I know some New England roosters gotta be going to this! Or is everyone already planning for All Good?
I missed last years, too. One of my friends went VIP and met some of the people that organize the event. At the time they had said that they had a good lineup planned for this year. I've heard RHCP will be there, which is no surprise since they are playing pretty much everywhere this summer. I'm hoping that isn't their biggest announcement since RHCP is playing Roo.
Bonzai I was wondering when you'd make your appearance in this thread! If you do go we'll have two weekends in a row to rage Roo style up north with quack club the following weekend! Hope the lineup is up to par with the rest of this season's so far!
I have no internet at home right now (I should hopefully have it back tonight!), so I spend most of my work days the past few weeks trying to catch up. I don't have enough time in my work day to get much further than the active topics! But I found it! Chella, If you (or anyone else!) need a place to stay that weekend, my apartment is open! It's at least an hour away, but it's closer than your place!
It will be a fabulous few weeks, for sure! I want Quack Club NOW!
Fellas, their fest is definitely less impressive than almost any other fest I've ever been to or heard of, but it's right here, and the crowd is always full of my friends. It's nice not to have to travel much to go the a fest for once.
You mean drugged out wooks in one of the scummiest places in New England? Last year I nearly got into a fight for no reason. Theft is rampant. Bird shit is everywhere. If you stay off the park and commute daily, the shuttle drivers might drop you off in Stratford cause they have no idea where to go.
2/19: Flaming Lips
2/25: Trailer Park Boys
4/4: of Montreal
4/22: Peter Hook & The Light
4/24: Gov't Mule

5/2: Zappa Plays Zappa

If Sunday had Hornsby/Weir and STS9 thrown on top, I would do the day pass.
Otherwise, I have no interest. Vibes is a terrible fest in a terrible fest with some terrible people attending. I like city fests, but traveling TO Bridgeport is pointless except for trying to score druqs.
