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.

First set highlights include some great debuts and some notable editions of classic Phish: Walk Away is spicy, No Dogs Allowed is great and includes a sizable portion of what we know today as Divided Sky.
The Mike's has a cool intro, and leads into a pretty Hydrogen which is, as is now customary, the bridge to Weekapaug (another debut). This Weekapaug is slow and fairly unexceptional.
Lizards is played well, as is On Your Way Down, a definite highlight of the show. Everything else is pretty standard, although the Fire has a little extra something on it, what with the horns adding a bit of flavor to the mix. Oh, I almost forgot, the Jam that precedes the show is not to be overlooked. It's a very good Jam.
The second set contains a discordant and furious Curtain With -> DEG . It's definitely the highlight of the show, which you likely already know, because you're reading this page and noticing the recommended version in the setlist.
Everything else is somewhat skippable, but if you're a Harry Hood fan, that would certainly warrant a look.
I'd give this show 4 stars as a show in 1988. There's definitely enough here to give it a listen, but this is a very long show, and ultimately may not be able to hold your attention throughout the somewhat (surprisingly) dull third set.
