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.

Trey is really combing the depths of the sonic ocean with his pedals right now, and I love it. Sometimes the tension and discordance become a lot to take, but he knows exactly what he's doing and leads the listener to safety. It's a new style of musical leadership for him. Rather than shredding and wailing, of which he's admittedly a master, he's creating new textures and landscapes and inviting his bandmates and the listener to follow. Sometimes it works, sometimes not as much, but it's intriguing to hear him putting things in test tubes and hearing what happens.
Even Number Line and Character Zero have weird, effects-laden jams that stand out from the typical renditions. Don't overlook this show because it's a festival. They typically play crowd-pleasers at these affairs, and understandably so. There might be new listeners in the audience and they want people to have a good time. This was a little different and well worth hearing for those of us who crave strange and beautiful Phish music. Trey was really jazzed about the show when they took a bow. I can't wait to hear what they cook up on Sunday.
