Nitrous Mafia Vibes Murder- Altamont 2009-The Death of the Festival
After some "in field" investigation at the u melt show this past weekend this sums up what i see as the truth, these people aren't really as organized as we thought and most are just dudes trying to make a buck. the guy i met was nice and just trying to support his family, based out of NJ. The NY gas people are NOT the Philly people, they are old Dead Heads with a bunch of college buddies that they pay off in gas to hang out and help out. They are NOT violent, Not organized (beyond 5-6) people per crew. nothing like this huge conspiracy crap that was mentioned on the Headcount blog interview with the security. They are not making huge bank, its just fun to make to make things into these mythic legends. Maybe some people from Philly are violent, but they act alone. You can usually spot the aggro sketchballs from a mile away.
I love how hippies think everything is so organized...Nitrous mafia, The Family, Hippy mafia...whatever you call it.
People know who they know, and work with folks they can trust...to think there is any more sinister organization to the whole thing (the suggestion that this thread makes) is very funny
I guaruntee ther is more "organization" to your local weed scene/chain than there is to all the randoms that have been bringing tanks on tour through the years.
Just my $.02

I have been writing for years about why Indian Lookout Country Club Is great because they choose a few laws to enforce and do it well, one of which is NO NITROUS, the bikers do a WAY better job at this than the cops and therefore keep the shady, greedy NO2 mafia out. These people are way shadier then anyone because the nature of their business, HUGE profit and need to be extra shady while "dealing." Mostly from Philly these ultra sketch balls are pulling 50k a show, enough to pay off local authorities, they are getting way out of hand and now exist only to prey on the scene. When I saw the balloons going crazy right outside MSG this spring during the Dead i thought it was funny. Now I am starting to see there is a violent side that has no place in this subculture of pacifism. scroll down and read shit to know whats going on. Buy your own tank and don't let these fucks exhort you for being ont their "turf." There is no room for mafia bullshit in jamband music. We need the Angels back.
Meanwhile while we get organized join this group.
