You don’t need The Phunion to share with you the obvious – times are tough in America in 2012. With gas floating around $5 and attendance for last summers’ Super Ball IX rumored to be about 28,000 a day many Phish phans have feared a lack of summer festival for 2012. Thankfully your need to worry is no more as Phish has found a way to not only have a festival, but make new “family” as well.
According to the guy at my Medical Marijuana clinic, his brother’s wife’s neighbor happens to be a make-up artist for Detroit hip hoppers Insane Clown Posse. Looking to spice up their annual Gathering of the Juggalos festival, we can now (un)officially confirm that Phish and Insane Clown Posse are joining forces for Superball of the Juggalos.
The four day event will take place K.I. Sawyer Air Force Base in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula over Labor Day weekend. Other artists rumored for the event will be Limp Bizkit, Strangefolk, Skee-Lo and Kottonmouth Kings. The base will be divided into two separate concert fields and camp sites as it is a well known fact that Wooks and Juggalos have been at war since Woodstock 99. According to our contacts, when asked about the feud, ICP rapper Violent J was quoted as saying “Who cares if they kill each other as long as I get paid.”
From our vantage point this is a win win for fans of both groups. Juggalos will get better drugs and Phish fans can cure cotton mouth with refreshing Faygo. As soon as the official details for Superball of the Juggalos are announced, The Phunion will be the first to let you know.
Dozens of male Phish fans gathered outside of Red Light Managements Los Angeles office on Sunday 03/11/12 to protest the unfair and unjust distribution of the bands tour dates. Dubbing themselves #OccupyRedLight the phans marched from the sold out Trey Anastasio concert at the Walt Disney Concert Hall and have started to camp outside of the corporate offices. Their goal is a simple reminder to Coran Capshaw that Phish does indeed have phans on the west coast.
“This is pure class warfare” said 22 year old Phish fan Timmy Tucker. “Like I am hearing three nights at the Bill Graham Civic and two nights in Eugene for late summer. What kind of horse shit is that? Tiny venues means all the east coast snobs fly in for vacation to a part of the world that doesn’t totally fucking suck. You stay in Jersey and upstate you fat pigs, let us have our shows.”
Earlier in the day there was some confusion outside of The Borderline in London. It was believed that an #OccupyRedLight London operation was forming but as it turns out it’s just four dudes waiting for the March 18th Mike Gordon concert. When asked the lack of Phish tour dates for their continent and a possible #OccupyRedLight movement, 29 year old Steve Greta said the following.
“Ahhhhh I think that is a mighty fine idea. I’d much rather see Phish close the Olympics instead of Blur”
