Listen to Episode 96 [audio http://thisweekonlot.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/twol96.mp3]
This week on lot Steve, Katie and Toonces learned that Phish is not the only band playing on NYE. Who knew? We discuss Hidden Track's extensive run down of NYE shows across the land. And remember, TWoL wants to hear about all of your NYE shenanigans so leave us a lot report at 419.NO.WOOKS in all of your tipsy NYE glory. If you are in NYC for Phish, Mule or AoD don't forget about the variety of Phish after parties going on around the city.
During ticket check we were left speechless when we learned that YEMSG tickets are going for as much as $250,000. Since this is clearly not an option, don't forget that you can enter to win NYE tickets from both Cash or Trade and Magic Hat. Toonces also brought a listener question to the table about how to tell if you are being scammed in secondary market ticket sales.
Next, we discussed some 2012 festival news. It's never to early to start planning your summer festie season kids. One of the earliest festivals of the year is Some Kind of Jam 7, held in late April in PA. Wakarusa tickets went on sale last weekend. Check out that one, scheduled for May 31-June 3 in AR. Also, Summer Camp, returning to IL on Memorial Day weekend, will begin announcing its line up this week.
We had fantastic lot reports this week from SCI, Cornmeal, and Skydog. And we of course talked about our recent shows: moe., SCI, 311 and Big Gigantic.
Also, check out the Kickstarter fundraiser to get the Everyone Orchestra album made. The album features a ton of our favorite musicians and promises to be a great example of true improvisation.
Finally, a big shout out to our our patron this week, Stuart, for his generous donation. Always appreciated!
'Til next time, rage on!
