    Anyone going to fest this year? Oct 27-29
    I'm riding up with my partner and a couple friends. It'd be cool to hang out with some new people that weekend if anyone's around.
    We're only going to a couple shows bc $$ but we're gonna hit up some local trails and parks.

    Fuck yes dude!!! I'd love to meet up with you. I'm going to the Hum and against me shows on Saturday. The venues we're gonna be at are Bo diddly plaza, 8 Seconds, and the boxcar (some of our fav local bands are gonna be at that one and it's free.)
    Dude against me is my favorite band and reinventing is my fav full album by them. I'm so stoked!
    What shows are you most interested in?

    I'm excited to see the Lillingtons this year- Huge Ramones fan (I'm old enough to have seen them live more than once) and Death by Television is as close as you're going to get if you weren't fortunate enough to have been born in time go see Joey et al live... There are going to be a ton of amazing bands (fucking Mustard Plug and Pegboy for crying out loud!), but IMO, the highlight of the event will be Gainesville's own Hot Water Music. Fucking amazing band, especially live.

    I'm probably a lot older than most of the other contributors here, since came to Gainesville in 1991 for college, and so this line up is full of "classic rock" for me. I nearly burned a groove through my vinyl version of Pegboy's Three-chord Monte/Strong Reaction album and Mustard Plug's Skapocalype Now! was a soundtrack.

    Incidentally, there are also some rumblings that world-class douche Richard Spencer is going to be speaking at UF sometime that same weekend having been previously put off for security reasons, and after threatening a lawsuit.. I'm guessing there will be lots of covers of this song, and it should be interesting to have a neo nazi in town with a ton of punks...

    I live in Orlando and have friends in Gainsville. I'm always looking to make new friends. Maybe we could meet up for some outdoors activities. Lot's of cool places to go.
