I have been lucky enough to catch 11 of the shows this summer, and this second set was one of the best. Both Ghosts of the Forrest songs are terrible and need to be dropped STAT (genuinely, Drift Sleeping contains the lamest, cheesiest, and most sophomoric lyrics ever sung by this band--------paging Dr. T. Marshall, please come to the ER for a lyrical resuscitation ) but even in spite of this (now regular) strike against the set, the playing and jamming of virtually every other piece of the show felt above average.LIAR!
I'm biased due to hometown crowd at Camden 3, and I really liked the second sets of both Bangors, but both second sets of Connecticut contained some super musical behavior and shouldnt be overlooked---I havent relistened, but this night 2 show was just flexibly sick throughout the set. Definitely one of the best I caught. And that encore. I pumped my fist. You were there, the night of the Saw It aKung.
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.
