Man, I thought this picture of an Umphrey’s Aragon crowd was funny, but the Phish Hampton picture above takes the cake. For some inexplicable reason, there’s about 4,000 dudes and only 40 46 55 chicks* on the entire floor at the Phish Hampton show on March 6th — basically a 100:1 90:1 72:1 ratio of guys to girls.

We pretend to like the dudes in the front row.

I identified every floor mistress I could find with a little red arrow, but feel free to click the image above for the high-res pic and look for yourself. It’s entertaining and sad all at once.

* Thanks to the amateur Columbos who helped find the other chicks.

Update (March 16, 2009, 11:00 am): Well incredibly this made the front page of Digg so welcome Diggnation to Jamtopia. Notably, one eagle-eyed Digger has taken the time to identify a handful of additional ladies in the picture. Thanks Gypzee.

Props also to cryptographic genius kamerononfire who noticed a secret message hidden in the picture…

Update (March 16, 2009, 10:30pm): Got the pic updated to include Gypzee’s discoveries. I actually dispute one of his finds but discovered an alternate lady-of-the-rail while investigating, bringing the grand total up to 55. Also pleased to note that the Digg count is up over 3,000. Unbelievable.
