Hey there WIDRites,
We’re only three days away from Barking Tuna Fest 2011! Everyone at the station is pumped, not just because we’ve got such rockin’, consummate showmen and women coming to party with us, but because so many of you have gone out of your way to show us your love and support. Whether it’s stopping by to get posters for your business, calling the DJs with BTF artist requests, or just yelling at us through car windows that you’re stoked for the show, you’ve heartened us considerably and we can’t wait to hang with you at the show.
As a small favor, if you are coming, would you let us know on Facebook? Night one is here and night two is here. It’s just exciting to see who’s coming and there are quite a few of you that I’ve yet to meet in person, so knowing your mug makes the random hugging less awkward.
If you don’t have your tickets yet, links are as follows: Night 1 – DJ Boone, U.S.S.A., Neil Hamburger, Coma Nova, and Bad Indians and Night 2 – Ty Beat vs. Jaws That Bite vs. Nunca Duerma, Self Says, French Horn Rebellion, Mexicans With Guns, and Orchard Lounge.
For those who’ve been asking, Neil Hamburger will be going on around ten. He’s a big name, but a middle of the night kind of gent, so don’t miss him because of some misguided belief in being fashionably late.
One final note to the fellas who’ve tempted me with offers of marriage, those who show up to BTF will be given preferential treatment once the Odysseus-worthy Ithician suitor trials begin. Just something to think about.
