Phish tribute band, PHIX,
is happy to announce a busy second half of December with a small theatre run
in their home state of Colorado, culminating in the Third Annual Denver Holiday
Benefit on Saturday, December 16th. Fellow Colorado freakers, Young and in the Gutter (featuring
members of Shanti Groove,)
will open the show. This marks the fourth benefit show that Phix has held for
the Mockingbird Foundation, the first of which was held at Phish-spawning ground
Nectar's in Burlington,
VT in 2004.
The band is also very pleased to announce that they'll be playing through most
of California at the end of the month leading up to a special New Year's Eve
show in Ashland, OR. Like last year's New Years run (which was on the East Coast)
Phix will be performing a complete Gamehendge on the 30th (San Francisco) and
recreating a classic Phish NYE Setlist on the 31st (Ashland). Check out the
Phix Web site
for details on all shows.

More about the Mockingbird Foundation
The Mockingbird Foundation is the leading provider of historical information about the band Phish and its music. Since its inception in 1996, the Foundation has been operated entirely by volunteer fans of the band, without any salaries or paid staff. It fundraises for music education for children by celebrating the music of Phish through books, innovative recordings, creative donation premiums, and special events for the Phish fan community. Mockingbird funds are distributed twice per year through a two-tiered application process that is one of the most competitive in the country, able to fund fewer than one percent (1%) of the initial inquiries received. The process has so far provided 150 grants, in 36 states, totaling $500,134.
