Normally I shy away from big festivals and events where there are too many people. I went to ACL about six years ago and said to myself, “never again”. Waiting in line, on the verge of heatstroke, to get money from a robbing ATM only to stand in another line to purchase $5 bottles of water is not my idea of fun. Well, I told this to the right person and he granted me my wish… two all access passes to the fest!! Now, instead of buying water, I’ll be hanging out backstage drinking free booze in the artist’s lounge!! Sweet! Not a bad way to celebrate my birthday!
This means I’ll be bugging out of the shop a bit early on Friday and Saturday. Call before you head over to make sure I’m there.
