Review by thumpasaurus

thumpasaurus I dont see how an objective review can be made without actually being at the show. I look at every concert (last night was #94) as an individual creation, existential in its own right. To compare shows and tours is just a bunch of semantic jargon that is tedious and unnecessary. A Phish show to me is something that is not quantifiable. No matter how hard you try to disect it with fluffy word matter, in the end it is nothing but an ethereal existential experience.
For every single person there, I can safely say we all had the time of our lives. There was such a serenity present being amongst so many beautiful people. This is how I calculate a show, by its beauty. For beauty is the gage in which all art should be judged, not boring metrics.


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.
