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.
Review by Miguelito
The first of these is the Bathtub Gin, making its first appearance of the tour. And it comes back raging! While not even close to my favorite version, it’s a very enjoyable one and a welcome return to the lineup. It’s worth noting too that PYITE preceded Gin, also making its tour debut. A bit later we get a Forbin’s > Mockingbird that is always worth listening to, and has an interesting narration focused on a Spirit Beam before heading into Gamehenge.
The next is the 1-2 set II opening sequence of The Curtain > Tweezer. I love this opening combo. The Tweezer is relatively short but don’t let that dissuade you from giving it a listen. Like the Gin, this isn’t a stellar version, or even close to being best from this tour, but it’s got some interesting moments and I like how it dissolves into Lifeboy. The CDT and Coil are both very solid and enjoyable. The CDT is a bit extended, which is notable since it’ll be the longest version of the year until NYE.
The encore tunes, with the horns, are fun and it’s a shame they didn’t join them earlier on. I particularly like the Ya Mar here but the Cavern is pretty great too. In all, this is fun, solid show that has a few real highlights but doesn’t really break any new ground.
