The Phish.net setlists file's show notes (the notes beneath every setlist) mention that a performance (a show) was released officially by Phish some, but not all, of the time. Because all Phish shows from December 31, 2002, forward have been made available for download via LivePhish.com, we have not noted every single "post-hiatus" (post-2001) show as a "release" in the show notes of such shows. We have, however, noted in the show notes of the setlists those shows dated prior to 12/31/2002 that have been made available for download (or otherwise released by Phish) as a LivePhish Archival Release.
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 over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
