Songs of Tour: “Tweezer” (Winter/Spring ’93)

“Tweezer” is the ultimate Phish bellwether song, in my opinion. From the ultra-psychedelic “Tweezer” jams of ’95, the porno-funk “Tweezers” of ’97, to the oxy-haze 2.0 “Tweezers,” no song in the Phish catalog better reflects the stylistic changes the band … Continue reading

May 6th, 1993: Palace Theatre, Albany NY

Night 2 at the Palace Theatre is Phish’s final show at this venue, and it gets off to a much stronger start than last night. There’s very little shakiness or mistakes throughout the first set; the band sounds nice and settled … Continue reading
