I am going to politely disagree with the idea that any Phish fan has anything to gain by reading this article.dude that started pitchfork likes phish
She leads by saying "I have been unfair" to Phish, then continues to be unfair to them for the remainder of the article. She also isn't nearly as funny as she thinks she is.

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
