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.

PYITE is strong as always to start. Drowned is a random surprise in the slot it's in and has a great mucky funk jam. Gumbo is pretty strong. 2001 (also in a weird slow) is excellent and although doesn't trail far off is an excellent version.
Bowie is notable for it's long intro with several creepy "take me out to the ballgame" teases. About halfway through it breaks away from the typical Bowie structure and into a nice groove that is very rhythm driven courtesy of some great work by Fish and Mike. At the end is has an excellent pulsing segue into Possum. Possum is straight fire and has an excellent peak and is followed by a random jam that is very similar to Tube. Hood gets a little stretch and is very well played.
And the cherry on top is a great cover of Crossroads which leaves the place ablaze after.
Just another excellent show. Don't let the lack of noteworthy versions steer you away lot's of excellent stuff packed in each set!
