Tweezer

, comment by n00b100
n00b100 Yes, it wasn't actually played in the calendar year of 2015 proper, but if you take an NYE run as part of a touring year (as I do), then this absolute superstar jam is a worthy ending for one of Tweezer's banner years. Half of it is pure driving Type I, something you might hear in 1992 or whatever, and the other half is a powerful get-off-your-ass-and-jam groove that resolves into a peak not unlike the 9/6/15 Disease. Pure joy in musical form, and a true highlight of the stellar MSG 2015-16 run.

itsice88 This was one of those jams you could obviously see coming from a mile away (in a GREAT way). Everyone was primed and ready for Tweezer to explode at the beginning of this second set and with every movement of the jam you could feel the corresponding crowd reacting with glee.

Some people have criticized the fact that this jam does not have a 100 mph exploding high octave peak at the end of the jam, but I find this notion unimportant considering the high quality of this jam. The beginning Type 1 section brims with energy throughout and absolutely explodes at the end. The jam then finds it way up a fourth from Am to Dmaj via a bouncy octave riff from Mike (a classic tried and true Phish tactic). What follows is gorgeous and celebratory and includes an almost supernatural start-stop section before finding its way to Trey's Dick's DWD-esque ascending major climax. Excellent jam that > into a fiery Type 1 Sand.

tomwom51 Truly a special Tweezer from a special night! Also, Trey and page both tease What's The Use? starting at 20:26 (LP time).
