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.

If you are camping there are plenty of places. Of my several years on the road I have found Gains villa very easy to find a place to squat. Great town. Been here all week and it's been so easy to find a sleeping space.

Total amount

Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $90.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $90.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
