I’ll never understand why someone has to bring a backpack into a 3 hour rock and roll show but if you’re the wook that must, might as well support a good cause.Plenty of reasons -- poncho in event of potential rain, water bottle, place to store long-sleeved shirt or jacket, storing anything an individual may not want to carry in their pockets, etc.
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.
