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.

Set 2 leads off with Wolfman's Brother, which is a nice dose of funk; the set basically nosedives from there (*man*, Jennifer Dances is a bad song), but then comes a strong one-two punch to save things. First up is Gin, whose jam books along at a sharp pace before heading into ambient waters, Trey and Page helping create a dreamlike, otherworldly atmosphere, Fish and Mike keeping a foot in the real world (Fish, in particular, does some really interesting work). Simple then slides in to complete the combination, and while it's not the best Simple ever or anything, it's comes to a gentle ending and serves as a nice topper to the previous jam. The band throws out four straight rockers as set enders and encore.
A reasonably good show, with two must-hear jams, but (like much of this month) kind of uneven. Still, 12/99 has its own sound, and if you like it, you are pretty much guaranteed to like this show.
