Im 40 years old, and all day outdoor Summer festivals are just too much for me. Im over it.

I am going to see Thievery Corporation this summer.

Yes, but will there be the chicks who insist on getting right in front of me and playing with their light-up hula hoops through every goddamn song?

In case we're ranking these things, I nominate any of the dozen or so Calgary Stampede outdoor shows as ground zero for drunk girls in cowboy hats making questionable decisions.  As a nexus of music, booze, hats, and tits, t's probably not even close.

Butte's Montana Folk Festival is 3 days long and is free. Always an awesome mix of music types from all over the world (the "Folk" part is a misnomer).

I've seen them twice.  The first time was much better.  They had some guy playing a sitar and they appeared to taking part in changing a lot of their tried and true tracks.  The second time was them more or less standing back and hitting play, but I really like them, so no biggie.

My boss dragged me to one of the last Dead shows ever. I had never gone and didn't want to go. But it was a day off work and he was supplying tickets, beer, and food, and he was driving. Last chance to see the dead, I thought. That old junkie can't live forever. I know from damned reliable sources he's hooked on China White and that dragon will kill you, so I go. We get there and it's a farking mob scene. It's Highgate Vermont and everyone from Jeffersonville has on identical "Steal Your Cows" tee shirts. (I gave mine to my cousin, a dead head in Cali. Two years later and he LOVED it) Anyway, we pull in and my boss parks handicapped, because he's got all kinds of farked up shait with his spine and it is his last year walking around, he was saving up for a super wheelchair that he has now and costs like a daddy SUV, but that is beside the point. Guy in the next handicap parking place says who's driving? I say my boss. He says "what's wrong with him?" I say< "well, he's the cheapest bastard you will ever meet, and his wife drinks too much"  the other guys says, no, why is he handicapped. I say Oh, you ask him, I'm not getting into that.  And then the boss's wife comes up and wants me to go down shakedown street with her because she saw this vest she wanted and is going to by me a beer from a scalper. OK, so after all that, we go to the gate which is being crashed, and have our tickets and finally get inside. It's only a quarter million people milling about and we move in to the herd and get near the stage so we can see. There is a huge hot air balloon with a wonderful Vermont landscape coasting by overhead, and we are buzzed and it's OK so far. There is this guy passed out in the dirt nearby. People are milling about being mellow and smiling and having a smelly old time. Really it stank with patchouli and B.O. and weed, tons of it. The show starts, and people are applauding and passed out guy wakes up and starts yelling. I don't mean yelling like yay, the concert's starting, I mean yelling like his brain is on fire and he's being a drunk asshole and he won't stop. The music starts and he won't stop. I walk over and two guys that know me stop me and say what are you going to do? I tell them you know, one punch and K.O. and he'll shut up. I'm not going to give him anymore brain damage than the farkier already has self-inflicted upon himself. No, dude, can't let you do that. That's not mellow. Not righteous . So I say fine, I didn't pay for my ticket and I'm going to walk away to a quiet area and smoke some hash alone and mellow out, then. So I drift off and run into about a hundred different people I haven't seen in years, all from Vermont. OK, I'm smoking Hash on a dumpster and some stinking old hippie says what's in the pipe, maaaaaan? And I tell him Crack< want some? And he backs away.  I get another toke in me and I hear, you smoking crack? And turn around and there is a cop. On the other side of the chain link fence. I say no. And you are on the wrong side of the fence, and I can't hear you lalalalala and walk away. I make it back to my friends who tell me yelling guy got clocked by the two guys who wouldn't let me hit him because they couldn't take it anymore. And he's out in the dirt again. Which is probably his entire story. Anyway. The whole thing sucked, and Gerry, or Jerry or whoever is up there doing Uncle Tom's band or whatever and he is supposed to be singing "how does the song go" but he forgets (ironically) those lines. I mean, you have one farking job to do and that is to justify the price of the tickets, you fat, smelly, junkie and you can't even do that. Fark this shait. So if paying too much to be part of the in crowd is what you are in to, then fine, but I just don't get the excitement any more. Perhaps it was all the years of doing security at concerts in the 70s or all the catering years, I don't' know. I'd be wary of anyone squatting in the dirt selling grilled cheese sandwiched, though.

i've spent 3 amazing extended weekends at rock-am-ring

however, this list is euro-centric. we have plenty in the usa, and many are inexpensive. heck, the dfw metroplex has at least 5 or 6 fests (some 1 day, some 2 or 3 day) that are inexpensive...97.1 the eagle's bfd (tix starting at $9.71!), ft worth music fest (which i believe is this weekend), edgefest, suburbia (which was a week or 2 ago in plano, or somewhere up in that area), burning bubba (at billy bobs, at the end of this month)...and does willie nelson's 4th of july picnic count as a fest? i would say so.

only one of these i've actually attended is bfd, couple of years ago...$9.71 + tax/fees...so something like $15...to see several good acts...hell yeah! (hell yeah was one of the bands, btw)

You tell a good story.  I only got to see them a few times, but I have lots of tapes.   Actually, I'm wondering what to do with them.  I can't just toss them out.  Anyway, some of my favorite moments on those tapes are when they fark up.

