Loved, loved, loved Brainbow. I could have listened to them all night.

And I tried my first fishboat.

Life is good.

Oof...

I can vouch for the fact that Brainbow was at LEAST as much fun to play with as it was to watch... same goes for the group-singalong-chorus of All The Young Dudes with 2Cow... I know it was early Saturday, and most people missed it, but the Whoa Nellie! set RAWKED and we were happy and sweaty... good times.

Apocalypso was all I'd hoped (thanks for the Nirvana cover!), and Ugly Stick was fuggin TRIUMPHANT. So sorry it got rained out, but I had a ball standing in the mud grinning my ass off. My pants are drying out on the shower curtain right now. We're about to head back to the park for our 1st FISHBOAT of the weekend.

Can't wait to play with Main Street Gospel and the Uke Man tomorrow. I still love ComFest more than I hate it. By a hair. A wet hair. A wet, stanky, unwashed hippy hair.

Oh, also, Lydia Loveless is my new goddess, and the vocal mic at the Offramp stage Saturday tasted like leftover beer puke. Ugh.

walked out of the house to head down this afternoon and it was POURING! the traditional comfest rainpour is to be expected though and i was glad that my walk was only a few minutes...

caught the end of ugly stick's set and liked it a bunch. earwig sounded great and i was glad to see you after the show for a hug, lizard! so good to see people and catch up today...one of my favorite comfest components...

miranda sound was bittersweet for me...they are in my upper echelon of columbus bands and one of the first i heard after moving here. they truly give everything they've got when they play and it shows. today was no exception...i was right down front, my ears are blown out and i'm a happy girl.

walked home a little bit ago, had a garden burger and an avocado. i know that food at comfest is part of the whole thing, but i always end up just coming home to eat.

thinking about heading back down later after a little recharge.

Well, I ditched out on today, but I got my fix on Friday. Greenlawn Abbey had enough good songs to make me look for a CD, my first time seeing them. Guinea Worms were awesome, could it be the Year of the Worm? Is that in the Chinese calender somewhere? Necropolis sounded good, another first timer, I will have to look for recordings. Slave Apartments, what can I say, the jazz version of "Bottle Island" notwithstanding, it was gratifying to see 'em rock on "Spasm". "Down to High St." gets my vote for anthem of the '90's. That was definitely a magic moment for me Friday night. Brainbow was a beautiful way to end the evening. Headache preempted seeing Horseshit at Carabar, had to crash. Really wanted to see El Jesus tonight, but I just couldn't handle waiting through the rain and storms that appeared to be coming. Almost got to see a tornado south of Kenton though. The sky was ready...

Great times on day 2:

Apocalypso -- Nirvana cover was great, Gramps on stage singing Batman FTW!
Miranda Sound -- my farewell show for them as I probably won't go to the Ravari Room show in August
More delicious food -- another fishboat, another Bahama Mama, and a gyro

I'm done with Comfest for this year since I'm staying in tomorrow to watch the Euro 2008 final between Germany and Spain.

Sorry about the horrendous sound quality, this is mostly just to highlight The Kyle Sowashes. I really think Kyle should rename his band "Kyle Sowash and the Injured Parties."

(Sorry for the shakycam/"Cloverfield" filming style...}

A little taste of the storm from the Merch Booth, when the rain was just starting:



And then it picked up. That's Mr. Duffy telling the ladies they can stay, but with one exception:

SHIT yes!!!

That was AMAZING... I'm never gonna look at a chocolate chip cookie the same way again... then, I went home, et me a fishboat, and watched the rerun of George Carlin hosting the first-ever SNL. I think my head might esplode.

One more day! If y'all come see Main Street Gospel at Offramp this afternoon, come up and give me some shit... or sugar, whichever you think I deserve.

Word, Deadsea fucking killed it last night, and your plea for moderate insanity instead of complete insanity was cracking me up.

I finally got to play comfest (rained out the last time 3 years ago). I had a blast. Looking forward to today's trip.

day two started with the best whoa nellie! set i've seen to date. put me in the best mood for the day. all in all though, it was kinda a bittersweet day. 333 were AMAZING, but it was their last. it was the last miranda for me as well. again, ruled, but sad. i swear i've waited 213 years to see ugly stick again, but since melissa and i were outside of the tent, by the 3rd song of getting monsooned on, we remembered "hey, don't we live across the street, with lots of towels and dry clothes and kittens and bongs and stuff?" so even more amazing but sad. heading back to our house, we were rounding up friends we passed running in the rain and told them to come to our apartment and dry off offered up dry shirts and ninja warrior repeats to everyone. two of the people we rescued from the storms ended up getting engaged during one of my emcee rants by the offramp stage (congrats to adrian X and steph!!! nice ring!) missed earwig because of the storms (and bongs) but by the time i took the emcee mic at the end of red dahlia, i swear to fuck the rock just wouldn't stop. pummelpummelpummel. and then as soon as i was done introing the jesus i hadda walk to my shift at hi5, walk behind the bar, and start serving girly drinks to columbus' fattest vampires. weak!!!

but, i got my alison rose ohio-cassette shirt i've been craving, i got to see all those folks you only get to see at comfest, i got to prove once again why i SHOULDN'T be allowed to have a mic at the 'fest, i got to see bovee with steel drums backing him, got to do mid-day diana ross style costume changes, and fell in love with comfest all over again.

Kyle Sowashes, Ugly Stick and Miranda Sound (pre-reunion) all ruled.
If anyone here knows of someone who shot video after the rain (or of the rain), in the Off Ramp tent during Earwig's set, please PM me. I think that the video that was set up by the sound board got taken down before Earwig hit the stage. If there's any footage floating around of Earwig's set, I'd love to get a copy. Thanks.

black47 blew my mind. A frathouse band with kenny g saxin' and 311 raps. I watched their last three songs from afar with my jaw on the ground. So this is why I never go to the Dublin Irish Festival. Well I went when Richard Thompson played. How about him for Comfest next year if they decide to keep having ringers.

I didn't go. I worked Friday, didn't want to get soaked during the day Saturday and I had gigs Friday and Saturday nights. I was out of town on Sunday. But my son went. His first time.

His first frustration was parking. A total lack of signs. Unorganized traffic. People jay walking in front of moving cars (my son has been driving for 1 year and several people walked right out in front of him.

Essentially, people were acting like assholes.

Finally he gave up and found his way to a Nationwide garage and was able to park without having to dodge assholes.

He made his way to Comfest, met up with friends, heard some amateurish crap and then made his way to the jazz stage where he listened to Pete Mills and Tony Monaco kick all kinds of ass. Ultimately he had a good time. Didn't see any boobs. Didn't smoke dope. Didn't drink. Ignored the obnoxious drunks and stoners. He had a good time.

Well, despite all the rumors to the contrary, Starship DID show up and rocked out on the Off-Ramp Stage. Definitely THE BEST PERFORMANCE OF COMFEST 2008. I was able to capture a bit of "We Built This City" on my camera (the battery ran out after about a minute-and-a-half ... sorry about that).
