Phish completed their ninth Baker’s Dozen show Tuesday night in their already legendary 13-night run at Madison Square Garden. Each night the band has featured a different flavor of donut, which sees Trey Anastasio, Page McConnell, Mike Gordon and Jon Fishman tailoring their sets to reference each night’s fried dough confectionery. While some shows have featured themed a cappella covers, Aug. 1’s affair was all instrumental. Tuesday's flavor turned up "maple," prompting Phish to open with an instrumental version of “O Canada” as well as Mike Gordon's “Sugar Shack," which contains several maple references.
Another sugary treat came during the Egyptian-themed “Guelah Papyrus" from Picture of Nectar, which they busted out about midway through the first set. The tune was a sandwich made up of Guelah bread with a sweet “Maple Leaf Rag” in the middle. The Scott Joplin number was played solo by keyboardist Phish McConnell. After the band segued back into “Guelah,” Mike and Trey ended the song with a tasty little jig punctuated by a high kick. You can check out fan shot video of the “Guelah Dance” above.
