Drugs are part of the scene, yes.

If raver culture isn't "culture", then you might be drawing some arbitrary lines.

On a serious note, I think jam bands care about their fans more than the average band. They play to the audience more. They also encourage taping and trading shows, and offer live webcasts to those that can't make it.

All good points. A band like Phish bends over backwards to ensure that their fans get the best possible experience they can, even if they're unable to attend the show.

While I think they care more than a band on a major label who just views their fans as a bunch of stupid marks who will hand over their money (I'm looking at you, Kings of Leon), almost any band or artist not on a major label depends on their fan support, and cares about them deeply. Even when former indie bands "graduate" to the najors, many of them still work hard for their fan bases.

Fugazi, for example, never sold an album for more than $10, would only play all ages shows so everyone could get in, and refused to play venues that had high ticket prices. I'd be willing to bet they never played a gig with tickets higher than $15.

Parrot Heads are a fun bunch to be around. But if it weren't for the drunk slutty MILFs that wouldn't necessarily be the case IMO
