For the second consecutive year Trey played an acoustic set at this benefit for the Tibet House. Trey announced that he had finally settled on the name of the tune we now know as The Inlaw Josie Wales which along with Farmhouse was performed solo, acoustic. Trey’s debut cover of Tom Waits’ House Where Nobody Lives featured David Byrne on accordion. Collaborations continued throughout the evening, with Trey adding both acoustic and electric guitars for an instrumental piece with Nawang Khechog and R. Carlos Nakai, then acoustic guitar with Rufus Wainwright, Patti Smith and others on When Will I Be Loved? Trey joined Philip Glass on the debut of Third Street that was announced as a new original that he and Glass had co-written earlier that week. Before the show finale, Patti Smith said: “I’d like to thank all of you Phish fans” to the cheers of the balcony. The show closed with Patti Smith leading her original “People Have the Power” that included Trey on electric guitar, David Byrne, Patti Smith, Angelique Kidjo, Virginia Rodrigues, and Rufus Wainwright.

dscott Beautiful. Magical. This show makes my hair stand on end every time I listen to it...and I do listen to it over and over. Mankind may never produce a more truthful lyric than House Where Nobody Lives, and Trey's wistful delivery opens the floodgates every time. Every time.
