I'll be brief, as I have a shitload of Sub Pop stuff to take care of.
Volunteers: They all ruled. Seriously. Laura Stalions first and foremost kicked ass. She was everywhere at once taking care of anything that needed taking care of - and no one even asked her to do it. She just knew.
Tube booth volunteers ruled. Thank you. That was one busy booth. We sold out of 500 tubes before the third day was over!!
This was really the first year where I was inundated with folks wanting to help.
I wanted to check out everyone's booth and visit a little more but I was just so busy at my booth
The new venue was awesome. It really made you feel like you part of the festival, and in turn I think folks felt like we were a major part of the programming. It was the first year where I felt legit.
There were a lot of highlights for me: the annual road trip with Jay Ryan and Peveto. Dinners with the Bird Machine. Kevin (the new Bird Machiner) and I playing basketball at the BBQ and becoming the reigning champs of 2 on 2. Any chance to see Mike King is always a treat. I love that little guy. Going to lunch with Andy, Burwell, and Mike King. Hanging a little with Ryan Nole. Sitting next to Dirk and Eleanor was super cool.
Blah, blah, blah... I had great time. Thanks to anyone I haven't ackowledged.
Sorry to anyone I may have offended or touched inappropriately.
Seeing everyone was awesome. I wish I had more time to hang with everyone.
