TREY: Welcome! [Malicious laughter] Welcome, everybody. Happy Halloween. We just wanted to get you started off right here so before we get rolling, I just want to make sure everybody knows what they need to do to keep in tune with the whole thing here tonight. [backing vocals begin] Because, we don’t want anybody doing anything too weird or too scary. It could get kind of weird later on so just to make sure, I hope that everybody is planning on following what’s written in a very special book…
Some of you may have read this book, and if you really just keeping mind what it says in the book, nothing will get too weird during the night, everything should be fine. Because, you know, this is a great book. For those of you who haven’t read it, maybe you can find a friend, ask what it says. It’s really a special book. It’s a deep and meaningful, wonderful book. It’s a great, it’s really an incredible, magical, special, wonderful, beautiful, incredible book. I mean, it saved me so many times in the past. I know when things get really weird tonight, I’m sure this book can save you from too much weirdness. It’s such a powerful, incredible, special, magical book.
Wait a minute! I don’t think it’s gonna work tonight! It’s too weird! I feel too many evil Halloween spirits in the air! The book can’t take it! The book is getting its ass kicked! The book is not gonna make it through the night! But if you read the book, it’s kind of a battle between the book and the evil spirits! Book! Spirits! Book! Spirits! Book! Spirits! Booooook!
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.
