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.

The first set is studded with gems too: Stash, Light Up, the whole shebang. Even Summer of '89, which many fans openly despise, fits right in here - Trey's solo is emotionally open and lively. The jam still hasn't quite found its final shape, I think, nor its ideal length, but it's pretty and admirably forthright (not to mention a clever left turn away from the rhythmic tempo of the vocal section).
Don't let anyone tell you the early segue out of this (goopy, funky) Tweezer is a problem. (It might be a disappointment, but that's got more to do with the listener than the music...) It's all part of the bigger picture. After one listen I think this second set is stronger, end-to-end, than any closing set of 2009, and worthy of the already-epic Summer of '10.
