I haven't been to any of the past Blowout, so I'm just curious about some of the details.

How many people can be accommodated at the space? I keep reading things hyping the day and just wondered if there will be a mob of people there. Do people tend to stay for all the bands? I'll be coming from out of town and I'm just paranoid that I'll get there but then not actually be able to get into the event. Are these fear ungrounded?


This one seems to be getting a lot of attention.

My advice: Get there early (4 p.m. is probably a safe bet) and be prepared to stand for several hours.

To event organizers: Are you under any rules as far as capacity goes? Have you ever turned anyone away at the gate because of numbers?

So as you guys probably know, this event is 100% volunteer run and we need help with the following areas:

10 am-2 pm Set up
1:30-4 pm Floaters/Security/CMC tent
3:30-7 pm Bar/Floaters/Security/Front gate/CMC tent
6:30-10 pm Bar/Front Gate/Floaters/Security/CMC tent
9:30 pm-close - Bar/Front Gate/Floaters Security/CMC tent
10 pm- 2 am - Tear Down (tear down has ended approx 12:30 am the last 2 years)

Our volunteers get free admission, some free drinks on the CMC and goodie bags to say thank you.

If you are interested in helping out, please email columbusmusiccoop at gmail dot com with your top 3 times and shifts and we'll get you scheduled!

Yay! I'm helping!

This means, of course, that someone else will have to volunteer to control the weather.

No, we haven't had to do this before and are under no set rules but depending on attendence this year, we might have to do a one-in/one-out scenario. It's going to be a call by us, our security and front gate folks as to when the lot is maxing out and becoming a safety concern. We think the lot can hold approximately 400 or so max.

All we can say is get there early (and/or secure a volunteer spot now!) and don't plan to wander in and out of the parking lot if its filling up quickly or you see a line forming, as you might not be able to get back in immediately.

Gates will open at 2pm and music will start at 3pm.

FYI: Marshall Barnes has a weather control machine. According to him, he veered Katrina away from New Orleans to prevent a direct hit. Talk to him but I can assure you that godliness does not come cheap.

I see bands listed on the flyer, but is there a semi-official order/time of who plays when?

We will all simply have to do our parts to keep the projected weather on course by detaining as many butterflies* as possible until then.

It's cool. It's like me wishing I saw Cheap Trick with Tom Petersson.
And then I did.
And it was great.

Too bad you didn't get to see her sing main vocals on a cover of AC/DC's T.N.T. I don't know how often they covered that song but maybe there's a video of it somewhere.

oi oi oi

I think reunions work best when they're comfortable. Baggage should jettison before practice.

i would like to encourage folks to sign up early to volunteer because some of the popular shifts (i.e. certain bar shifts) are already full!

Is that true? I don't remember this... maybe she sang the song in a different band? If not, I'm sad that I have no recollection...(which wouldn't be the first time).
