Huge Thank You's!!!!!
At this point in my story, I’d like to stop a moment to give thanks to all of the people who helped us, some of them unexpectedly. Steph and Joe are good friends, and they may not necessarily dig all of the music, but they stood by that back door for several nights in a row. Thanks! At least on Friday and Saturday night they got to watch the dance party next door, which, I may say, is very interesting. Steph said about the Popfest:
“Even if you don't like the style of music, even if you don't like most of the bands... it's a good time.
You meet lots of people from ALL OVER, and everyone is nice to each other, there's no big attitude problems, and by the end of the weekend it's like a big happy family .
Although musically this one was a LOT better than the first one. I really dug dyrdin, the locas, and my teenage stride (they got a lot better/different than the last time i saw them.)”
Thanks, Steph & Joe!
Next up is Aileen, who we met be chance last summer at a BBQ and now she plays keyboards in our band, Singing Bridges. Aileen stuck by the front door all weekend, rocked out in the back and kept me company amidst all the chaos. We even convinced her to come up for Saturday night, begging and pleading via text messages all afternoon. Thanks Aileen!!!!!
Chris Mac needs no explanation, he is the merch king. Look at this pic!
Doing merch ain’t so bad. I covered for Chris Mac from time to time when he had to make an obligatory Slurpie run at the Athens Popfest. No matter. We love Chris! We must get him another pin that says “I *heart* customers.” He lost his. If you ever see one, please send it to: po box 24, oakville, ct, 06779 usa. Thanks.
And the unexpected helper comes in the form of Matthew from California, who stood by the door ready and willing to go fetch pizza or look threatening. The best part was the t-shirt he was wearing that said "INSECURITY." People would look at it quickly and assume that he was the bouncer! Here's Matthew on the left with Panda Riot, Smittens & Kevin from L'il Hospital:
We miss you, Matthew!
