Imagine being a white woman gentrifying San Francisco in the 90’s and finding refuge in the punk scene and actually being this pretentious and emphasizing race at a Phish show. Sorry but this is pure self indulgent garbage. It reads as a person so confident that their brand of music is so superior that the notion that any music to the antithesis must be beneath their taste. Sorry but punk rock is about as interesting as white brand. The scene is filled with pseudo intellectual asshats that think style can make up for lack of talent.Our crowd is still mostly white and so what. People of all races can choose to like or dislike whatever music. I saw Kool and the Gang last night and the crowd was 80% black, but I still had a great time as a white fan. I will never let anyone try to divide us...as much as they try.
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.
