2/24/03 TwistFirst off, good job. Second, It pained me to see Split Open and Melt referenced as SOAMelt when that treatment should be reserved for the lesser SOAMule. Then it got me thinking about how many times they actually played SOAM and SOAMule in the same show. Turns out it was 33 (Thanks ZZYZX Show Finder!) and the breakdown is below. Last time was 1/3/15. Was there ever a time a person was scribbling the setlist during the show and accidentally wrote down "SOAM" twice, realized the mistake, was too wasted to remember which song was performed first, and stubbornly declined to request the help of other showgoers in an attempt to prove to themself that they could remember on their own? Perhaps Phish's ever-growing songbook is not the reason it has been nearly 6 years without a SOAM/SOAMule pairing. Maybe Trey has already pondered this hypothetical setlist scribbler and has decided to take pity on them.
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.
