With answers like that I'll never be able to plan a fest.

I'm thinking that, before trying to host an event, you'd do better to find one you can get to and meet some people. Usually by the time someone's opening his home to a bunch of absintheurs, he knows a fair number of the attendees in real life . . . and has figured out how these things operate through experience. Also, where the hell are you? Major transportation hub = good. BFE = bad.

The logistics: People bring booze to share. They provide their own transportation and place to stay. Hosts often provide crashing space for those on limited budgets (thanks again, Slackjaw!) and usually arrange ground transport from the nearest transportation hub (thanks again, Skeeter!).

Typically, people kick in toward food and such for a larger event. Kirk brings sausages. Absomphe brings cheese. Heady P brings Slerpis. Or would, if he were real. Etc.

... the more frightening it becomes!


PW! Regional fests are also possible----FL?


--------------------
Life without absinthe! I cannot imagine it! For me it would be impossible!
I should hang,drown or shoot myself into infinitude,out of sheer rage at the continued cruelty and injustice of the world-but with the divine nectar of Olympus I can defy misfortune and laugh at poverty, as though it were the merest Bagatelles!

Depends on whether you want the A-list or the B-list.

I'm proudly smack in the middle of the C-list myself, which means a round-trip coach plane ticket from PDX, an Econo-Lodge room, and three "Endangered Species" brand 88% Cocoa chocolate bars.

Fees rise from there.

So...

I am just now sitting here sipping on a glass of the modified Farom Old Blanche.
Figured I'd use this Italian thread for that.

I gotta say, it's nice! Better balanced than the first one I got and certainly a fine absinthe!
I hope to God that you will have this at the Italian absinthe party. (I'm still trying hard to find a flight ticket down there that won't cost me my house...)

Hell, you should make that a release party for the Farom Old Blanche!
It's really a nice addition to a segment that I think is just overly flooded with La Bleues.
I'm getting really bored with those and currently, among Blanches, there are four that I really like and this is one of them.

The best damn absinthe Italy has to offer, as far as I know.

He can provide music AND unintentional comedy.

Probably for far less than the price of a C-lister like me. Just a Greyhound ticket and a couple of 40s before the party.

Our trailer was stolen. Please help!

October 20, 2013


FRIDAY, OCT 19: We woke to some bad news – a team of thieves stole our entire trailer in Portland, OR early this morning from the Red Lion Hotel parking lot.

But in the face of adversity, we’re pushing on – we are cobbling together equipment to play our show tonight in Seattle, and we’re still on for our dates on the East Coast and Europe. To all those who’ve listened in, tweeted about us, come to our shows, and connected with us in all those other ways: your love in each and every city has been invaluable in keeping us afloat.

We’d appreciate it so much if you would help us replace our stolen equipment. For now, we’ve enabled donations on our website at the link below.

Donate through PayPal

A complete list of what we lost is below. We’re still itemizing, but we are estimating it’s around $20,000. Even the smallest donation will help.

CC Drum set w/hardware in flight cases
Cymbals with flight case
Guitar Amp – Fender Deluxe Reissue in flight case
Gibson Les Paul electric guitar- Goldtop reissue
Fender Telecaster electric guitar- Tobacco Sunburst
Pedaltrain Jr. guitar pedal board w/ assorted guitar pedals
Martin Acoustic Guitar in rectangular flight case
King Baritone Saxophone
Shure Beta 98 microphone
M-Audio 88-key midi keyboard controller in soft roller case
(2) guitar stands
KORG drum pad
Scarlet SI-2 recording interface

To our friends and fans in Portland, please keep an eye out for our equipment and the trailer itself, which is a white and orange U-Haul 6×8, license number GDX050.
