Phish Lights Hampton Up With "Dudes"

There is nothing surprising about this. I'd say 100:1 is an exaggeration, but it doesn't matter.



Phish shows and jam bands don't really attract women, but there's nothing revealing about this. No one goes to these shows to meet women. They go for the music. They go to dance. I'm not sure why the author thought this to be unique, but he did.

The article also linked this photo.



What's telling here is the age of the fans. I, too, was one of those kids out there. I fondly remember my tye-dye shirts, hemp necklaces and long hair, but I always knew that I was the youngest. The whole scene has changed a lot in the past 10 years and most of the original Phishheads and jambanders have grown up (or moved to Korea), so these dudes are the next wave. (H/T to Coug)

I spent a few months on tour with Phish back in my youth.

I don't remember the music at all, but I definitely remember the drugs!
