Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Update (9/29/11): A few commenters on this week's cover story, "Phish Story," alerted us to another video of the incident that has surfaced. This one, which was posted on YouTube today, evidently, is shot from yet another angle, and the footage appears to be from sometime between the subsequent eleven-second clip mentioned below and the part of the altercation captured in the original video.

Original Item (9/28/11): This week's cover story, "Phish Story," grew out of an online video (bottom) that shows Dave Anver and Augustine Paik squaring off in the parking lot of Dick's on Friday, September 2, before the band's three-night stand over Labor Day Weekend. The eleven-second clip above that video, which surfaced sometime after the altercation but was then pulled without explanation, offers another view; it appears to capture a portion of the incident before the second video begins. Click through to see both clips.
