Should be a good one this year... Love HWM, so two nights is going to be awesome.. Samiam 30th anniversary, and Mustard Plug returns again this year! Tried to update the wiki, but couldn't find the edit button.

saw Murder by Death at a festival back in like 2010, they're nice as fuck. Cursive, forgot all about those guys, but I used to listen to "The Ugly Organ".

I moved to Gainesville in 1990 for college when I was 18, so just like Samiam, it's my 30th anniversary too (boy am I getting OLD!!) I've been to every "fest" and can confirm it's always a good time. The scene back then was amazing. The highlight was probably Fugazi in 92/93.. I'm from DC, so it wasn't my first show, but I'm still hoping for a reunion haha.

There were some amazing bands from this town and incredible shows with national acts here in the 90's, and I'm so happy the fest still features our home grown bands as the centerpiece.

It's a really good time if you can make it.

LOL

I doubt it.. The Covid fatigue is strong in this state, even in Gainesville- the lone island of liberalism in the heart of the dark red that is N. FLA (I'm the only one wearing a mask in the few stores I've visited over the past couple of months), and our Governor is Trump's lapdog so full re-opening is happening irrespective of the facts that it's all just getting worse...

We'll have full herd immunity by the end of October. Plus I've heard that large quantities of Pabst Blue Ribbon inoculate you against any affliction, and your beard is like nature's hospital mask... With 80-90% beard saturation (we're talking about Gainesville here after all) I'm sure it will work out!

Probably postponed longer than that. Experts are throwing a lot of numbers in the air right now but one of em is 7 years for this to get under control.

Go vote please. Get rid of this emperor palpatine chester cheeto jerkoff out of here.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $115.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