I have one from Red Rocks in I think 1987 where they start playing Brokedown Palace and about halfway into the first verse Jerry stops the whole song and says something like "This is all farked up, man.  We're singing in the wrong key."  And then he blames it on the altitude.

Another one from the Meadowlands has Bob Weir completely screwing up Hell in a Bucket.  What I heard was he was he was so into his guitar playing that when he started to sing the microphone wasn't anywhere near him.  On the tape the whole band just kind of winds down and stops so they can try again.

I don't think anyone ever accused any of them of actually being good singers which makes me scratch my head as to why Donna Godchaux got so much hate.  I actually liked her and think she has a good voice.

At any rate, I think it was better when they farked up and acknowledged it and started a song over than all those times they were just off.

About those tapes: contact the college radio station closest to you, there will be kids there so happy to have them that you'll have a new story to tell.
That's how I got rid of forgotten 8track tapes in the back of a closet - overheard kids at the station talking about them. They were buying and fixing up the old players for fun.
 
2014-05-14 02:53:08 PM  
Well, I decided to click the article.

That sucked.

I thought they would at least have a list of bands that I mostly never heard of for each festival, but they didn't even do that.  Apparently, that's left as an exercise for the reader.

So, I clicked on Tomorrowland in Belgium.  It's already sold out.  I just went through the entire list of bands that are playing over the 6 days that the fest runs.  There's a shiat-ton of different bands playing, but alas I only recognized one name in the whole bunch and I don't really like his shiat.  A number of artists either had "MC" or "Trance" in their names so I figure it's more like a rave than an actual hippy fest.

Still, there's like 9000 different artists performing, so I'm sure I could find something I liked.  If I happened to be in Belgium in late July and someone gave me a ticket, I wouldn't hesitate to go.

I'm not going to look for the lineups of the other fests....probably just a lot of more bands I never heard of.

Am I getting old?

Hmmmm....only 4 tanks of gasoline round trip from me.   I'll think about that.

I'm kind of scared about venturing into other states though since we legalized pot.  Not that I'd be stupid enough to bring any with me, but I think cops will see Colorado plates and want to search my car.

The whole idea of a cop bullying me and trying to say that I can either allow him to search my car or he'll make up probable cause to do so if I don't.  Or maybe he'll just make me sit there on the side of the road while he calls in a K-9 unit that will claw the shiat out of my upholstery and then I'll be told that the dog "alerted" on something so he can search my car anyway.

And no, the fact that I have nothing to hide does not mean I'm okay with that.

And I don't know about Montana, but I don't think for a second that any of the states which immediately border Colorado would hesitate to do that.  Seriously, I'm surrounded my Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah.  Texas is only a hop, skip and a jump across Oklahoma.  They all want to bust some Colorado hippy and I've dealt with cops in at least a couple of those states.  They don't always play fair.

Were you born yesterday or what?

settle down, just show your papers, citizen, and you'll be right on your wa...wait a sec, the k9 read my hand signal...er, i mean, detected the presence of narcotics, giving me the right to search

15 minutes later, and the cop is mad for not finding anything, gets you for your attitude, or some such

am i close? i watch a LOT of COPS

csb
my 1st wife and i were heading back into germany after a couple days in amsterdam. we were in a rented late-90s or early 2000s e-class white mercedes. the cops just inside the german border pulled us over, had me step out to the back, and searched the car. they were really polite, but (almost) 100% thorough. i showed no fear/nervousness, and talked to them about being in the american military (i was, at that time, in the airforce reserves).

they explained, as they steadily searched, that that particular style car was common among traffickers, so they stop them all. after their (almost) 100% search, they politely sent us on our way.

did i mention that i believe we were actually pulled over due to a concerned driver watching my wife smoke a joint while we were going down the freeway?

oh yeah, the "almost" 100%...only thing they didn't search was my wife's purse. she had about 4 grams in there. WHEW!

My boss dragged me to one of the last Dead shows ever. I had never gone and didn't want to go. But it was a day off work and he was supplying tickets, beer, and food, and he was driving.

OK, so after all that, we go to the gate which is being crashed, and have our tickets and finally get inside. It's only a quarter million people milling about and we move in to the herd and get near the stage so we can see. There is a huge hot air balloon with a wonderful Vermont landscape coasting by overhead, and we are buzzed and it's OK so far. There is this guy passed out in the dirt nearby. People are milling about being mellow and smiling and having a smelly old time. Really it stank with patchouli and B.O. and weed, tons of it. The show starts, and people are applauding and passed out guy wakes up and starts yelling. I don't mean yelling like y ...


Donna ruined my tapes.
