Since the deafening roar last Tuesday night as the boys took the stage, I have felt the energy and anticipation from the crowd growing with every show. By Sunday it was electric and carried all the way through set break. But as the evening progressed it was clear this night was not going to rage all night. But that was alright, there is energy controlled in soft melodies that can’t be heard from a wall of sound!SHIT! So sorry. There will be MORE.
“More” was an unexpected encore, but picked up nicely, I wasn’t satiated but was satisfied and privileged the stars had aligned and I had seen the first 5 nights of a great start to Fall tour and run up to Halloween. Our heroes put down their instruments, New Hampshire is a long way from the Mothership, we left...
30 mins later at an unbelievably long red light I absent mindedly looked at my phone and reviewed the setlist. Oh the horror!!! “Boy! Man? GOD! Sh....”
I felt punched in the gut, I wanted to cry, wasn’t it me that hours before was calling for a YEM closer, what better way to have capped 5 days of growing excitement?! How better to have returned to reality with the memory of unabashed joy and shared release of a YEM closer in this hallowed hall? Cruel, cruel world!! Pity me and remember.,,
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 just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
