The first set contains a magnificent, gorgeous version of "Halfway to the Moon," obvious to anyone with ears who isn't prejudiced against the song per se. Trey usually plays it rotely, almost like he couldn't give a shit at all whatsoever about it. But last night's version is soulful and charming, performed in a manner that I wish it were performed in every damn time they play it.Through three shows, I feel like this is true for a number of 'first set standards'. The 7-16 Oceleot (yes, Ocelot) was a thing of beauty. It was basically a Roggae jam played during Ocelot. Patient. Very Bird Song-esque.
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 $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
