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 EdwardGRobinson
Phish always drops the alien abduction on the Gorge, and this show is further evidence of that trend. I was sad I couldn't make it up there this year, but apparently babies require constant supervision. Excited that I got the chance to webcast, which is not something I am normally super into.
Blown away by the show. Interesting setlist, bustouts, lots of stage banter and shenanigans (of the good variety), and excellent playing by the band. The webcast doesn't do the beauty of this venue justice, or the experience of being out there in what is certainly the most awe inspiring venue in the country.
Love the McGrupp through Melt. The entire second set is top notch. Crosseyed through Mango is really "The Main Event", but the rest of the set is, by no means, just filler. I am not normally a Character Zero guy, but the howling at the moon bit makes this one more than just the standard "big rock and roll" ending.
Must hear stuff. I haven't listened to the entire tour so I wont place any declarative "best of" statements in this review, but this show will stand up against just about anything you throw at it.
Highly recommended. Five Stars. Go to the Gorge next time. Can't be missed.
Can't wait for Bill Graham next week. Thanks, Phish, for playing some dates I can take the train to and get home afterwards. Please play a few more years so I can take my boys someday.
