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.

    I don’t know much about much, but I do know that I want to take a ride in kaya’s streamlined space submarine. Of that, I am sure.

    Ok I’ll go in fully on MPPII.

    That trifecta is simply sublime. Just full band relaxed hose. The new material I’ve been wary of but Ruby Waves is fantastic and here it’s a super interesting contrast from the relaxing dream hose found in ER. Driving cerebral psych attack. It’s right on too, that swirling style can come off frantic and dizzying but they nailed it. Especially fish, he’s on point. Fucking love it!

    The band sounds great imho. Connected. Full. Rich. Cohesive. I never worry about what’s not there anymore. That’s uncontrollable so it’s seems like wasted energy for me to dwell on it. But I am liking what is there. Especially from Bangor N1. A couple of amazing long form jams with plenty of other thick cut hamlets sprinkled about. Good stuff.

    Cheers BB.
