All this new activity and media attention caused her to reconsider. In a publicly documented experiment, Brownstein recently attempted to become one of Phish's faithful followers by immersing herself in the band's music and culture for an entire week. During that time she listened to nothing else. The result? She "now owns more Phish than anything else" but, at the end of the day, she's a punk-rock girl at heart.
