What's a custie?


I have no idea


"Custie" is a PhishHead term referring to concertgoers that have jobs and money and only do local shows instead of touring. It is short for "Customer".

You are a Deadhead when you say you are.


what about people that have jobs and money but still travel on tour as much as possible..... would they be considered a "custie"?

just wondering


I'm not positive about this, but I think that if you have a job and money, you are a "custie" even if you do tour as much as possible. I think you have to rely on selling stuff on tour or panhandling in the lot to be considered a "wookie". But I'm not sure. Back in the day, us Deadheads didn't use these terms. I'm struggling to learn the new language. lol.

I think you have to look like me also to be a custie. I have short hair

I guess that makes me a custie. I have a job, money, short hair and I only go to local shows. Custie = person with real responsibilities in life.

I've alway heard custie used by grimy tour kids who need some lingo to separate out people who are naive and able to be ripped off for money in some way by them. Custie implies an assumption put on a person based on their appearance or their demeanor around the show. A noob or a newbie for those computer lingo inclined. I'd say its a shitty term meaning I can pull one over on this person...to me custie is a term applied to victims of what I certainly would call a crime.

The definition above from my experiences js grossly in accurate. I have short hair a job go to more shows than most who are actually on "tour" and can not be bullshitted on lot or about anything regarding the music or the scene. Does that make me a custie I give a heartfelt no. I'm a deadhead.

I think a deadhead goes to a show for the music and the energy. All the other stuff is secondary.

Is 'custie' a slam against someone? Is it a term used to make one who doesnt work and follows phish better than one who has responsibilities?
