02/04/2004: "festivals."

Trying to help advise/curate a 3-day-long band festival in the late spring and it's sorta blowing my brain cells. I've put together band festivals/parties before and know the nervewracking process well. But it's actually harder now since a lot of the bands I used to be pals with years ago have gotten too big and, consequently, tell me things like "Shit, I'd love to play that gig again, but we're gonna be touring Europe..."

Here's a piece of the rant I sent out today:

Neubauten can't play Roast. The Minibosses can't play Roast this year, either -- after that two-page spread they got in Wired this month, they're too busy gettin' down with the cash money and the honeys to give a shit about 8-bit video game covers. "What's gotten into you?!" I said, weeping. "Do you even recognize yourself anymore under all those fur coats and bottles of Cristal and Media Lab-provided "whorable computing" chicks? Do you even remember the intricate lead guitar line to 'Metroid'? Those were the days! Remember that time you played 'Contra' with three drum solos and seven different time signatures? You guys used to be fuckin' hardcore, man! That copy of 'Wizards and Warriors' you signed? I had it framed! I had every mp3 you ever did, man!"

Geeta.


My buddy Jake offered this in the way of consolation, in his response:

Geeta is a bit like the Silver Surfer of nerd cool. She always stumbles upon these obscure groups and neat things, and then lumbering popular culture finds them and devours them. From there it's a long sad descent into sleeping with groupies and pleading with Nicholas Negrop*nte for more of that sweet, sweet crack rock. It's sad really - not just Geeta's continuous frustration at nerds selling out, but also that the best literary metaphor I could come up with was a fucking comic book.

Thanks, Jake, for making me laugh.
