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.

Set 2/e: I like the song Carini, and as soon as I hear Page busting out the Rhodes sound I'm on board. Even when he switches over to the piano here he's still killing it. He kills it through this entire jam. The crescendo at the end of the Carini jam is a bit predictable, but also satisfying. Other than some occasional splashes of creativity, for the most part it feels like Fish has been on autopilot for the entire Carini jam. Even when it's reaching its peak it feels like he's playing the same pattern he has been for the last 10 minutes, only faster. The way they ease off the gas at the end is really interesting. Overall I'd say this Carini was very good, but nothing mindblowing. The rest of Set 2 was unremarkable, other than it being worth repeating that the new sampler is just awful. Yarmouth Road is not great...it sounds like a modern day country singer tried to make a reggae song. Mike taking a solo is pretty much always enjoyable though, so it's got that going for it (which is nice). The rest of the encore is fine but not noteworthy.
Overall, 7/30 is a huge improvement over 7/28. Highlights are Ghost and Carini, though neither are essential (other than the novelty factor of a jammed out Carini). Altogether, and taking into consideration that this is 3.0 Phish we're talking about and not 1.0, I'd say this show puts them on a good trajectory and I'm looking forward to the next one.
