The volunteer who was supposed to recap last night's show for this blog emailed us around 4:30pm to apologize for not sending us a recap, remarking that after five nights his "synapses burned." This site relies entirely on volunteers to recap shows and also to post those recaps to this blog, so we are entirely at their mercy for such content.
I've not heard enough of last night's show to recap it myself, however,
I am informed and believe, and thereon allege, that it was a demonstrably below "average-typically-great" Phish show, and that only the "A Song I Heard The Ocean Sing" is worth hearing again.
Now that said, I also heard that the ASIHTOS performed last night is inarguably a jamchartworthy version and perhaps among the greatest versions in Phish history. And in fact, I am listening to it right now, courtesy of LivePhish, and I fully agree that it has merit, and I can assure you, with the most extreme prejudice, that the jamcharts team will add it to the jamcharts. (Btw, please support LivePhish; a portion of LivePhish proceeds benefits Mockingbird.)
In any event, I invite and encourage you in the strongest possible terms to recap last night's show yourself in the "Comments" section below. The title of this "recap" is in honor of Phishnet user @AbongIheardMyLandlordFling, and of course the stellar version of ASIHTOS performed last night, and lo and behold, user @AbongIheardMyLandlordFling appears to have been in attendance last night, and so I particularly encourage him, or her, to recap last night's show in the "Comments." -charlie

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 over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
