The irony here to me is how many people seem to think I didn’t have a good time at this show or didn’t find a lot to like about it. (The What’s the Use? was show stoppingly beautiful for me, for one, if that didn’t come across). Almost as if people are honing in on the critical moments and avoiding noticing the positive ones, as if something was at stake (it’s not). Your mileage may vary folks, and please don’t let one humble man’s opinion mar your enjoyment of the show, whether it’s posted here on the front page or not. Some things are a question of taste. Others less so, but I don’t think I’ll wade in that territory here. I will say that I feel far from jaded about this band, and anyone who’s read what I’ve written about them in the modern era knows how much I appreciate and enjoy what they’re still capable of. Just telling it like I see it. Believe it if you need it...It’s almost as if some of us feel like your review of the show looked past the positive moments and honed in on the criticism. You can criticize the show fairly, but if many folks think it’s an above average standout 2019 show, we’ll come here into the comments and state our disagreement.
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.
