This video is an amazing trip down memory lane, even though I wasn't there. The crowd, the vibe, the setting...it all could have come from any number of high school and college parties back in those days. Every prep school hippie, hip school preppie, and I can't decide looks interchangeable with someone I might have known or been. Ah, to be young again in simpler times! Many thanks to @mattynabib, @ucpete, et al for sharing this slice of historical history!Yes! I've totally noticed that: the person you see at a show these days and you go "Holy crap, that's that guy [acid spinner dude, devil sticks guy, etc. fill in the stereotype in whatever gender] ... no wait a minute, that was 25 years ago and he looks exactly the same. That's just the NEW "that guy" who fills the same ecological niche in the system today."
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 just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
