Exactly 25 years after the audience tied the band 1-1 in a chess rivalry, Phish challenges YOU to a rematch as part of a special New Year’s Eve Dinner And A Movie. We’ll be presenting Phish’s first New Year’s Eve show from Madison Square Garden — 12/31/95 — in its entirety, beginning at 8:30 pm ET at webcast.livephish.com.

We’ve teamed up with the fine folks at Chess.com to host the Band vs. Audience online chess game which will start right at the top of the show and move at a decent clip. In short, fans will have 5 minutes to move their piece (the band will have no more than that as well). At the end of 5 minutes, whichever move has the most votes is the ‘audience’ move. Stick around during the set breaks as the band joins in from their various homes, playing a few moves and providing scintillating commentary on the game.

To join the audience in voting for moves against the band, you will first need to become a member of Chess.com. It is free and you can register at chess.com/register. After you verify your account by email, join the official club for the audience side at the link in profile. We will post and send out the actual game link on 12/31.

To pace yourself over a long evening, we present some chess cheese board recipes for extended grazing. Our friend Marissa Mullen (@thatcheeseplate) put together two options — “Olive Cheese Dreams” and “Billy Bries” — with an easy ‘cheese by numbers’ guide. Feel free to swap out any of the ingredients if there’s something else you prefer. Pair with the bubbly of your choice. For dessert, chessboard cookies! Recipes are at livephi.sh/chessmenu.

For this final webcast of the year, our beneficiary will be none other than The WaterWheel Foundation itself. Since 1997, the band and their fans have collaborated on a nationwide charitable endeavor by raising funds and donating the proceeds across the country. This year alone, collectively we have raised and donated nearly $750,000 to 27 different nonprofits during the Dinner and a Movie series. Join us in continuing to support those in need.

This is THE show that got me into phish. It’s incredible they are playing the video tonight. Maybe it’s existed but I never knew. There isn’t a single show for dmb so this is truly unique to me. Seeing the video of this show is really something else. That opening run is unreal to me. Every note is just exactly as i imagine they should be.

Another archival release coming next week. General consensus is that it’s a show from Kansas.

Listened to the song Esther for the first time in a long while. I love the story so much.
