Don't forget to chip in towards propane, gotta keep those grills running all through Vibes. Too much? Certainly it can't be too soon.

Are you kidding me?
Have you not seen the BoomMan grilling up a storm, or are you always too sloshed on hurricanes to notice?

Since there was no context surrounding the post I thought I would ask.

Regarding hurricanes, I typically have 1 or none at all. They are too strong for me I guess! :lol: I have seen BoomMan grilling for the masses, yes. However, I was unaware that there was a call/need for propane. Any time there is a call for help for cleaning, donations for food, drinks, ice, etc. I make sure to step up. :thup:

Chapter Two: The Music: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Part 1: The Good

It is possible to see 12-15 acts and 21 hours of music per day if you are so inclined. That's a lot of music. My speed is more like 6-8 bands/day for 8-10 hours, with the pattern of leaving anything early that sucks and checking out something new.

I had heard Papadosio was electronica. WRONG. They are a fast-paced in-your-face 5-piece jamband with a modern sound who never play a slow tune and never let the audience rest. The extent of "electronica" in their sound is one computer assisting one of the keyboard players. One of their fans told me they describe themselves that way because they want a younger, hotter crowd and fewer lololdpeople.

Greensky Bluegrass was another great discovery. They are no Stringdusters but are still a world class bluegrass act. The dobro is heavily featured. lolrailroadearth :lol:

The Motet will be getting all of my GD copycat band dollars from now on. Brilliant re-arrangement of GD tunes with funky-ass backbeats.

Deer Tick: I thought it was sort of punk/rockabilly/ very much their own sound with creative song writing in a mix of styles. But apparently this is called "Indie." Well OK then.

Lettuce: DANCE WHITE BOY DANCE!!!!!!

The Nibblers: Great high energy funk that kept me moving, even while mostly in conversations with people at the private little party they played at. Very worth checking out.

Of course there was a lot more great music but I like to keep reviews to new acts I have never seen before. So naturally Galactic, Nola Suspects, and many more acts were awesome but you already know about them.

Side note: "Stares from the Sidelines" was in her normal top form. It seemed like every time I was dancing my ass off like a maniac, there she was at a distance with eyes affixed on me. Yet every time we interacted in person I got this judgmental attitude thing and she would make a point of minimizing direct conversational contact.

Some personal relationships I may never figure out but at least this one is better than it was. At least she occasionally smiles at me now instead of that constant scowl.

Why isn't hsmf review a regular thread?

I sent a friend some $ today using walmart's moneygram arrangement. Basically, i used my credit card and she picked up cash at a local-to-her walmart. I'd be happy to do something similar for propane for spacecamp and/or 'booma's house of grillcakes. Moreso if i can swap it for food, etc. Feel free to PM further details, should they exist. This also seems like an easy way for people who wish to contribute financially in advance of teh festivities. But what do I know? :lol:

Chapter Two: The Music: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Part 2: The Bad

The Slip: I was excited to see the Slip after all this time, having been one of the primo jambands back in the day. Well, they don't have anything new and sounded rather old and tired. I lasted 3 tunes before fleeing the stage.

The Lumineers: slow cowboy tunes. Painful. They should really pass out something sharp to the crowd so we can stab ourselves in sensitive places to stay awake.

Paper Diamond: Dj button-pusher who waves his hands in the air for 2 hours. The kids loved it. I stayed for the entire set because it was like watching the worst trainwreck I'd ever seen and I needed to punish myself for having so much fun earlier.

Chapter Two: The Music: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Part 3: The Ugly

I reserve this for the worst experience of the weekend: Sound Tribe Sector 9. In fact, nothing else I've seen in years even approached the horrendous proportions of this set. I'd had both good and bad experiences with STS9 in the past and went in with an open mind, although not really the biggest electronica fan to begin with.

My crew for this was super fun. New people I had met in SF earlier in the week and wanted to make a point to hang out with, so I was willing to endure a lot of pain before fleeing the worst bad trip music nightmare that I can't wait to forget.

As we made our way through the crowd to the front the stage backdrop looked really cool with a huge projection screen light/image show. We should have stayed right there, as it turned out. The light show is more like some form of torture with retina-burning spotlights shined and blinking in your face. By the time we got to the front I was temporarily blinded and could barely tell who was who around me. The front was full of shirtless well muscled kick box-style "dancers" or yahoos as I'd call them with no regard for whose face they were inadvertently punching and I was afraid of taking a serious injury out there. No lololdpeople allowed in front I guess.

As for the music, they get these great wayyyy too short grooves going on and then suddenly halt right when they're actually about to take it somehere. Then they re-route to some spacy riff and then into a different groove which teases you into thinking this might actually be music. But no, it is button-pushing and does not seem to be based on any good music I've learned about.

WILL NOT SEE AGAIN.

Right after setting up camp I wander over to the closest stage for Greensky Bluegrass and run into all my favorite people clumped together, although many didn't know each other. . .so I make some introductions and while I'm doing that this pretty woman walks up to me and tells me I have "Male camel toe." I reply with "No, they're just big balls, OK!"

So she grabs this portable whiteboard and writes down the quote and insists that I hold the sign and jump around with it for a while. I am happy to oblige. But to the casual observer, the resulting photo looks like I'm making an excuse for jamming a boner up on her butt!
