Fundamentals Of Phish Economy Are Strong

Phish reunited over the weekend, and according to The New York Times almost no one at the Hampton gigs paid face value for tickets. In fact, “most fans had ended up paying at least several hundred dollars each.” Also? Cops confiscated $1.2 million in illegal drugs and $68,000 in cash. Gotta be careful out there. At least the bootlegs are free: you can download MP3s of all three sets now at livephish.com (flac too, but those will cost you). In this pay-what-you-want Web, I wonder if Phish even bother to license the Beatles and Stones covers. [Photo: Cory Schwartz/Getty Images Entertainment.]
