"have to say that I was bit upset with the fans though. We should be grateful to get to see Phish in whatever setting on whatever night and be grateful to hear what they want to play for us. "I was in no saying that every song is good. I am a Phish fan and definitely fall into the category of the hard core critique and analysis but to let out an audible sigh that bordered on a boo for a song choice is just poor taste. Really is where I was coming from.
Thats simply not true. There is a difference between being a fan of something, and being mindlessly appreciative of anything the artist throws out. I say this as an enormous fan of phish. I'd lose respect for my fellow fans if we simply assume every song is good, or every show is good.
I wasnt at these shows, so i'm only commenting in general. But im glad to be surrounded by smart, opinionated fans who dont always agree like sheep. We'd be worse off, were that the case.
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.
