Overheard on Phish Tour
With Phish triumphantly returning this year, there's been a lot of buzz. Especially from the hippies, or wookies as they are called (wooks for short). And with so many old hippies returning to a scene that has drastically changed since 2004, there's always a good mix of people, opinions, and down-right-absurd comments to hear. Much like Overheard in NY we thought we'd share the best of "Overheard on Tour" from the summer/fall 2009 phish shows:
Complete Jack-ass: I saw Phish probably 30 times in the '70s. They were a lot better then.
Suspicious Newbie: Are you sure you're not just completely ate up?
Complete Jack-ass: Nah man, not back then.
Douche-bag: I like Obama cause he likes Phish.
Other Douche: I think he meant fish. Like the food.
Douche-bag: Right, exactly. The Ben and Jerry's shit.
Vendor: Vegetarian stir fry!
Guy: What's that in there?
Idiot girl (as the band plays Bouncin' Around The Room): I hope they play Bouncin', it's my favorite song.
Older lady: I fucked Trey. Sure, we all did. With our minds. It was hot.
Guy-Who-Didn't-Know-Her: Oh, you're talking to me?
5. (at festival 8 on halloween)
Guy: What are you dressed as?
Girl: Someone you'll never sleep with.
4. (also at festival 8, not on halloween)
Drugged-Out Guy: Dude, your costume is so good. You look just like a cop.
Cop: I am a cop.
Moron Girl: So we got this L*, but it must have been bunk. All it did was hurt my back when I was trying to sleep.
Moron Guy: Where were you crashing?
Moron Girl: Well, we were trying to sleep on the ground, so maybe it was that.
Dealer: Molly, Molly.
Dealer: What? You need?
Molly: Huh? You were saying my name.
Dealer: Oh. Weird, you're named after the drug?
Molly: What drug?
Drunk Girl: I hate adderall. It makes my boogers blue.
Other Drunk Girl: Totes.
*L is apparently short for LSD, but you could have fooled me. Who takes LSD these days anyway?
