bummer john!

how late does your event go?

perhaps we can encourage our participants to head your way after we're done since we end fairly early??

also, if you would like to volunteer at this event, please email:

columbusmusiccoop@gmail.com

this event is 100% volunteer run! we need people to pour beer and drinks, check ids, act as security, grill hot dogs and lots o' other stuff. this year we are going to have 2 hour shifts for the first time ever too!
and every volunteer receives a thank you goodie bag from the columbus music co-op with free drink tickets, gift certificates and other fun stuff!

last year's parking lot blowout has already funded over $7,000 in grants to musicians without health insurance!! hoping to double that number this year!

JB, this is great. Is it weird that I can ID so many of those bands by their shoes?

ok, as in previous years, we're gonna spotlight all of our bands so you can get to know them (if you don't already!)

kicking off the day on at 3 p.m. sharp:
APOCALYPSO!

Image

(confession: i used to not be a fan of steel drums. then i went to a sweet dance party with apocalypso at carabar and i was converted!)

from their myspace:
Quote:
The band was born out of a friend's wedding in 2001. The three of us were all fans of the Caribbean beat and in combination with our irrepressible urges to play Black Sabbath, we formed this band. We also shared the condition of having reoccurring morbid thoughts of the apocalypse. We hope you don't take this the wrong way, and we also hope you'll decide to get off your ass and come dance the Soca with us.


Check them out here:

I loved that Apocalypso's 3 word description in the Comfest guide was, "Dreamy Boy Band." love it.

Parking Lot Blowout Band Spotlight # 2 is

DEERHEAD!

Deerhead will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. We love their classic/southern rock vibe! I wanted to hype them today because they are playing a show at The Shelf tonight (after Red White and Boom!)

Image

You can check out their music and find more info about them here:

when i played deerhead during my guest dj set on cd101 last week my parents were sending me text messages about how much they loved them!

have we mentioned that for the first time ever, we will have souvenir mugs that you can drink your delicious PBR out of? They come in 4 colors with the CMC and Surly Girl Saloon logos and say "here comes your weekend!"

also, quick volunteer update:

we are getting close to be booked with volunteers for the event which is awesome! but...we still really, really need people from 8 p.m.-close, especially at our food tent. interested? email columbusmusiccoop@gmail.com

have a happy fourth of july donewaiting!
:)
