Phish Phans Pull All-nighter For Flood Benefit Show Tickets

Phish is playing a benefit show at the Champlain Valley Fairgrounds on Wednesday, September 14.  All ticket and merchandise proceeds will go to flood victims across the state.  A portion of the tickets were distributed via an on-line lottery; the rest are on sale this morning at the Flynn Theater.  People have been lining up since yesterday afternoon stocked with boom boxes, folding chairs, and beers (discreetly stashed in coffee cups).

I'm no Phish-head but I'm definitely glad they did this.

Yeah, it's great. They raised over a million dollars with more $ on the way!
