Just one more reason I won’t go to Bonnaroo

February 22nd, 2007 Comments off

Why go to Bonnaroo to see the Flaming Lips when you can see them in Raleigh April 18th? We all know
disco rodeo sucks ass as a venue, but it’s the Flaming Lips.. OK so I remember saying that seeing the Pixies would be awesome regardless of venue but that
show sucked ass cause it was 130 degrees inside.. I think Frank Black was having a heat stroke.. Not quite sure.. Maybe the “rodeo” will have some air
conditioning this time.. Lord i’m breaking into a sweat thinking about that show.. So anyway anyone else interested? Maybe even to offer me and Sheila a
couch/floor to crash on?

E-Tix Link

Hopefully that link works.. if not go to etix and search for flaming lips..

Thanks Caleb for the text message heads up!

So the Sasquatch! Festival Lineup was announced
today.. Screw Bonnaroo.. Coachella would be a pain in the butt to co-ordinate.. Sasquatch it is.. Jake says the venue is awesome.. Music festival on the
Columbia river.. Talk about rad.. I just got plane tickets.. Buying the event tickets on March 3rd when they got on sale.. American has some seats for 200
+ tax out there (RDU->SEA) at least right now..

Anyway I am excited.. Should be fun.. 20k people is WAY less than the stinkin’ 80k for the ‘Roo..
Screw Tool (yeah hbomb you can like em, but I don’t)..

Well that’s what i’m doing for Memorial day.. Who wants to give us a ride to/from RDU, let
us ditch a car for a week? :)

So this is where Sheila and I
will be..

Until next time..

Tool? Really.. Tool?

So last year the Bonnaroo lineup was pretty awesome.. Radiohead, Tom Petty, Beck, Death Cab, Rusted
Root, etc.. I wish I had stayed for Matisyahu, but oh well.. I thought this year would be pretty awesome considering 2005s lineup looked awesome as well..
So today they finally made the lineup anouncement.. Tool? I mean what the fuck? Tool? Yeah whatever Bonnaroo.. I am hoping maybe you will realize what
you did and 2008 will be better.. I think i’ll just try and see the Decemberists in Raleigh in April, and the Flaming Lips somewhere on their way to or
from Bonnaroo.. I know Sheila wants to see Regina Spektor, but the initial line up is pretty disapointing in my opinion..

I was lookign around for
other festivals and the Sasquatch festival in Washington State looks awesome.. Its memorial day weekend, which airfare from Raleigh is only 185 a person,
a weekly rental car from SEA is only 160 with tax.. I mean thats not bad.. The 2006 lineup was pretty rad looking, so 2007 could be pretty good as well..
ANd hte location? Holy shit.. Gorge Ampitheatre.. Google it.. Look at it on Wikipedia.. I should say Cochella looks cool, but its during school so I’d
go alone and have to leave Sheila behind.. Camping isn’t super cheap at Sasquatch but its per car, so anyone else want to go?

Well yeah.. It’s
Valentines day and I shouldn’t dare forget to mention my lovely Sheila.. It’s been an amazing 1+ years and there will be many many more to come.. I
haven’t been happier in my life..

So here is to summer music festivals.. If I go to Sasquatch Jake i’ll be comin’ to see you again..
