Chatting with a friend post-show, I said, "any Phish show is a good Phish show." His response, a bit tongue in cheek, was, "don't give me that dad crap!" I am a dad, but I've also weathered the ups and downs of the hiatuses. Many of us remember when there was no Phish for a while. It sucked.

Look, if your favorite musician is Beethoven or Miles Davis, awesome. But can you go see them live? My favorite musicians are in the same band, and I get to see them every year.

Someday there will be no Phish. Until then, any Phish show is a good Phish show.
I strongly agree with this. At the same time, some shows are better than others. There's just no getting around that.

Also, it's OK to dislike certain songs. The point is, if you look for the good stuff in any given Phish show you're gonna find it. It's up to you what you choose to focus on, the flaws or the beauty. 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.
