    yeah, he was responding to me calling him out. Unfortunately, every statement that does get made is going to be carefully worded PR garbage. They will never address the fact that they simply sold more tickets than the area was capable of handling.

    they have this same rule at Coachella. although the bartenders will serve liquor just on ice if you ask nicely, in my experience.

    I like how he posted a photo of his 2nd recent dog. Since his other died when his place went up in flames. Like 2nd time is a charm.

    Maybe you should blame the fire marshall for approving the capacity? Thats who has the final say when this had been proposed to begin with. If they said thats all the tickets the fest could sell, thats what they did. I mean if we really want to know how to run an event there, lets ask the Olympic organizers and Insomniac. Where there was 3 times as many people in the same area. The thought process it would seem is that everything being so spread out made for less of a clusterfuck. It kinda did do that. If the arena was open all the way Saturday, there wouldnt have been an influx of people everywhere else, making it seem more crowded than it really was.

    No, I should not blame the fire marshall. i should blame the people that don't care about the enjoyment of the people they are selling tickets to. I am talking about every single logistical thing about the festival that did work because of the amount of attendees there. It still seemed incredibly crowded on Sunday. I guarantee that if Saturday were exactly like Sunday, everybody would be plenty pissed about everything that happening, since they didn't have the alleviation of those really major problems to feel like a band-aid.

    That is exactly why I've gone back to FYF so many times and why I have such devotion to them. Back when it was just an Echo/Echoplex/Jensen Rec thing, it was a smallish group of very similar-minded folks who went to that and every other show in the area. As its grown bigger, those people have continued to come to the fest even as more people have arrived. It's one of the few fests where I can go without anyone and, within 10 minutes, have a group of friends around me without even trying. I didn't make it this year, and it sounds like it was something of a mess, but they do so many things right that I will continually give them the benefit of the doubt.

    It's the Fire Marshall's job to figure out how many people can safely fit in an area. It is the festival organizer's job to figure out how many of those people they can accommodate while still making a positive experience for the customers and turning a profit.

    This didn't happen as much as it has in the past, which was one of the biggest bummers.

    There's not much hate for Joyce Manor on this board, it's more people giving you a hard time because you mention that they're your favorite band every single time you come into this thread. Glad the set was good though.

    that's ok. i feel like i'm one of the only people here who just doesn't get the darkside hype. saw them back in january and it was a snoozefest. the reviews others were posting had me thinking i either wasn't at the same show or wasn't on the same drugs as everyone else. they aren't horrible, they just aren't nearly as interesting as people are making them out to be imo. the mirror was cool though. it should become sentient and start it's own band since it already has a built in following.

    oh yea and the opener for that january show was one of the most agonizing sets i've had to sit though in quite a while: noodley saxophone train to nowheretown that just dragged on and on and on...

    It would of been worse there, I drove by and I dont think hard summer had even half as many people as FYF this year. I heard the parking and leaving the area sucked and noise curfew was at 11pm. Havent heard if there using the venue again for Day of the Dead or any other future events.

    I'm kinda with you. I sampled them for about 20 minutes to see what the fuss was about. It was interesting and you can tell they are talented but it didn't hold me. I did like the cylinder laser, though. Maybe it was fatigue from all the logistical hassles, being old or just being a guitar guy at heart.
    I have been to concerts. I will go to concerts in the future.

    Day of The Dead is in Pomona, so no. But theyre probably going to evaluate everything for next year when the park re opens and they apply for a permit to have Summer back there or not.

    I more thought it was because, while good, Joyce Manor isn't on the same level as Slint, so there was really no reason to see them at FYF.

    Anyone notice "Beautiful Life" by Dewey Cox was played on the main stage after the Strokes.

    I thought that was neat.
