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 opening was in deference to Pink Floud who had played at Birmingham's Legion Field the night before. http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/pink-floyd/1994/legion-field-stadium-birmingham-al-33d764dd.html
/> My friends and I had 4th row, center. We saw Trey and Mike on the floor several rows back during intermission, sitting there anonymous like. We told them we dug their shit, jams, etc., and hoped for a good show from them the next night. Very casual....
5 Points was a TINY venue, and Phish was still not a huge draw back them in the Deep South. That place held maybe 750 peeps at the most...maybe. Fire code was prob more like 500..
Opening was delayed due to the trouble of getting a disco ball to hang and spin correctly, but then it quickly kicked in with the homage to Pink Floyd. From there, I was way too baked and 3 feet away from Trey and the dudes to know what happened next. Who cares at that point, right? Several doobies later, and Oteil (OMG!!) is on stage jamming. I'm there, against the stage, basically in a small bar, seeing the dudes kill it. No hassle, no pushing, no frenzy. Easy in, easy to the bathroom, easy back to center stage. Set list... Whatevs. The vibe and setting were awesome, with the added bonus of having seen the boys at the Pink Floyd show (I had better seats!!) the night before!!
