Which night was your favorite of the Baker's Dozen?
« on: August 16, 2017, 09:55:22 PM »
I've always liked these poll threads. Hopefully everyone has listened to all 13 shows in their entirety before voting. I won't vote just yet, since I haven't listened to the shows leading up to the last weekend yet. Here's the rundown someone posted the other day for quick reference. Go vote!

Obvious answer is obvious.

Top three are 4, 2, 10.

Night 11 was awesome, it's up against night 4 so...

Obvious answer is obvious.

Mister Charlie told you so.

Obvious answer is obvious.

obviously...but...I feel like Holes is not getting the love it deserves.  TONS of references all night, including Heavy Things and A Day In The Life (Page was cracking up during that one, almost like he forgot about it!), and there were some really unique and fantastic jams that night.  Meat was extended quite a bit, Antelope sounded straight out of '95, Mikes & Taste were sublime, and Maze had some serious heat too.

Still (re)listening through parts so I can't cast a vote yet. Recency bias has me boosting night 11 a bit at the moment. Night 6 was perhaps my favorite attended (6-8).

Voted 13 but 2, 4, 8 -> 13 were all top notch.

Things went into a different gear on night 8 and never cooled down.

I just finished it and the whole thing is stellar start to finish.
I'll totally revisit these shows some day.
That sounds like a long ways down the road but you get my point.

Voted 4, but was tempted by 12.  The Boston Cream medley was one of my favorite attended  :phish: moments ever.

Jam of course, but I wasn't there! I attended Strawberry and then the last 9 and Powdered and Holes were my favorite attended for a variety of subjective reasons.

Man this was such a sick phish run. I love how nearly everyone has different favorites. All 13 shows had something to offer.

I really have a hard time picking myself. Since I can only vote for one, I suppose I'll default to Night 4 cuz, ya know... that was awesome. I think seeing End of Session was my personal highlight of the 11 I saw.

Night 3 was another favorite, it was my bday and I was feeling fine  ( :wtu: ) and I f'n loved the ambient jamming in that second set. I was actually  scared at the end of that Waves. That's good phish.

I think the best jam of the run goes to the ASIHTOS.  They got to a completely new/unique musical space that wasn't just your average 3.0 major rawk/peak jam. Good stuff.
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.
