There are a lot of good bands on this. It sucks for the second stage bands though.. Upstairs x3 + you can only sell merch for up to 10mins after your set. Parking is a mess for bands. Irish pub across the street serves a mean Shepherds Pie though.

2/28/2007 3:39:05 PM
They should quarrintine all the pig vocal bands into one day so they don't interfere with the rest of what's going on. That way they can squeal and roll around in slop without making me dirty.
2/28/2007 3:39:32 PM
