The Funniest Things Overheard At Phish’s Two-Night Stand At The Gorge

first_imgPhish is like a carnival for adults, where the guy wearing a unicorn onesie is no less of a man than the one wearing the goldfish suit. It’s a no judgment zone, where the unspoken agreement is to understand one another on a ground level by accepting our similar passions and love for this band from Vermont. In a camping situation like The Gorge, fans are happily forced to live side-by-side for two, even three days, and make friends with strangers. With a full weekend spent together and bathing in the entertainment of “Lot Life,” you’re bound to overhear some of the best conversations and one-liners that could never be heard anywhere else.These Gorgeous Photos Capture The Majesty Of Phish At The Gorge [A Gallery]We started the “Funniest Things Overheard” series last summer at the Grateful Dead’s 50th Anniversary shows, and continued the note-taking at Magnaball and Lockn’ last summer. In the spirit of “Summer Tour 2016,” we did our best to collect some of the best things we overheard at Phish’s three-day weekend at SPAC, and did the same for this weekend’s Gorge run.So, without further ado, we present to you the best things we heard at The Gorge this weekend.
