Hidden in 20 bags will be golden tickets.

The bags cost $30 and will benefit Food Patriots, a charity designed to educate the next generation about the importance of healthy, sustainable eating. Summer Camp will take place from May 25-27.

These buffoons can’t help themselves can they? It’s actually quite embarrassing really. Bad enough they rip off the Phish sound, song writing, show structure, etc but now their marketing? Try and be creative, use a little energy to push your own ideas. Quit wishing you are Phish and concentrate on being yourselves!

Billy, calm down, your band is still good. No need to go in to your little tirade about how much you hate UM. I don’t find anything whatsoever similar with Phish and UM’s live shows. ( 50+ Phish shows) Phish is in there own stratosphere, UM do their thing, and I would say are much more unpredictable than Phish. Cinninger has his own very unique guitar style. No need to compare the two at all. They both are very capable of melting your face.

billy, you are a turd faced classic phish head. Y’all are like the christians of the jamband scene. Always thinking your group’s stuff is the best, acting like no one else exists, and fervently supporting them as if they are the only band. You are a true Phishtian. Now go home and listen to billy breathes while you work your magic with those “tweezers”....and magnifiying glass.
