Standing in the rain and realizing that Tea Leaf Green was one of the most generic, terrible, wanky ass jambands ever that was not worth standing in the rain for.

Thunderstorms & lightening = no Moe playing Bummer! For the rest if the night our excitement was crowding under a canopy watching the lightening touchdown on the field!

I remember the 5 hour wait to get in at 2003 but we didnt care everyone was ragin it in line.

 

Yup. We were pre kids then so no biggie!

 

Oh & this just made me realize my dates were wrong - Bring the Funk back was 2007!

On our way to crash out in the wee hours of the morning, a familiar voice calls out to us in the darkness.

"Remember, just because you're wearing earplugs doesn't mean everyone else is!"  :rolling:

Red Hook...

 

Pouring rain...

 

Under Canopy...

 

Naked chicks using the rain as a shower within 20 feet of our caopy, and when they realized we were watching, they played it up.  :)

Thinking the lead singer of Jane's Addiction is a tool

07- Getting ready to take a nap before Martin Sexton who I had never heard. Ryan Montbleau grabbed my shoulder and told me that I needed to stay. He said" Martin is why I decided to play music". I stood with him watching him watch Martin with complete adoration.

 

2012- Dancing and spinning in complete bliss during the Avett Brothers set last year.

 

2011- Dancing like a madman completely covered in sweat to Elvis Costello. Sitting in a chair in 100 degree heat on Friday because I would not miss Tedeschi Trucks.

Definitely a life-altering moment.  Never thought I'd see the day where I looked forward to using the bathroom at a fest.  :lol:

Every minute of every Vibes since '99 (except 01 and 04) is my favorite memory.

 

But I'll never forget...

 

EPCOT Phil at '02 and the fireworks that kept going off (and Jennathaye chasing down to no avail the suspected hooligans...and the knucklehead biker who decided it would be cool to go full throttle with straight pipes down on the field during a quiet moment in Phils set).

 

Rivers of Rain at ILCC in '06 just as Bobby was finishing his last song. The rain came down in buckets for what seemed like three hours non stop. When morning light came, the field looked like a war zone. The rain came down so hard so quickly that people literally left many items on the field and ran for cover. And that was the night of the very short but SICK dance party that took place in the Radio Vibes tent just after the rain started. Stopped when the power went out.

 

The very-roughed-up-by-the-weather hawk that landed on top of the one of the stage towers a few years back just after one of those really crazy storms that had shut down the stage.

 

 

...to name a few.
