Yes, I understand this is not exactly a scientific poll, but I still LOL'd.

And yes, that second set was quite enjoyable.

That is pretty hilarious. Even I was extremely enthusiastic about 12/30 but...  I'm uh... not sure it edges out NYE95  :shakehead: yikes.

Recency bias. Things'll settle out.

They really shouldn't open voting on such things until two weeks later.

I thought it was the "24-hour" rule?

Amazing show!  I was blown away.  The floor was rocking and we had plenty of space.  Def a heater of a show and I can't wait to hear it again.  Might even buy the LP app lol since I am not near a PC.  I was pretty lit, but why would anyone not say that was Party Time?  And the way they slid into it was a thing of beauty. And I am always chasing Sparks.  I last saw it at the S show and before that (first time) it was in like 93, so yeah, 3 times in 360 shows is not a lot. Love that shit.

Sparks is literally the only song I'm left chasing... and I continue to chase. The only one I care about.

I've burned out the Tinley Park '93 LP release so much, those opening notes to Sparks are ingrained in my brain, so at the 'S' show, I immediately knew it was Sparks and started flipping the fuck out.
To know me is to know my love of Phish.  :smoke:

Finally got around to playing this one today.  Holy cow!  Excellent show.  Best of 2016 maybe (second set)?  Really good one.

This second set was my favorite of 24 shows attended this year.

From what I saw - Only Hartford and Dicks3 gave it a run for its money.

Nice. I caught 4 shows in 2016 and Hartford and this one were among them.  Both were tits.  :beers:

You wouldn't put 10/28 up there with those shows?

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

It was up there.

The Golden Age from Vegas stands up to the best jams of these other shows, but, I preferred these 3 as a whole

At the time I was having trouble picking favorites in Vegas, but upon further review I find 10/29 (especially II) really stands out.

Finally got to this today
Great show
2nd set was totally on. I loved the outro in Wading.
