In our second installment of Welcome To Now Picks from Phish’s MSG NYE run, we examine our favorite jam from night 2 of NYEMSG part deux. The hand’s down best jam sequence from 12/29 is the second set center-piece of Mike’s Song -> Chalkdust Torture -> I Am Hydrogen -> Weekapaug Groove.
The unexpected Chalkdust sandwich, near flawless segue into I Am Hydrogen, and ripping 10+ minute Weekapaug Groove elevate this song series above the rest of the night. The energy is soaring throughout this run of songs, and the boys really seems locked in. Obviously the band felt this performance was worth re-visiting as well, based on the fact that they choose it as the one official video to release from the 29th. Enjoy this tasty groove!
