DenverDoug I’m not sure of the intent of this comment but I appreciate your sharing. First, if the outside world is awful to you then you are just as responsible for that as anything that happens at phish because phish is nothing more than a part of this world. The phish scene is not separate from anything. There was a racist terrorist attack at the Gorge. We know this already. I’m not sure why everyone seems defensive about this. We can all learn from another’s perspective and if fans of color have been demeaned or marginalized in our community then I want to know about it. I want to take responsibility for it. And I want to help us all to do better going forward. That’s part of my contribution to our scene. We can love something or someone dearly and still acknowledge the imperfections. It doesn’t subtract from the glory, it makes the glory of the music and the scene even more real. To paraphrase Bob Dylan, “there’s nothing political about talking about oppression of people” 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.
