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 nedhelio
Finally it's showtime and out they come and immediately launch into a great Cayman Review. There were a lot of very strong moments in that first set, but it seemed to me that Trey was struggling a bit to make his guitar do what he wanted it to do. He had some moments of frustration, and I have rarely seen him fight that hard. By no means am I saying that it wasn't good, because it was great, but he definitely was having to work. The Alive Again was great, the Sand was unreal, and set ended on a high note with M,L&C.
Second set started with a blissed out Sweet Dreams Melinda, and as the set progressed any issues Trey was having in the first set had melted away. He was locked in the remainder of the show, and from Night Speaks on the show was blazing. The sparse crowd was having a blast, and the headz were bobbing. Ocelot was a high point, as was Clint Eastwood, which my wife looked over at me and asked 'isn't this that cartoon band song?' (She's the cutest.) The First Tube was mind melting, and the crowd was in peak orgasmic bliss as he was lifting his guitar to the sky for that bitchin feedback at the end. Rise/CT isn't my favorite, but is fine, and then they crushed Gotta Jibboo to end the show. Everyone was stoked heading out to the parking lot and the show was just great.
It's interesting to see someone as talented as Trey have to work to make it happen, as we all think of him as generally infallible. It's nice to know he's human just like the rest of us.
