As you&#39;ll read, TAIT is a company with longstanding ties to and a love for Phish, who were only too thrilled to be asked to work with the band on the most dramatic revision to its stage presentation in its 33-year history.</em></p> <p>You couldn&#39;t miss it. When Phish took their usual places onstage in St. Paul to kick off their 2016 summer tour they had some impressive new hardware at their disposal. First, behind them in a half-circle, stretching from stage right to stage left, was a five-and-a-half-foot tall wall of light-emitting diode (LED) video screens. Second, above their heads was another huge, rectangular screen, facing down and toward the audience. As the show started, colors and images began playing across both screens. For the entire first set, the overhead array stayed in a compact rectangle. But when things got cooking at the start of the second set&mdash;<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7GNB1pTWzY#t=2m41s">during the throbbing minor-key &ldquo;Mike&rsquo;s Song&rdquo; jam</a>&mdash;the big rectangle fragmented, spreading apart into a patterned array of smaller screens, a look reminiscent of the hordes of perpetually attacking spacecraft from classic arcade games like Space Invaders and Galaga.</p> <p><figure><img alt="Photo &copy; Rene Huemer" src="http://phish.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/038_160622_phish_st_paul_rene_huemer_N4A8567.jpg" /><figcaption>Photo &copy; <a href='http://phish.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/038_160622_phish_st_paul_rene_huemer_N4A8567.jpg'>Rene Huemer</a></figcaption></figure></p> Mon, 05 Dec 2016 20:45:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@sausagemahoney) Blog Mystery Jam Monday Part 251 http://phi.sh/b/58459c57 http://phi.sh/b/58459c57 <p>Welcome to the 251st edition of Phish.Net&#39;s Mystery Jam Monday, the first and easiest of December.

of the Helping Friendly Podcast.]</em></p> <p>We at the <a href="http://www.hfpod.com">Helping Friendly Podcast</a> had the privilege of interviewing <a href="https://phish.net/user/MarcoEsc">Marco Walsh</a>, Board President of <a href="http://mbird.org/">The Mockingbird Foundation</a> and a prominent member of the Phish.Net community, who&#39;s given countless hours of his time over the years. You can access the interview <a href="http://www.hfpod.com/2016/11/episode-92-phishnet-conversation.html">here</a>.</p> <p>This interview gave us the chance to talk in depth about the history of the site and the Foundation, while hearing about the incredible work that all the volunteers have done for 20+ years. We touch on the evolution of the website, the community&rsquo;s relationship with the band, and of course, the <a href="https://phishcompanion.com/">Phish Companion</a>. Hey, it&#39;s the holidays! Pick one up for a friend or loved one.</p> <p>Marco also shares memories from his first show, <a href="http://phish.net/setlists/phish-april-17-1992-warfield-theatre-san-francisco-ca-usa.html">4.17.92</a> at the Warfield in San Francisco. We talk a bit about that tour and that show, and we play a few tracks from that night. A great memory for Marco and a good show to revisit.</p> <p>If you haven&rsquo;t listened to our podcast, we hope you give it a shot! We regularly combine the music of Phish with interesting guests from in and around the scene. You can find us on <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/helping-friendly-podcast/id660686469">iTunes</a> and <a href="http://twitter.com/hfpod">Twitter</a>. We&rsquo;re looking forward to many more collaborations with this team.</p> <p>Also, there&#39;s a contest! The Mockingbird Foundation donated one copy of <a href="http://www.phishcompanion.com/">the book</a> as well as a <a href="https://bottleneckgallery.com/products/aj-masthay-x-mockingbird-foundation-no-future-at-all-sparkle-foil">really cool poster</a>. All you have to do is share this post with your friends on Facebook and/or Twitter using #MbirdHFPod, and we&#39;ll pick two random winners (one for the book and one for the poster) on Monday, December 5.</p> <p>Thanks to <a href="https://phish.net/user/Lemuria">Ellis</a> and <a href="https://phish.net/user/Icculus">Charlie</a> as well for helping us get this together.

The reason for that is that Bowie represented something more than a musician and an actor. His works spoke to those who stand on the outside of society, feeling somewhat alien to the roles that they were supposed to play. There&rsquo;s a reason why the image most people have of David Bowie is of an alien; he sang about the society but never felt like he was in it....</p> Tue, 22 Nov 2016 22:00:46 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@[[zzyzx]]) Song Mockingbird goes Nationwide with Native Heritage http://phish.net/news/1479835106 http://phish.net/news/1479835106 <p>The all-volunteer phan-run Mockingbird Foundation has sent <a href="http://mbird.org/2016/11/nativeheritagegrants/">unsolicited $1,000 checks</a> to three Native American groups in celebration of Native American Heritage Month.

