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.

The rest of the show is reasonably good, certainly good for a tour opener; I imagine that most people will consider the first set to be the better of the two, and I think I'd agree with them, as it boasts strong versions of Stash, Theme (!), Wolfman's, and a neat segue from Mike's Song into Silent in the Morning (the entire Groove is not too shabby, either). The second set, for its many pleasures (the really mellow Page showcase in Golden Age, R&R melting away into an ambient jam), feels a bit like a missed opportunity more than anything else. Don't get me wrong, I listened to the show and I enjoyed it, especially in the aforementioned peaks, but the bar's been raised pretty high for 3.0, wouldn't you say? This show might have dropped jaws in 2009; in 2013 it's mixtape material. Nothing wrong with that. It's early days, after all, and if the worst that can be said about a show like this is that you'll want to hang on to not-insignificant chunks of it, that probably augurs well for the rest of the summer.
Hot damn, that Antelope was special, though.
