How You Spent Your Widespread Panic Hiatus

Though Widespread Panic are currently on hiatus, the band and their management want to know what you are up to. In a message on their homepage, Panic says, “It’s summertime! But it feels like we should all be gearing up for a Panic summer tour…We miss seeing you lovely folks on a nightly basis, so we want to know what you are doing instead! Send in your hiatus photos and let us know what you’re up to this summer!” The group will likely share those photos on their homepage and on Facebook.

^^^^^^^^ last sentence is so latter 1990’s. maybe the most stupid fan rivalry of all time. >>>>apples>oranges>pee>butt>>>>who care’s>nobody>who care’s.

I remember back in the 90s, when both were really killing it, it seemed like most people went and saw Phish and WSP when they came round. There is so much hatred Sharon that neither would claim you as a phan. Go bark up the tree of American Idol or something.

@formerFam awesome setlist lol and amen @sm, NEITHER would want sharon at one of their shows! if im not mistaken, there was that whole HORDE thing that kind of brought everyone together.. no big deal though

WSP and Phish are 2 comppletly different bands, scenes, music whatever. My first jam show as a phish show and i had a blast. Thats what introduced me to the whole jam scene. But I found panic and havnt looked back since. These days I dont do the phish thing, not because I hate them just because its not my thing anymore. Im a Spreadhead plain and simple. Get over the pettiness and do what you love…. Isnt that what this is ALL about?

Really wish panic were around this year…I am a big fan of the phish as well so my year is going well, but I do like me some panic…can’t wait til the triumphant return.

Going to see Rush in September. Great band, but they can’t melt my face as well as Panic. I’ll also see the Flamin Lips for the first time at Loufest. Hope to see you next year boys!

I’m a spreadneck. I love listening to Phish. But they are not as danceable as Panic. I am going to see the Phish boys for my second time in OKC this year. As opposed to 50 shows of Panic. #for the love of music
