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 over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
Review by Mikesgroover
In the 50-minute first set, the surprise appearance of a rusty Paul and Silas follows a short Carini opener. The Stash features some traditional tension and release Trey jamming, but never delves into Type II territory.
The Taste that opens the second set features some more missed notes by Trey at the end and never really fires on all cylinders. Drowned gets broken out of the third time ever, and the first time since New Years Eve 1995, but this straightforward version never jams, which is the story of this night. Bowie is played patiently, but never finds a theme that sustains itself. Love Me is a rare treat for those interested in hearing Mike croon like Elvis. Let's just say that there's a reason they don't play this one any more.
The opening to The Day in a Life is botched, forcing the band to restart it. A forgettable ending to an eminently forgettable show.
