"ehhh to be honest, i really didnt like voodoo fest. it was trashy, cops were being huge jerks to anyone and everyone, almost was killed in a cab ride (long story lol), and they did nothing to help the environment (no recycling when water bottles…"
"not many local raves in south mississippi where im at but there are a ton in new orleans so i try and get down there. been to some nifty industrial raves although that style of music is hard to dance to lol. bonnaroo is my favorite though <3…"
Samm, I sent you a message, and I just saw you are at a friend's party tonight, which may be why you haven't responded. Just want to be sure you know the jam tomorrow is off. I'm sick and can't host; wish I could, but no one would want to be around me right now. :(
I have to agree about only going during the day. Back during Halloween there was a Marine that was stabbed (in uniform for heavens sake) and since then the military is kind of shady of that area. I have a cousin who works down there and he even dislikes being out at night. I prefer going to the museums, aquarium, zoo, etc down there now rather than hitting up burb. street or french quarter. I got that out of my system a long time ago.
For Saturday make sure you bring some of your music...we tend to play all types...slow, fast, country, rock, hip hop, electronica, etc. I myself prefer electronica because I can just feel myself melt into the beat of the music and I feel totally free.
Oh crap..I just realized the Drum Circle was last night. I have the worst memory...
I was going to hit up bonaroo this year too, but I will have to see not only money wise where I am but where the Navy is with my disability stuff. That sucks about voodoo fest though...I guess it really doesn't surprise me either. I'm not a big fan of new orleans as much as I was when I first moved out here. There are just too many terrible people and terrible things happening down there. I figured the music wasn't going to be everything I wanted to hear either...I just can't get into hooping to much hip hop or rock. I guess I need to find some more festivals that are nearby...I know Austin just had Freezerburn...it was their winter burn event. I don't even know if LA or AL have any others.
It's Austins Burning Man...It happens at the end of May and is 4 days....it costs about 90 a person, but there is a catch. To get in you have a one week span (this week, actually) to mail in an envelope (that must be decorated to even be considered) with a money order and order form. They will only choose 2,470 people to attend...I am dying, dying to go because my cousin says it is amazing. Here is the website:
