    If you are a fan of metal with really awesome lyrics, I encourage you all to check out Dryland.  They are AMAZING!  They have a bandcamp page for those who would like to listen to their music – https://drylandheavyband.bandcamp.com/ 

    Super bummed I won’t be able to see them, due to timing issues, but I  highly recommend them!

      Stewart, Thanks for sharing the link to Dryland.

      Can’t wait to see Thunderpussy!

    Really?  You’re bringing in a band (TP) I probably can’t even get past the filter?  Gross.

    • JanS May 17, 2017 (12:04 pm)

      well, Brandon, I had no problem listening, so, it’s your filters? They will be there at 10pm…now you know the time…simply don’t go see them :) There will be plenty of other good bands that weekend, I’m sure.

      Brandon, can you remind me the name of the 13th James Bond movie?

      • helpermonkey May 17, 2017 (1:49 pm)

        remind me too what our illustrious president said he could grab with impunity and that countless sources quoted him on. lighten up, francis.  

    • Justducky May 17, 2017 (2:21 pm)

      Sorry you are allowing the name to deter you from seeing them. The name comes from putting women back in power of themselves, hence an all female group. I just saw them at Upstream and the Showbox [2 nights in a row]. I will be there, they put on an amazing show and Molly is quite the front woman. They will be going places, I can guarantee that… 

    • Rob May 19, 2017 (11:21 am)

      Don’t @%$#$ go then. 

  • KR May 17, 2017 (12:00 pm)

    Yesss!!!!  What a great weekend this’ll be!

  • herongrrrl May 17, 2017 (3:45 pm)

    Thunderpussy is amazing!  So excited they will be here!  

  • Elle Nell May 17, 2017 (9:44 pm)

    Such a fun weekend!! I’m sure it will be more packed than ever… sure hope the folks like Brandon, stay home and out of our way!! Let’s continue to enjoy life!!! 

  • RJB May 20, 2017 (9:29 am)

    Thanks Troy and Ben, another great line up…and Thunderpussy Rocks.

  • Carolyn May 21, 2017 (8:16 am)

    I’m excited to see Dusty 45’s!!  Great music and not past my bedtime! :)

    I have a daughter….just seeing it in print is offensive. ….  So nice that  some of you come to the defense when someone voices their free speech concerns over a name that most would find offensive.  Here’s another opportunity….it is gross and disgusting. Just because it has a story behind it that may make it seem reasonable to some  doesn’t make it so.  Nirvana’s Rape Me  is an example….

  • tracy@virago May 24, 2017 (8:11 pm)

    THUNDERPUSSY! Yesssssss! Good job. Can’t stop listening to that 45!

Sorry, comment time is over.
