Lol. Phish fan checking in. I've probably seen them two dozen times over the last 22 years, which for a normal band would sound like a lot, but makes me inexperienced as far as people that do that kind of thing go. There really isn't much of a thing as a phishhead anymore. In the 90s the scene was ridiculous. Now? It's a bunch of dudes in their 30s, 40s, and 50s who have jobs and can afford $100/ticket. There's no shakedown, no grilled cheese purveyors, no acid fueled devil stick wielders. It's basically just people there to see the show. On the one hand it's nice to not have to deal with that. On the other it's sort of sad that a subculture has died. But the subculture was always fake anyway, and probably why it was so annoying, since it was essentially dead heads trying to keep that scene alive without regard to the fact it was a different band.

Hahaha. That sounds unbearable. Last year I saw this girl in concert, Holly Bowling, who transcribes love versions of Phish and Dead tunes for classical piano. Even if you hate the music, it's such an incredible feat it's hard not to be impressed. Of the 50 or so people on the audience at this little Hollywood club 49 we're quietly and politely enjoying a piano concert, and one was dancing and screaming every 5 minutes. Those people ruin everything, and I can imagine that a Dead cover band would be 100% that type. So horrible.

There are also hygiene issues.

What do you mean patchouli isn't a substitute for bathing?
