Memories and Adeline were performed without microphones. During the pause in Guelah, Trey welcomed everyone to the Hemp Festival (“Free the weed!” Mike exclaimed). Magilla contained a Wedding March tease from Trey. After Runaway Jim, Trey introduced “a very famous person” in the audience, John Basili. “Stephen King was at a gig recently,” he noted, “but this is much more exciting.” Coil contained a Linus and Lucy tease.

Man....I tell you....Madison, WI is *THE* place to see Phish. This really cool movie theatre called the Barrymore. WOW!!!!!! WHAT A SHOW!!!!!!!
I was rendered completely speechless after the first set. I'll have to figure out some sort of setlist, something which I can't do right this sec.
First of all, the band is so much tighter than I ever remember them being. They really work together well. They have been working on new jams or something, because they took songs places I've never heard them go before. For example, Trey's solo in Divided Sky. I have NEVER heard him go off as insanely and for as long as he did at that show. He went places I never thought possible! Paige gave quite a contribution too on several tunes. Caverns has been sounding good lately. Oh...and there was a Suzy that never ended with solos and jams (I think I can hear when the jams are written and when they are improvised. I'm not positive, but I feel like I have some sort of sense of it from seeing them so many times.) like I've never heard in my life. I have NEVER danced with such intensity!!
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 over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
