BAND SUBMISSIONS Band submissions are closed.
PRE-SALE TICKETS Donate via paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org, select “sending to a friend,” and list your name in the notes of the transaction. That’s it! Since this whole thing is for charity, you are welcome to donate more than the asking price – rest assured, it will go toward our two amazing charity partners.
$40 – weekend
$45 – weekend w/ commemorative PRFBBQ cup
≥ $45 – weekend w/ cup (and kudos forever)
VOTING Pre-sale ticket holders will receive the voting survey + list of band submissions. Anybody who picks up a pre-sale ticket before April 4th will be able to see the band submissions and vote on 27 slots by choosing the 27 bands (of the 75 band submissions) they most want to see. We are keeping the band submission list private out of respect to bands who may not want the World Wide Web to know they submitted.
This Friday will mark a deadline. The point past which you will not be able to vote on the band ballot for what is (in my humble opinion) the best DIY music event on earth. For a mere $40 donation you can support and/or attend what some have called “the gathering of the huggalos” (hugs optional).
It’s a party and benefit (this year for TPAN and The Long Walk Home) that features food, DJs, beer, fizzy water, friends, music, and hugs (hugs optional). There may even be a literary component.
It’s my favorite weekend of every year.
If you would like to throw in, paypal me a $40-per-pass donation at email@example.com
If you do it in the next couple of days you will be able to have a say in which bands play (ballot to come!)
If you are part of a musical endeavor that would like to play for a crowd thirsty and enthusiastic music fans, email a submission (link to music or video) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again: if you are unfamiliar, YOU ARE WELCOME.
Let me know if you have ANY questions.
