Portsmouth ntelos ampitheater
i was lucky enough to go to the phish show here june 16th, 2010 despite my problems preventing travel this summer. one of the cool thing about this venue is that there is an rv lot that allows parking all night. obviously this is the shakedown lot. it was fairly wide open with some presence by undercovers but little interference, i did hear of ABC busting one girl for selling beer while the show was going on. this is always a problem at virginia shows but usually happens when lots are less crowded, earlier during the day or when the show is happening. It was never cleared after the show, and there was a surprising lack of nitrous for an east coast show. The whole time it was mostly peaceful despite the prevalence of alcohol and drugs and lack of law enforcement. There was one fight between some pizza vendors toward the end of the night which was quickly broken up by other heads, probably related to the ongoing french bread pizza mafia turf wars. we here at roots vision design endorse lot mafia diplomacy and an end to the bloodshed. just kidding. we think gdf should rule lot with an iron fist, you damn hippies.
