Truth in advertising laws should probably require that to say:

"60% of the Go-Gos, Martha Davis & one of the Motels, the drummer for Cutting Crew, and Naked Eyes v. 2.1"

The stench of patchouli, overflowing porta-johns, filthy, hairy beasts (and that's just the women) and the litter.
You forgot those, subby.

I prefer to avoid all those things.  I also prefer to avoid people who've never learned to drive, picnic basket-toting f*ckballs, braindead security,  and those who tell me about their favorite "merlot"  like it was a marvel of modern vinification.


So music festivals are out, I guess.

I don't think I've ever been to a music festival where I've seen someone with a picnic basket or heard anyone speak about wine. I think we probably listen to very different music

While not a music fest per se, Ravinia allows for picnic settings, and people bring lots of food and beverages. It's pretty awesome, and they usually have a pretty decent range of performers over the summer.

80% for The Go-Go's, but probably accurate otherwise.

At Milwaukee's Summerfest circa 1978 you'd hear people talking about wine coolers (and drinking lots of them), but that was a different time with different beverages.

Also did they put their set lists on the poster? That just seems... sad, for some reason.

I so wish I could have seen that... but I would have been 14 (and never heard of Patton at that point).

A summer music festival without mud, vomit, or the smell of marijuana smoke? That can be summed
up in one word:   CANCELLED.

I live near the Ravinia festival site, and all I can say about it is:  "meh".  I personally dislike
outdoor music festivals - and I'm sure my neighbors will pillory me for this - and I wish Ravinia
would plunge into the shiathole of history.

I was there.  Just off camera, to the right, with a head full of acid. Patton drank beer and smoked cigarettes with everybody during the break. Also he heckled Phil Anselmo who was seated upstairs, still detoxing I believe.  "Going gay for 2000!  Just like Phil!"

Also it was the most impressive live performance of an album I have ever witnessed.

I'll take a badass show in a rotting, tiny dive bar over an outdoor music festival every time.

CoonAce: I'll take a badass show in a rotting, tiny dive bar over an outdoor music festival every time.


Yes, absolutely.

The Ramones at the Camel Club (Rodon Club, these days i think) in Athens, Greece 1994.  Awesome.  They had to peel a speed-frenzied headbanger off the ceiling, and there was a burning police car outside by the time it was over.  We had to flee the streets because there was an anarchist vs. neo-nazi fight outside that the riot cops wanted to win, and two of us had drugs on their person.

 I did a crowd surf Sistine Chapel finger touch with Joey Ramone while they did I Wanna Be Sedated.

/CSB, yeah yeah i know, but sh*t it was too awesome.

They did California in its entirety? shiat. Now I'm even sadder

Patton seems like he'd be awesome to hang out with

Start to finish, and some old standards. Much like Buzz,  Patton's just Patton to hang out with.  He's a wild f*cking performer though.  I still can't believe he can keep that vocal range while chain smoking.
