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...
Absolutely 100% correct.

I'll admit I winced at the start of each of those songs, but I quickly realized what I was reacting to, the band I've been going to see since 1991.

The band that I watched disentegrate and thought was completely done in 2004.

The band that I watched rise from the ashes, be reborn, and continue to make new music. Not just new, really fucking good music.

And after my initial wince, I danced like nobody was watching and had a great time with great people!

You’re totally right. I had some pretty unflattering thoughts when I walked out of mpp2. Like the chick in front of me at New Years said (and sorry if I’ve used this one before): “I’ve seen a world without phish. It wasn’t pretty.” That’s not carte blanche to fuck up or steal my money, but I know they’re trying most nights even if it doesn’t happen. 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.
