2014 Dick's #1 - Bucket of Laughs

Posted Aug 30, 2014 4:00 pm by pzerbo - 0 comments Link:

Our usually devoted recap team on site is still in recovery mode from the fun last night at Dick's. We'll be providing your regular recap coverage in a more reflective mode, when time allows us to give last night's show the proper treatment it deserves. In the interim, we invite you to catch up on the gig over at our friends at JamBase, and enjoy some photos from the gig. Whether watching at home or here on site, we wish everyone a great show tonight!

Denver Vinyasa between Dicks' 2&3

Posted Aug 29, 2014 3:06 pm by Lemuria - 2 comments Link:

If you're attending the Dick's shows this weekend in Denver, think ahead to Sunday afternoon. You've raged two nights, and you've had two mornings sleeping in, emerging for some variety of breakfast beverage, and following that somewhat later by an impressive tour lunch. But you have another show to go, so now's the time to revive and rejunevate, building your stamina and rebuilding your focus, while helping fund music education for children.

From 1:30 to 3pm, on Sunday August 31, Tracy Stoneker and Brooke Carlson will be leading another session of Surrender to the Flow, yoga accompanied by Phish recordings. All proceeds benefit the Mockingbird Foundation and Street Yoga. Sign up at And breeeeathe....

Ranking the Jams of Summer

Posted Aug 27, 2014 7:00 am by jwelsh8 - 54 comments Link:

With Dick's mere days ahead, we thought we'd give the pot a little stir and provoke some discussion around the finest jams of summer tour proper.

There's an embarrassment of riches to pick from -- from the varied meanderings of the "Randalls Chalk Dust" to the dad-rock majesty of the Northerly "Wedge" to the trifecta of jamming "Fuegos" -- and we encourage you to rank 'em up below the fold and discuss in the comments. We've started you out with the staff's top ten, but please feel free to add your own favorites so people can vote those up as well. Enjoy!


Mystery Jam Monday Part 183

Posted Aug 25, 2014 1:35 pm by bl002e - 26 comments Link:, posted in the Audio category (1489 listens)

Welcome to the 183rd episode of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday. The winner will receive an MP3 download courtesy of our friends at / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of the mystery jam clip. Each person gets one guess per day, with the second “day” starting after I post the hint. A hint will be posted on Tuesday if necessary, with the answer to follow on Wednesday. Good luck!

Answer: For the second MJM in a row, we have a first-time winner. @VanNicky made quick work out of this week's clip and knew it came from the 8/25/12 Chalk Dust Torture. All-Time MJM Results

Coventry: Ten Years Later

Posted Aug 14, 2014 12:01 am by Icculus - 87 comments Link:

It was ten years ago, on August 14, 2004, when Phish began one of the most anticipated and emotionally-charged concerts of their career. The very word “Coventry” is a deeply meaningful, if not painful, trigger among fans, given the festival's extraordinary and tragic circumstances. Coventry’s music is full of staggering contradictions, in that it is at times ponderous and exciting, dour and joyful, miserable and soul-expanding. The art of Coventry is revisited here not only in honor of its 10th Anniversary, but also out of love for Phish and their music, warts and all.

In the event you don’t know the background of Phish’s shows in Coventry, here’s the short version: The shows were billed as the last shows that Phish would play. Ever.

Take a moment to breathe that in.


Mbird Issues APB for Old Photos!

Posted Aug 07, 2014 2:30 pm by Lemuria - 11 comments Link:

The Mockingbird Foundation has issued an all-points bulletin seeking old photos of Phish. Now that there's a pause in touring, we're asking you to climb into your closets, break out the shoeboxes, crack open the photo albums, and help us out. We're looking for anything, everything, but especially '83 to '97, the 15 years before there WAS a Mockingbird Foundation. (No need to hesitate on newer stuff - we'll consider anything - but we need to fill gaps in early years, asap!)

And not just you, because there's a chance we've asked you before: We beg, plead, with you to contact other Phish fans you know - perhaps, even, this is a chance to reach out to phans you used to know or travel with but haven't seen in awhile. Find 'em on Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace (remember that?), Google+ (remember that?), or just Google stalk them until you find them. Even if you don't have anyone in mind, we hope you'll spread this APB far and wide - tweet it, post it, send it anywhere - all points of contact, please! :)

As an incentive...
