Phish fans REALLY like their drugs
This past weekend, trustafarian's and fratboy's (and my) prayers were answered as Phish took the stage for a 3 night run @ Hampton Coliseum in Virginia after a 4 1/2 year Hiatus. The band is preparing for string of summer dates on the East Coast, and a headlining slot at this year's Bonnaroo Music Festival in Tennessee.
Anyone who's every been to a Phish show before can attest to the fact that the crowd is very heady, very happy, and LOVES their "extracurriculars". It seems that the fiends were out in full force, as Virginia cops confiscated over 1 million dollars in drugs and paraphernalia, along with over 60k in cold hard cash. The busts were made by a fleet of 200 VA coppers that were paid for by Phish Inc.
The band was nice enough to dish out free mp3 downloads of the show HERE. It looks as though the free downloads may be a limited time offer, but i'm sure they're all over the ole "LimeWire" by this time.
