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.

Highlights: a choppy, dark Light that shares DNA with the Timber-inflected version from earlier this month; a complex, triumphant Stash; the return of Roggae featuring a gorgeous jam only slightly marred by mistakes in the written portion; and a spectacular Makisupa > Hood > Contact run that's all about the inimitable Mr Michael 'Cactus' Gordon. Mike is ON FIRE all throughout the show, actually. You'll hear complaints about the energy level in Set One, and it's not a classic set or anything, but the boys got themselves warmed up and knocked the rest of the show out of the park.
(And who can complain about the performances of Roggae, Stash, or Beauty of a Broken Heart? Even Phish's warmup shows feature some fantastic playing.)
As the seats fill and the energy builds to Thursday night, I bet the NYE run will eclipse the run of strong MSG shows in short order.
