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.

At first glance, the setlist speaks for this show. Wonderful selections all beautifully performed. This was the second time that PHISH had played The Valley Club in 1989 and they appeared quite comfortable with their surroundings.(I believe there was a February show in '89) Rutland is not far from Hebron, NY, so there were many friends of the band in attendance.
ON WITH THE SHOW: The first set absolutely rocked!! A guest appearance from Nancy (Halley's) is an obvious highlight, as it always was. I was so sweaty from this set, so I decided to race home and took a shower during the break. I arrived back just in time for the highhat intro of David Bowie. This night, however, the song was named as "Lazy Lester." I recall that this had to do with a poster on the wall referring to an actual performer known as Lazy Lester. They had a blast in chanting his name. After "Mango," Trey introduced some of the numbers "a new song followed by an old song" or something like that. He also made references to watching the NHL playoffs and how "Spilt Open" reminded him of playing hockey.
Set three began with my personal request "Slave," and ended with "Shortage," which was an adlibbed number inserted as to prolong the last call and to extend their playing time. "Possum" also found Trey borrowing Molly's hat so he could wear it while he played.
All in all, one to look for.
