Being A Jam Band Fan: One Man’s Perspective

Nov 27th, 2007 // 10 Comments

Oblivious to hype/changing mores about grooming, jam bands continue to attract the dazed and confused in record numbers, even in the most non-bucolic locations. Which made intrepid Idolator videographer Alex Goldberg curious: What’s so different about being a jam band fan in the city? And have jam band fans changed at all in the last, oh, several decades. He visited last night’s Seth Winters show at the Annex to find out, and in addition to learning how to dance and drug like true jam fan, he got the answer to the most important theological question of our day: Who’s better, God or the dude from Phish?

    Wow, I knew the Annex had jumped the shark and all in terms of its “downtown hipster cachet,” but booking jam bands? Sad.

    when was the annex ever not a deep, narrow, miserable place to see a show?

    Better question: hipsters or hippies?

    “Did god ever sell out Madison Square Garden?”

    The implications of this question are blowing my mind, man.

    I love that he seems proud of pissing in a fountain while on mushrooms, yet embarrassed to be seen at a DMB show. I don’t even like Dave Matthews and I want this douchenozzle to just go away.

    @Swankster:
    at least hippies dance and seem to be enjoying themselves.

    This douchetard is the reason I can’t stand jam bands. The music = tolerable. The fans = this assmunch.

    That was the most believable sketch comedy I’ve ever seen!

    This is Giuliani’s legacy, These guys arrive right after Disney.
