The cover of Trey's new album was designed by vet, Jambands writer, and Mockingbird statistician David "ZZYZX" Steinberg (a.k.a. ""The Timer"). It involves a complicated equation to connect Bar 17 (the album title) with "18 Steps" (a track title), and employs Galois Theory, Set Theory, Combinatorics, and basic trigonometry and calculus, ultimately (if simplified) expressing the equation "17 + 1 = 18".

The Mimi Fishman Foundation has announced a new online charity auction to benefit Col. Bruce Hampton (ret.) and the Delta Gamma Center for Children With Visual Impairments. Col. Bruce, longtime Phish collaborator and friend of Mimi, performed at one of Mimi's earliest benefits (the 3/30/96 Mimi Fishman Birthday Party benefit for the American Glaucoma Society, with the Aquarium Rescue Unit) and at the first after her passing (10/5/01, with the Code Talkers as well as Merl Saunders).Auctioned items include many items from son (and Phish drummer) Jon Fishman's past, including various pieces of Fishman’s drum kits used on Phish tours as well as studio recordings, some dating back to the mid to late 80’s, all of which Fishman has signed. Ex Phish Director of Security, John Langenstein, has also donated Phish memorabilia out of his collection sure to be of interest to Phish fans.
