I watched some of this earlier, very well edited and I expect to see more of these fan documents with the 2024 world tour around the corner.

God that was such a good watch. It’s all there, the reasons why liking this band sometimes feels like more than just, well, liking a band. Not to get all circlejerky but it feels like so many values that I care about are also shared by the band and people that are drawn to it. This doc was dope and imho a good example of the variety of people in the swarm. It also made me rediscover the 1063 days doc which was really groovy too!!

As a mid-40’s Dad who, who spent the second half of the 90’s chasing Widespread Panic and Phish tours around during college, this warmed my soul. Fucking stoked to see kids in their 20’s chasing joy, friendship, experience, and the unknown in pursuit of their favorite band. Wish I had digital footage of all my adventures (well maybe not alllll of them lol)

We just dropped this interview with the documentary creator for anyone who cares to learn more about the project and the misogynistic response:

Pretty disappointing that people would take the time to bully the creators of such a great (not to mention entirely free!) project. If anything I hope this can serve as a stepping stone in their future because it really does deserve a lot.

I think it really boiled down to one person’s strong opinion after watching only 15 minutes, that then set off a bunch of other people’s existing bias on poster demand, fandom expression etc who hadn’t even watched it. Obviously it devolved significantly from there.
We all have different ideas of what’s cringe too, and I think some level of insecurity makes people see something like this and not be able to handle the thought that this is how non-fans must think of them.
