mgolia6 Wow!! First, what a tribute to your dear friend. You nailed it. And, I can tell you (what you already know) that last night unequivocally was a masterpiece of a show. You were meant to recap that show, clearly. You had the grace and mastery of words to somehow encapsulate what transpired and to do it with the command of a master wordsmith (yeah there were a few masters in there).

I alluded in a comment earlier to the collective consciousness of a peak experience. The body begins to produce dopamine, seratonin, oxytocin, etc…and when this happens you have what some call a religious experience. When these chemicals stack themselves one upon the other a mystical thing happens, the body recognizes the birth of these neurochemicals in those around us and we get enveloped in a collective “hug!”

Put another way, it feels like your friend Byron was reaching down to hug us all last night. He spoke through the music, through the emotion, through the energy to fill our cups, collectively. Thanks for getting vulnerable here as well as putting together a kick ass recap and taking us to Church. 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.
