[thanks to @Mshow96 for the announcement of the final vote - ed.]
The users of the phish.net forum have put their extra time during this forced break from touring to good use, reflecting and deliberating on what it means to define an era of Phish musically. To that end, the community has assembled a bracket of 64 landmark jams from the last decade plus of creative output from the Vermont quartet.
Months of lively discussion and weekly voting threads have now brought us to the final matchup between the venerable Tahoe "Tweezer" from Phish’s 2013 Summer Tour, and the young upstart 2019 Alpine Valley "Ruby Waves." Both imposing monuments to a decade of improvisation, but which should prevail?
Voting for the winner will be open to all users on the forum until Thursday, August 27th at 9 am EDT.

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
