But that matters not, because we know what just happened this past month. We felt what happened this month, and we <em>lived </em>at these shows. These shows weren&rsquo;t just a stunt done by the band to give out free doughnuts, or to confuse the hell out of all those outside of the Phish community. While those were simply added bonuses, this run of shows meant so, so much more than that to the band, to the phans, and more importantly, to the community that connects us, and them.</p> <p><figure><img alt="Photo &copy;, courtesy Stephen Olker" src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/2017-07-28 MSG Stephen Olker.jpg" /><figcaption>Photo &copy;, courtesy Stephen Olker</figcaption></figure></p> Thu, 17 Aug 2017 14:08:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@phishnet) Blog Charlie Miller's Aud Recordings Of Baker's Dozen http://phi.sh/b/5994fc19 http://phi.sh/b/5994fc19 <p>FYI, you can download <a href="https://archive.org/search.php?query=subject%3A%22Charlie+Miller%22">Charlie Miller</a>&#39;s aud recordings of the Baker&#39;s Dozen shows in <a href="http://bt.etree.org/details.php?id=594718">one (1) giant etree torrent</a>.

More often than not, only after a significant amount of time has passed, are we able to take a step back and realize how fortunate we were. The Baker&rsquo;s Dozen is, and was, the former in spades.</p> <p>Quickly in this run, it became impossible to ignore the fact that we were living something incredibly special.

We&rsquo;re always happy attend a show with 20,000 of our closest friends, there&rsquo;s always anticipation before a show, etc., but this felt different. This energy was akin to Game 4 of a Stanley Cup Final, when you&rsquo;re at home and you&rsquo;re leading the series 3-0, or leading the World Series-clincher by five runs heading into the ninth inning &ndash; victory is a forgone conclusion. Phish had won 12 straight at The Garden &ndash; and we knew we were in store for one final victory.</p> <p><figure><img alt="Photo &copy; courtesy Stephen Olker" src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/13.jpg" /><figcaption>Photo &copy; courtesy Stephen Olker</figcaption></figure></p> Mon, 07 Aug 2017 14:07:42 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@phishnet) Blog Mystery Jam Monday Part 286 http://phi.sh/b/5987b549 http://phi.sh/b/5987b549 <p>Welcome to the 286th edition of Phish.Net&#39;s Mystery Jam Monday, the first* and easiest of August.

It will be sold for&nbsp;$7, and will be served in a jar that&nbsp;you can buy for $3 (while supplies last). The jars were very popular at the previous fundraisers years ago (also held when Phish played Northerly), so we expect they&#39;ll sell out.&nbsp;</p> <p>For every &quot;Sample&quot; consumed over the weekend, Rock Bottom will donate fifty cents to Mockingbird, but they&#39;ll donate $1 to Mockingbird for every jar sold. So, in other words, <strong>if you buy a &quot;Sample <em>AND </em>a Jar,&quot; $1.50 of your $10 will go to Mockingbird</strong>, and support the funding of music education programs. Rock Bottom will also have some &quot;Phish-inspired&quot; live music on their roof on Thursday, July 13, and will have the &quot;Sample&quot; tapping party that day as well. This promotion thus runs from Thursday through Sunday the 16th. The rooftop will be open (and serving food) until&nbsp;10:30pm, and last call on the roof is at&nbsp;11:30pm. But the&nbsp;restaurant will be open post-show on&nbsp;Friday, Saturday, and Sunday&nbsp;with full menu until midnight and a late night menu until&nbsp;1am, with last call at&nbsp;1:30am. [<em>Editor&#39;s note</em>: I was there years ago after 1am&nbsp;post-show, and the place was full of fans.]&nbsp;&nbsp;The brewer, Raybird, and Kyle (an AGM) may be around if you show up at Rock Bottom, passing out Mockingbird information. PLEASE THANK THEM if you see them, as this is a very cool thing for them to do. (And you may see Kyle at a show as well, as he&#39;s a fan!) So, please, support this fundraiser if you can, and if you can&#39;t, at least tell your wook&nbsp;friends going to the shows to support it as well.&nbsp;</p> <p>THANK YOU ROCK BOTTOM!</p> <p><img alt="" src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/Sample in a Jar.jpg" style="height:800px; width:600px" /></p> Thu, 22 Jun 2017 11:51:51 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@Icculus) News July and August WaterWheel Benefits Pre-Show At MSG http://phish.net/news/1495648288 http://phish.net/news/1495648288 <p><a href="http://phish.com/waterwheel/">The WaterWheel Foundation</a> has announced two benefit celebrations at MSG before the shows on Saturday, July 22, 2017, and Saturday, August 5, 2017.</p> <p>Tickets for the shows go <strong>on sale tomorrow, Thursday, May 25, at noon eastern, <a href="http://click.email.ticketstoday.com/?qs=e904f0bd1ba7a0986bb81e49a4af00e30ff66389e0b6cdb6d9cddad9f8b37cfcd0e31898260e2832ce29c9f4421805233ef77f0ef19ed5bf" target="_blank">HERE</a>.&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>The first benefit celebration on July 22 will raise funds for four charities, each one chosen by a band member.

Corns (portrayed by fashion designer Freddie Buretti), mostly unknown to all but the biggest Bowie fanatics, was effectively the demo version of Ziggy Stardust. Bowie took some time making his idea of a fictional rock star a reality and Arnold Corns was his first draft, so to speak. However, Bowie soon realized that no one could play the role better than him and <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rise_and_Fall_of_Ziggy_Stardust_and_the_Spiders_from_Mars"><em>The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars</em></a> was born....</p> Sun, 23 Apr 2017 18:22:11 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@phishnet) Song
