I'm shocked people still like Phish

I wonder how many charges will stick since most of the probable cause will be "attending a Phish concert".

/Profiling isn't just for racism.

Wow, drugs at a Phish concert. Thats like seeing 12 year old girls at a Beiber concert.

I feel safer now that these people now have, in addition to poor taste in music, less recreational drugs, and more legal hassles and fines ahead of them.

God bless 'murca, especially the police state that is NJ.

My neighbors travel all over the country to see them in concert.  On occasion they'll drive upwards of 20 hours or more, one way.

The really sad part is that all those substances are Schedule 1, meaning they have "no medical use and have a high potential for abuse". I've never known anyone addicted to acid or shrooms.

Reminds me of a story from some time ago about a woman who gets arrested for a small quantity of mushrooms.  She writes that part of the plea deal included drug treatment programs, and "that was waived, which was a shame because I would REALLY love to see what mushroom rehab looks like"

This is a chair.  Chairs sit on the ground.  They don't fly and they don't talk.

This is a dog.  Dogs are animals.  They run around and bark.  They aren't purple and they don't quote eastern philosophy.

This is the sky.  The sky is blue, and the big yellow thing is called the sun.  The sky is sometimes red, but it is never plaid.  You can't taste the sun.  Even if you could, it would not taste like strawberries.

I had to go look at the setlist to find out they didn't even do a "musical costume" for 'ween this year.  Phish done jumped the shark man.

Throw in a six-minute vacuum jam, and I think you may have just written the newest Phish tune.

Playing all the songs they're considering for their next album as the 2nd set doesn't count? Okay.

I love Phish. Yes, the fandom is really easy to mock, yes, there's lots of drugs being taken at shows --some of them by me-- but damn! they play 2:45 - 3:10 shows, don't have opening acts, the setlist changes every show so there's always going to be a surprise song or two, they're virtuoso musicians who can play a bunch of different styles correctly and with the right feel, Trey is a really good songwriter and most of the people that show up at the shows are more tuned in to what's happening in the moment than any fandom I've ever experienced.

I just ignore all the spun-out 17 year olds who are only there to score drugs and the pathetic Grateful Dead losers who complain constantly that Phish doesn't sound like the Dead in 1972 or 1977 or whenever but still show up hoping Phish will cover a Dead tune.

Police conducted surveillance and undercover operations from Thursday through Saturday


 Sounds like a brillant use of tax dollars and resources.  It's a good thing there's no other criminal elements in Atlantic City to worry about.   The new age bookstores and  Whole Foods will finally be safe to walk around in again.

Added bonus of chasing off a huge following of traveling bourgeoisie suburbanite Trustafarians with lots of disposable income to spend in your city (or at least their family's disposable income).   Let's make sure they never come here again.

I think that's the smallest article I've ever seen? Out of 45 people no one managed to do anything notable? What's really shocking is they actually found 2 kinds of lsd. Haven't seen that around here in years, not that I've been actively looking.

Did they find any gambling? Letters of transit?

Probably same LSD, different delivery method. Blotter takes more time to kick in, than sugar cubes. Getting dosed in the eyes is *much* faster.

Or so I'm told...

It was not a particularly drug infested run. Security and the emergency services had a very easy couple of nights. Only guy I saw on a stretcher was at least 50 and it looked like he was just exhausted. I don't think I saw a single cop.

Everyone loves the covers. Me included.

Playing nearly every song they are even considering for the next album live was extraordinary. It took huge balls to do that and I don't think there are any other bands that big who would even consider it. It was only possible because they have been spending an insane amount of time practicing. Which is also rare for a band 30 years old.

It was a very personal and bold choice this year. They are in a very specific place right now. A lot of the gloss is being removed from the shows. I think the best thing right now with Phish is to listen to the four of them playing together more than anything else. It's all about them spending time re-connecting after 30 years. Back to basics again.

I hear you.  I had a lot of fun at Phish shows in the 90's when they/I were less serious about life/music.  I hope it is still fun today.  The cover set was always just fun, but I can see where the "pressure" over what might sap the joy out of the thing.

It's taken a while to recover from the grim Trey-as-Oxy-addict years of 2003-2004, but I watch almost all of the webcasts and go to see them when I can (last gig: Hollywood Bowl this past August) and they're in good spirits, Trey even started talking to the audience again. I just wish the playing on the fall tour was a little tighter; I can understand flubs on Divided Sky, on Moma Dance, not so much.

I was at the 8 Festival in Indio and my heart sank when they announced the morning of the show that the musical costume was going to be Exile on Main Street. I love the Stones, but I think that album is waaaaaaaay overrated compared to Sticky Fingers (see also: London Calling vs. the kick-ass Give 'em Enough Rope for The Clash and the mediocre Kid A vs. the masterpiece that is OK Computer for Radiohead), I ended up in the bar for most of the set. I really wanted them to do King Crimson's Larks Tongues in Aspic, lots of room for improv there.

there's a "crackhouse" law in texas that basically states if the police have probable cause to suspect that at least 5 people have drugs in a facility, then the whole show/event is shut down.
 
2013-11-06 07:11:48 AM  
I went to a Phish show a couple years ago and had the best time. A walked into a pot cloud and this girl emerged, kissed me, and told me I was beautiful. The husband also dropped his wallet and a guy chased us down to return it. I think I sat in the grass for most of the show - after eating gooballs and then french fries smothered with cheese - lots of fun.

Thank you. That "theory of everything" is more Phish than Phish.
