HenryHolland I was a Phish nOOb when Coventry came around, I'd only been in to the band since late 2002 and only had 5 shows on my stats (a bad Chula Vista show, and much better shows at Brooklyn > SPAC, the best being the aforementioned 6/19/04). I was really bummed that a band I'd quickly come to love was going to break up amid bad vibes, drug problems and general burn out.

I watched the Coventry simulcast at a very nice theater in San Diego and it just got sadder and sadder. Yes, there were musical highlights, but there was a horrible, defeated vibe about the whole thing. My main memory is watching Trey walk on stage (before the second set, first day I think) and he was scratching himself like crazy (i.e. he was on opiates big time). The guy next to me laughed and said "Haha Trey is wasted". About 15 minutes in to the music and he leaned over and said "Oh my god, Trey is wasted".

The other moment I take away is them butchering my favorite Phish song (The Curtain With) so badly that they had to re-start it > finishing > the camera back stage catching Trey bursting in to tears as he left the stage area. 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.
