Or Fishmans metronome like psych wash fills.

    Struggling to keep pace around here.

    Spoiler Alert:

    Fall is the 30th anniversary run. Specials sauce being brewed at the barn.

  12. voopa Says:

    I get jokes.

  13. ren Says:

    Stoney super on point today.

    Fucking phishies suck! Hitting my 10th dab of the day at the moment…haven’t listened back but pick any Piper from this summer…slayed. fuck off snow

    ::attempts to bring the RL vibe::

  14. jdub Says:

    Glad I have 5, maybe 6 shows lined up for fall. Wish I could do more.

    Still no rumors about the Halloween set yet. Or have I missed something?

  15. ren Says:

    Phish is my sport…I get lost in all this stealie madness

  16. MiA Says:

    Ren to TT. Ren to TT

  17. Joe Says:

    We could argue 2012vs2013 some more or we haven’t discussed the effects of treys sobriety on his playing in awhile

  18. ren Says:

    Zing!

  19. jdub Says:

    Or we could talk about Syria. Fun stuff.

  20. Joe Says:

    New nickname heard on local radio that Stoney case will like. Aaron Dropson
