On Saturday, November 14 2020, the Virtual PhanArt Show will kick off at 12 Noon on PhanArt.net, featuring our largest ‘gathering’ ever of artists from the Phish and Jam communities! The Virtual show will run through mid-January, and allow fans and artists to connect, while supporting small businesses. Through Feb '21
Weird Music, Kelley Lauginiger,
The lights go down. Tardy wooks scuttle abound to get in position, but you’re in the pocket in a good spot with your crew, ready to rock. Maybe you have a boa on. Maybe you are wearing sunglasses inside. It’s time to leave the world behind for awhile and dance about it. But, a few notes in, you notice that the hand brushing your backside and grabbing you isn’t just someone dancing or one of your friends, and bottom-line: you’re not interested. It’s dark and loud, and you don’t want to cause a scene, so you just try to dance away. Just as you start to get comfortable again, the resounding groping grows. You’re being touched again, when you don’t want to be touched
NYS Music, Ally Dean
It’s a Saturday night in your city and people all over town are making plans to hit up the most popular music venue to catch a prominent local band. Groups of friends meetup beforehand to plan outfits, shoot the shit or convince each other to stop hermitting and be social. On this particular night, all walks of life turn up to see the band, and it’s a blast. The room is alive with energy, nearly everyone is dancing. Most people leave at the end of the night feeling invigorated. But there are a few music-goers whose night was clouded by discomfort. Why? Because another human inappropriately laid their hand on them without consent.
