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 Gin>Foam opening combo is really tight and gets things started off on the right foot with 25 minutes of solid music. The Samson Variation is a fun little ditty, and then you have a whole stretch of standard Summer 97 songs in Dirt, Vultures, and MMGAMOIO. The Twist through LxL segment is definitely the highlight of the first set, check out this segment for sure. Standard Zero set closer.
Second set, although well-played, is a little awkward in song choice and in jamming, which was more sparse than night one. Nothing really stands out as "must hear," but all of the songs were well-played and make for a good set of music. A little odd to have the acapella song and then the set closer. Pretty standard encore as well. If I were revisiting Summer 97 shows, this one would probably fall a little lower on the list overall, since there are so many great shows to choose from.
