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 ZapRowsdower
'96 Phish gets overlooked a lot in general, and this show is probably the most overlooked one of '96 - and for good reason.
This was Iowa, in the middle of November, there was a freezing ice storm happening during the pre-show and throughout. Because of this the lot scene was non-existent and the show was clearly cut short so the band could get the hell out of there.
The band knew the room was full of n00bs, so what they did was demonstrate many of their "sides" and "talents". Jamming is pretty by the book with little to no Type II to speak of.
What does it have?
Dark jam during Free
Banter from Trey before ATR, talking about how his mom is from Iowa and he has lots of family at the show
Trey on Acoustic for Talk
Nicely recovered flub at the beginning of Llama
Vocal Jam during Scent with Fish on Vacuum
Life on Mars
And an acapella encore
Lots of phishy n00b goodness, minus real deep jamming.
