Tweezer

, comment by n00b100
n00b100 Probably the consensus choice of the finest Tweezer from August 2015, one of Tweezer's Mount Rushmore months (I actually, deep down, think they scaled back Tweezer in 2016 pre-Lockn'/Dick's because that's one hell of a hard act to follow). Much like the Kill Devil Falls from the night before, one of those jams that basically tells you everything you need to know about how shit gets done in 3.0 - remarkable improvisation, touching as many aspects of what Phish does so well with an octopus-like reach, and even hitting a peak or two on top. One of the true highlights of Summer 2015, a tour that has more highlights than Jacoby & Meyer's has suits.

TweezingSpaceRanger Attendance Bias Review: Have I heard better live Tweezers (in 3.0, I'm a late bloomer)? Yes (Hampton 13, Magnaball, and MSG 16)
But at this show, with some of my closest friends on the lawn and coming off a scorcher of a show the previous night, I was calling a second set Tweezer opener all day. When I heard the opening notes of the Tweezer, me and my best friend (it was his second show) were halfway to the beer vendor. We began to run back but decided that chugging a beer during a second set opening Tweezer is mandatory. So we blazed on through the concession line spun as all hell. Somehow I made $20 in singles for change for beer that costed less than $20 total. I had an idea of the mistake the cashier made, but to be real, I was too excited for the Tweezer (and a little too out of it) to correct the mistake. From that point on, there was no place I would have rather been in the entire world than partying with my close friends on the lawn throughout a 27 minute Tweezer. The Tweezer was not even close to the best Tweezers I've ever heard to be honest, but goddamn there was no other place I would have rather been in the world.

CreatureoftheNight I believe our reviewer is suffering from JVS: jaded vet syndrome or trying to compare this jam with Tahoe. Sure there's about 4 minutes of searching, but the first 19 minutes or so represents my favorite jamming of the summer so far. Truly spectacular interplay and emotion from all 4 band members. I can't stop listening to it and could not recommend it highly enough.

I really really love this version (attendance bias certainly could be a factor), and have already re-listened to it many times. There is a lot going on here. More each time I listen. It is perfectly suitable as a passive listening experience, but there is a lot of subtlety here that requires a little more active engagement. I think each member poured a lot of heart, soul, thought and effort into this one and it does achieve its mission. This is a special Tweezer. I hope people revisit it often, and I think they will be rewarded if they do so. I predict it will gain more and more cachet over time.

I agree. I think the description undersells this jam, which is magnificent (and no attendance bias for me, unfortunately).
