Nassau Wins the Title

Nassau Coliseum

#1 Nassau Coliseum 52 #1 Auburn Hills 36

In the championship game of Tweezer Madness, Nassau Coliseum’s ’03 version took down the Palace ’97 and captured the trophy. Although the game was competitive, the result was never truly in doubt, as Nassau grabbed an early lead and was able to maintain separation throughout the game. The only 2.0 Tweezer in the tournament out-dueled the Fall ’97 favorite in a battle between two defining versions. We caught up with Nassau in their champagne-soaked locker room, and the champ had this to say, ” We want to congratulate the Palace on an amazing season. That’s a nasty Tweezer over there, and it deserved to win as much as we did. In reality, Auburn Hills is a deeper, more psychedelic jam, but we had the advantage of length, and you know what they say—size matters. I want to thank all the voters that came down on our side, and we are happy to represent the much-maligned era of 2.0 in taking home the title.”

The Palace version offered it’s own take. “I can’t say we’re not disappointed, but its no embarrassment to lose to that monumental Nassau version. That middle section of music is as good as anything the band has ever played. I thought the score would have been closer, but sometimes things just don’t fall your way. They started the game quickly and we could never quite catch up. On another day, I think we could have defeated the Nassau squad. It was an honor to play in the national final, and it’s an experience we’ll never forget.”

It was a game for the ages, and the fitting end to an amazing month of music and basketball. It was truly a fun event and a joy to watch unfold. Hopefully people got exposed to some new versions and were able to revisit some old favorites along the way. And that brings Tweezer Madness to a close. The selection committee and Uncle Ebeneezer would like to thank all of the voters who helped make this tournament happen. We hope you’ve enjoyed the experience, and we look forward stepping into the freezer together in a little over a month as we prepare for new versions to unfold. Until then…please her with a Tweezer.

    mercury and fuego were incredible, especially Merc. They keep topping themselves with the killer Merc jams

    May have to go to mohegan to redeem myself. I feel like a dumb turd for flaking Sunday camden. Lost focus. Lost direction. Mental breakdown. Ball dropped on breakaway kayup

    Testing testing 1-2 … BB eating my posts. Sup!

  5. Hadtohavethat Says:

    Some pretty nasty weather at Fenway tonight, stay dry or wildly wet Pham! Really looks like things should clear up around 7. Just sucks they told everyone to show up at 630 then wouldn’t let em on the field!

  6. Bwana Says:

    Back on couch tour after hitting Camden and SPAC… Great to see so many friends (BB well represented), DANCE (bum ankle and all!), and be in the direct live zone of these jedi sound wave masters ~ #Moat4lyfe #SPACaliensHoneyLoveU

  7. HadToHaveThat Says:

    No setbreak tonight!! Gahhh!!!!

  8. HadToHaveThat Says:

    When is the last time this has happened?!
    The plot thickens

    Taking a backseat this tour, couchin it up. Love to hear of all the BB’rs gettin theirs! Charlotte one and done. Not to shabby imo 🙂

  9. HadToHaveThat Says:

    A friend cannonball’d It 10+ hours to Fenway for his hundo, assured him these things should be nothing less than legends of lore!

  10. Sex&City Says:

    Is it like a Festival set?

  11. BingosBrother Says:

    Don’t worry, that show doesn’t count in the stats.

    @Vape: you need a gofund to get you and your laptop to Mohegan? Do it brother. Do it for your self. Take some naps, play some craps,eat some capsrun some laps. We need you on that wall.

    Even with the bad weather I don’t see why they couldn’t jam anything in the second half of the show. There’s been a lack of extended jams this tour, with nothing usually getting past 10 minutes in set 1. Set 2’s have about 1-2 big jams early on and not much else for the rest of the night. It feels like a huge missed opportunity.

  13. Joe Says:

    Put up a few codes from Fenway night 1. Not sure if they got used yet

  14. Hans Says:

    Fenway Merc is IT. Multifaceted Jam of year contender.

    Spac Disease is not a keeper.

  15. RoosterPizza Says:

    SPAC Twist is so good. Disease>S&SS>Twist is my current go-to section of music from the summer.

  16. RoosterPizza Says:

    Mr Completely, 20YL> Big Black Furry Creature From Mars, Tweezer is the other section

  17. uncle-jimmy Says:

    Don’t forget to mix in that C$P>ER>ruby waves. The Bangor fuego>cities is a doozy, too.

  18. Hans Says:

    Fenway Mercury might be jam of the year.

    Camden 6/30 is the stuff of legends.
    MPP II is top tier great phish.

    Stlouis II Twist Completely Light are HM

  19. Light Glaze Says:

    Dorn! Dorn! Dorn! Are those tickets still available?

  20. Hans Says:

    Disclaimer: this is still very fluid. I need to spin and respin lots of jams to fully develop.

    This tour is solid and we’ll definitely get another heavy hitter this week. 3 nights at Alpine is a guaranteed all timer jam session.

  21. Light Glaze Says:

    Tour is spotty at best.

  22. Hans Says:

    Agreeing on the spottyness. Just spun a bunch of jams, there’s a lot of misses.

    Spac both nights. Camden Merc. Just not fully there. Going back to 6/30 to see if it remains hyperbolic.

  23. kayatosh Says:

    the Hee-Haw tour

  24. kayatosh Says:

    before there was the donkey, there was the St. Louie Ghost (6.11.19) – $$$ Relaxed guitar soloing, trilling, and thrilling. so many crisp notes. the jam’s denouement is mysterious and sweet like late era grateful dead jams

  25. uncle-jimmy Says:

    Word vape. I’ve said it twice and I’ll say it again. These fuckers sure can take you places in 10 minutes. Let us also not forget that Blossom SOAM. Not much has been said, but that shit is straight filthy.
