    Sometimes last.fm recommends the strangest things to me, but this actually looks really awesome. Who knew.

    Since I'm broke, this will be a nice alternative to ATP.

    And you can volunteer for 7 hours that weekend to get your pass (and a T shirt). I am super excited about this festival now.

    word! glad to see the positive reply to this festival. You guys should check out the local NC undercard. There are some great NC bands that will be playing, that unfortunately haven't gained National exposure outside of the east coast. Last I heard there were only 80 all access wristbands left.

    Its going to be pretty amazing to see No age open for Public Enemy.

    By all access wristband, do you mean the $85 one?

    yeah not the 120 VIP wristbands.
    The big shows which are, Rosebuds, Broken Social Scene.. Love language, No age, Public Enemy are 30 bucks each. Those wont sell out for a while.
    Also there is a club own wristband which is 40 I think.

    There will be additions to the lineup coming next week!

    Sorry, I was wrong about the wristbands.. Turns out it IS the VIP wristbands that are close to selling out. There are only 10 left.. but there are plenty of the regular all access wristbands. I know they tried to get Pavement and Modest Mouse... but that fell threw...

    Anywho hope you can make it out.

    Holy crap! This actually looks amazing, and I will be flying to N.C. this September with my mom anyway... Looks like a sure thing! Very stoked I will actually get to see Broken Social Scene this tour. Very, very stoked.

    Just saw Ivan Howard, singer for The Rosebuds play a very special solo show. Can't wait to see the band at Hopscotch. The Love Language was in attendance tonight too, and are playing a show here in Wilmington tomorrow night. I was at their CD release party in Chapel Hill about a month ago and it was a spectacular show. Long story short, I'm really looking forward to this festival which is just weeks away. Go North Cack.

    I'd like to officially say that this festival was awesome. So well organized and planned out. I cannot wait for next year. Raleigh is really growing on me, and I'm so glad the music scene is getting a boost. Good job guys.

    Did anybody else from the board end up going?

    Just found this video recap of the festival on The Rosebuds' facebook page....

    Edit: Actually, it's a bunch of stills. Wish it was a real moving picture.
