    Packing two separate NFL stadiums over five nights’s this summer; it is safe to say that Fare Thee Well was a raging success. From John Mayer and Katy Perry seeing their first Grateful Dead shows, to Phish keyboardist Page McConnell rocking a flat brim Mets cap, the celebration of 50 years of the Bay Area’s most successful band not named Metallica featured celebrities and #RealFans dancing to the biggest hits Jerry Garcia is no longer around to make cash off of.

    While we would never mock something as sacred and special as a jam band, one of the jokes that came out of these concerts was the Let Trey Sing movement.