Do we have another savant on our hands? Apparently the hint &ndash; an image of the buildling on the cover of Pink Floyd&#39;s <em><a href="https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCiMLI9Xgf2vZsbSJ5Zt9YOhwFobd5SgJ">Animals</a> &ndash;</em> gave him a push in the right direction towards <a href="http://phish.net/jamcharts/song/run-like-an-antelope">Antelope</a>. But he didn&#39;t recognize (nor did he need to) that the hint had another layer to it: this week&#39;s clip was the <em>Buffalo Antelope</em>. Get it now? The MJM would be remiss if it didn&#39;t mention <a href="http://phish.net/user/Dog_Faced_Boy">@Dog_Faced_Boy</a>, who texted me a couple hours after MJM248 was posted with the correct answer &ndash; though his solving this week&#39;s MJM was completely unaided by his admin status, I asked him to withhold the answer unless no one else had solved it by this morning. See you next week for MJM249, when I&#39;ll throw yet another different style of MJM at you, and be sure to mark you calendars: On November 28th, 2016, the MJM will celebrate making it a quarter of the way to a <em>thousand </em>MJMs with a special MJM250 extravaganza, which may or may not have the most ridiculously awesome set of prizes ever given out for an MJM winner.</p> <p><a href="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1O37oWdEDs-PdvC23B-c2e260QvISVDH0JuYULJYI9bY/edit#gid=0"><img src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/mjm_results_2015.png" /></a></p> Mon, 14 Nov 2016 13:00:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@ucpete) Blog MSG Pre-Show Celebration with WaterWheel and Mockingbird - Dec. 30 http://phi.sh/b/582488cc http://phi.sh/b/582488cc <p>We&#39;re delighted to be partnering with <a href="https://www.facebook.com/thewaterwheelfoundation/">The WaterWheel Foundation</a> during <a href="https://www.facebook.com/phish/">Phish</a>&#39;s New Years run in a Pre-Show Celebration benefiting children&#39;s music education!</p> <p>Tickets go on sale Friday, November 11th @ Noon EST.</p> Thu, 10 Nov 2016 10:00:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@johnnyd) Blog Mystery Jam Monday Part 247 http://phi.sh/b/58203ffe http://phi.sh/b/58203ffe <p>Welcome to the 247th edition of Phish.Net&#39;s Mystery Jam Monday, the first and easiest of November. The winner will receive an MP3 download courtesy of our friends at <a href="http://livephish.com/">LivePhish.com</a> / <a href="http://nugs.net/">Nugs.Net</a>. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of the mystery jam clip. Each person gets one guess &ndash; if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday around 10 <small>AM</small> PT / 1 <small>PM</small> ET. Good luck!</p> <p><strong>Answer: </strong>Congrats to <a href="http://phish.net/user/HarborSeal">@HarborSeal</a> who solved this week&#39;s MJM in a mere 15 minutes, earning his second win. He didn&#39;t have time to notice that MJM247 took place on the 18 year anniversary of the <a href="http://phish.in/1998-11-07/mikes-song?t=12m">11/7/98 Mike&#39;s Song</a>, which took place in the same town celebrating their first World Series championship in 108 years &ndash; but he <em>did </em>notice that the jam featured this week was from the UIC run he had loaded onto his iPod a few weeks earlier. If you&#39;re feeling down today, perhaps hearing the entire <a href="http://phish.in/1998-11-07/mikes-song">11/7/98 Mike&#39;s</a> will cheer you up with its mix of funk, ambiance, and uplifting hose. The rest of that run ain&#39;t no slouch either. Stay tuned for MJM248, which will hopefully last at least 20 minutes before being solved!</p> <p><strong>Note: </strong>Just as a reminder, hints for the MJM are released, <em>if needed</em>,<em> </em>on Tuesday ~24 hours after MJM starts, and the answer is <em>always </em>revealed on Wednesday. If no one has answered correctly by ~48 hours after the MJM starts, the competition will be called and the answer will be revealed then. If it <em>has</em> been solved correctly before then, I tend to take my time on Wednesday posting the answer. If you&#39;re ever unsure if the MJM has been solved, and you don&#39;t see a particular answer with more thumbs up than the rest &ndash; a good (but not perfect!) indication it&#39;s been solved correctly &ndash; you can always check the MJM Results Spreadsheet (linked below the MJM every week). Even if I haven&#39;t updated the Blog post with the winner, I (almost) always update the spreadsheet with the winner as soon as I see the correct answer.</p> <p><a href="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1O37oWdEDs-PdvC23B-c2e260QvISVDH0JuYULJYI9bY/edit#gid=0"><img src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/mjm_results_2015.png" style="float:left" /></a></p> Mon, 07 Nov 2016 13:00:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@ucpete) Blog Five Years Song History http://phish.net/song/five-years http://phish.net/song/five-years <p>Five years.
