Brain_of_Brass I so appreciate this detailed review of the show. It's a remarkable recap.
Raleigh was only my fourth time seeing Phish. As a sexagenarian, I had long ago given up on attending most crowded events. But my son, who had been subjected to my off-beat music choices through his childhood, has turned the tables on me. He has returned all the funk, jazz, prog rock and more with one quartet of amazing musicians and people.
He turned me into a fan by taking me in 2019 to the second of three gigs (he went to all of them). I return for more when I can.
Your review captured why I ignore what work demands, body aches, the weather and finances are telling me ... and just go.
From children to folks older than me (albeit not many), I feel at home with y'all at each concert.
The music is exceptional and the people connect with each other with humanity that I had been missing for some time.
Thanks for writing with such care and kindness. It means a lot to me, as do you folks.
I've had a "brain of brass," but because of people like you, I'm a fan at last. 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.
