BAKER'S DOZEN 5-YR ANNIVERSARY
At Phootykits we like to celebrate significant milestones in Phishtory. In an attempt to do this epic run justice, we have designed both Special Edition Baker's Dozen Phootykit & Phootyshirts
There have been milestones aplenty in Phishtory: Big Cypress of course, the Hampton return, countless Halloween shows, New Year's eves runs and Festivals. But musically, besides Big Cypress, this run at MSG (where else?) sticks out as the most relevant event in the band's history and musical evolution. Anything can be jammed out, as illustrated by the now classic phrase "Is this still Lawn Boy?".
13 Nights, 237 songs, 1 banner in MSG's rafters and 0 repeats.
How many shows did you hit on that memorable run?
The kit's color scheme was inspired by the banner honoring Phish's 13 night run at MSG that summer, and now hoisted in the venue's rafters: black, turquoise blue and red.
The body of the kit represents the infamous MSG roof, blown up for 13 consecutive shows (metaphorically), while the vertical color stripes lists the 13-night schedule, a reminder of the 13 different flavors "served" during the run.
To further honor each night, and because everyone is sure to have their own favorite, we have created 14 different sleeves patches with which you can customize your Baker's Dozen Phootykit: one "default" patch for the run, and one for each night/flavor.
Finally, on the back, we couldnt go without honoring THE song that most aptly symbolized the Baker's dozen run and became a Lot classic.
A BIG thanks to Brett Brenton for planting the seed of an idea 18 months ago! This kit wouldnt exist if it wasnt for him.
