Merriweather Phish Finally

We went up to Merriweather Post Gazette Pavilion to see Phish play this last weekend. Dwight, Flowski and I made it into the show on both nights!

The shows were amazing. The first night i was planning on watching the webcast from the lot and continue to rage, but they had the cell phone blockers, so it took forever for the page to load, played 5 seconds and stopped. So we made a last minute move and snagged 3 tickets for less than face right before the show. Flow and Dwight went ahead in to enjoy the start of the show and Rob helped me break down to get in there.

This was the first time in a very long time that we were able to setup and vend at Merriweather! The fans were very excited that there was a shakedown at MPP. Before we could even finish setting up, we had 8 people shopping, almost a line to pick out cool hemp necklaces.

We were able to get the same spot both days, no blowout on lot, but everyone dragged their coolers to the bridge and did well.

The undercovers were still tackling people out of nowhere. Big mobile command center with a 100 foot tall camera watching everything and way too much excessive force. They were a bunch of Goons that didn't look like hippies. Way too many steroids.

But we had a great time because I have hand mined, non edible crystals, hemp necklaces and rings and things. Nothing they cared about.
