What Is Your First Festival Of The Season?

Rock and Roll Resort
Hopefully followed by Strangecreek...I've been doing some number crunching and festivals/phish shows are going to need to be trimmed down a bit this year.
We are paring down our festie calendar big time this year too. But you already knew that

Jazzfest is only as hectic as you want to make it.
But yeah, it is expensive.
I used to go to Jazzfest in the 90's. It was so different back then. Daily tickets to the fairgrounds was $7 or $8/day. In 99 (my last year there) I think it was $15/day.
I would get an apt in Faubourg Marigny for about $600-$750 for a week. I always had airline miles, so that was easy. But know? $50/day? $250/night hotels? $500-$600 airfare? Shows at Tips and HoB, food, booze, etc would prolly be around $4000.
Once you learn to stay out of the Quarter, it's cheaper. But it is still a lot of dough for a week...

more than likely barring some kind of budgetary miracle (Jwheelz gets a job) it will be Strange Creek... otherwise I might do some slightly earlier ones if it's in the cards financially... probably not though... more than likely see you all at Strange Creek
