Search Contest Winners

Posted by teibs On June - 30 - 2009

winner 300x242 Search Contest Winners @ZackTeibloom Andy said he was shocked how easy this quiz turned out. I considered making it twice as long and hard (extra joke from grow-er/show-er response.) We had two pretty much perfect responses within an hour and a half.

Matt Silver (the man who lives at the Festival Crashers’ home away from home) beat the Schiff (the missing Wolf) by an hour, but Schiff was a million times more entertaining. Hodge entered a nearly perfect score as well, but he didn’t type more than 20 words and was third to submit.

I compiled the original questions, Schiff’s answers and my responses into a nice little package for you. Enjoy: Read the rest of this entry »

phishsimpsons 300x255 Phish on Guitar Hero and Rock Band@ZackTeibloom Any Phish news is good Phish news these days. There’s the TBA location of Phish’s Halloween run (I hear Coachella grounds), the new album (called Joy) and every show review on this tour has been lauding praise on the band. I mean, you’ve seen, you’ve heard, you know.

Today they announced they’re letting us in on the fun. Live Phish on Guitar Hero and Rock Band! Here’s the press release: Read the rest of this entry »

Secret Crashing Spot #1: Chicago Congress Theater

Posted by teibs On June - 30 - 2009

congress 300x178 Secret Crashing Spot #1: Chicago Congress Theater @ZackTeibloom It made my crash-loving soul giddy to get this e-mail from Hodge today. As much as I love a good crash, Hodge went a step further, detailing a consistently easy way to crash a pretty major Chicago venue.

The bad news? You need to have someone on the inside. The good news? It’s like having a buy one, get 10 free ticket. Here’s the tip: Read the rest of this entry »

Rob’s Rothbury Top 10 Anticipated Shows

Posted by shore On June - 30 - 2009

robgirltalk Robs Rothbury Top 10 Anticipated Shows @Rob_Shore While I may be a newb to the festival scene, I am no stranger to live music. I’ve seen live music consistently over the years starting with The Who when I was 9-year-old. This year’s Rothbury line-up is packed full of bands I’ve been listening to for years. Only a few I’ve had a chance to see. Since Zack is following up Andy’s stay on the DL with a stint of his own, I got the call to suit up for Rothbury. I couldn’t be more excited. Over the last week I’ve been to formulating a top ten list of shows I’m most looking forward to. Half of them are bands I’ll be seeing for the first time.

Hack College’s Crash Gone Wrong

Posted by teibs On June - 27 - 2009
hack 300x187 Hack Colleges Crash Gone WrongGuest post from Hack College’s Kelly Sutton, who crashed SXSWi by putting on a panel. I met Kelly the day after this crash takes place at a bar.

His ribs were still sore, but his recent stint in the hospital didn’t stop him from throwing a few drinks back that night. He’s a warrior. Kelly was kind enough to post my Top 5 Festival Crashing tips on his site, Hackcollege.com Without further ado, here’s Kelly:

While I pride myself in my amateur crashing abilities, there’s one crash gone wrong that sticks out in my mind. It’s also the one that required a trip to Austin’s Brackenridge Hospital the next morning. While getting past a bouncer is usually no problem, sometimes you need to bring out the big guns.

RIP Michael Jackson: The King Of Pop

Posted by shore On June - 26 - 2009

ripmichaeljackson RIP Michael Jackson: The King Of Pop@AndyShore Yesterday, as news began to break on Twitter of Michael Jackson’s passing, I was in the middle of watching Ghostbusters with some friends. We quickly switched the movie off and began flipping through news stations, trying to find out what had happened. CNN was only reporting that he had sustained cardiac arrest, and then that he was in a coma. The only source reporting his death was TMZ. Read the rest of this entry »

Pitchfork Schedule Released

Posted by teibs On June - 22 - 2009

p4k1 300x169 Pitchfork Schedule Released@ZackTeibloom The day a festival schedule is released is usually fraught with future decision making. It’s exciting, but you can’t help look ahead to what shows you’ll have to miss due to overlaps. At Lolla this year you have to choose between Snoop Dogg, Lou Reed, MSTRKFT and Passion Pit all playing at the same time Sunday.

Thankfully, Pitchfork doesn’t have too many drastic ones. Read the rest of this entry »

Phish @ Alpine Valley 6/20

Posted by shore On June - 21 - 2009

phishalpineone Phish @ Alpine Valley 6/20 @AndyShore Alpine Valley is a treacherous place for a person on crutches. It is all hill. After parking in the handicapped lot and being golf carted through the back stage area, I had to crutch up a steep hill just to get to the top of the pavilion area. They placed us just to the left of the soundboard, at the rear of the pavilion. The seats were actually perfect. Almost as perfect as the opener.

 

“Punch You in the Eye” was just what the doctor ordered. I quickly forgot how tired and sore I was from crutching up the hill as Phish nailed my personal favorite. There is something noticeably pleasant about the band this time around. The smile on Trey’s face never faded as he tore through solos, beckoned to Cactus and bounced on the trampoline.

Phish line @Bonnaroo: Shark vs. Walrus

Posted by teibs On June - 20 - 2009

shark 300x225 Phish line @Bonnaroo: Shark vs. Walrus @ZackTeibloom I cheered harder for an inflatable shark than I did for any band all weekend. Weird things happen when a mob forms to see Phish. I’ll start at the beginning.

To get into the front section (let’s call it the glory hole) of the main stage at Bonnaroo, you had to wait in a line as the show before it was going on. It was typically worth the wait, as you’d end up in the best spot, right behind the photo pit.

Bonnaroo closed with Erykah Badu, Snoop and Phish on the main stage, so I planned on staying in the glory hole all night. Unfortunately, they clear the hole out after every show and you have to get back in line. I found Jordan at the end of Badu and we got in the left line (since most people only knew about the right line.) Read the rest of this entry »
