Complete BS article. The topic should begin and end with this quote from Trey in the 2016 where he basically says he wants the shows apolitical. Once again, white liberals ruin everything by telling us what non whites should be offended by. The arrogance is astounding but not surprising. Probably why the scene is so weak the past few years. Anyway, here’s the quote from rolling stone May 26 2016.

Trey when asked about the election.

“I’m watching with curiosity, but I have a very strong resistance to musicians taking a side. Because I feel like music is the one thing in my life that, when the band is playing, it feels so spiritual and so open to inviting everyone into the party that anything where it sounds like I’m being the thought police, or Phish as a band, as an entity, where it’s like, “You should think this way,” or “You should vote for this guy.” Or “If you love Ted Cruz, you should feel bad.” I don’t feel that way. I feel like what we do for a living is by its nature the antidote to that kind of thing, that this is a place where you come for spirit and not politics. So that’s why, if you actually look closely, I haven’t publicly supported anyone.”
You seem to be responding to this blog post, but it is unclear whether your critique ("Complete BS article") also includes the paper we authored?

Interesting that you picked Trey to make your obviously don't follow Fishman on social media ;) At the end of the day, each of them, like each of us, is human, and I certainly believe it is essential to our humanity to be willing to look at the facts, and examine our opinions and assumptions in light of new information.

Here is a fact: PHRE has been given space to table inside the venue since 2018, including every stop on last summer's tour.
Name yourself! ????. I clearly did not mean the rolling stone article. I love fishman to death 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.
