OPT’s Best Phish Run March Madness – Second Round: North and South Regions

Today we continue the round of 32 by voting on the North and South regions. We’ve got fan favorites, lots of ’97, our only “2.0” or “3.0” show that made it out of the first round and a very interesting bracket in the South with a 9, 11 and a 12 seed potentially upsetting higher seeded opponents. Voting is still open for the East and West regions, so please check it out and play a roll in this tournament!

South

1. NYE ’95 vs. 9. 2/26-2/28/03 – The New Year’s Eve that made MSG the NYE Phish-cathedral vs. kick-ass”2.0″ shows. I love upsets, but as Gob Bluth would say “Come On!”

3. Clifford Ball vs. 11. 12/2-12/3/97 – The first Phish fest and solid shows from the Phish Destroy’s America tour. Normally this would seem easy, but ’97 is a deep year.

4. 5/5-5/8/93 vs. 12. 7/19-7/21/91 – An oldhead’s dream match-up. 7/19-7/21/91 might be a 12 seed, but do not overlook these feisty contenders; however, 5/5-5/8/93 could be the creme de la creme from ’93.

  • 5/5/93-5/8/93 (68%, 72 Votes)
  • 7/19/91-7/21/91 (32%, 34 Votes)
