Kind mamas? Jam band/deadheads/fest folk come together! - Page 7

post #121 of 149

Heck, yeah, I would go to All Good by myself, if I was free and someone was watching the kiddos! After all, it's a festival! -  not like heading out to a remote wilderness and camping all by yourself.

Hey Mamas!

I am so happy to have stumbled upon this thread today! Read through it all and am feeling fairly confident that I could make it to a few festies this summer w my 7 mo Ryder. I am almost certain about Telluride Bluegrass which I am currently tryin to manifest, and bought tickets for an herbal festival in the Cascadia Wildlands because I am studying to be an herbalist. I also was thinking about goin to Rainbow Gathering because I will need to be in the PNW anyway. Any of you have some tips for making long road trips w babes? I'm not worried about bein at the fests much, but am super wary of the long car trip. I'm thinkin we're just gonna have to take like a week to get anywhere out west as I am in MN currently. Any suggestions? I would be GRATEFUL!

 

I luckily make it to quite a few shows even though I have such a youngin'. I am way Grateful to my ma for helpin w/ my lil lovey when I need a break. Bein a single mom I need to get out and shakedown every now and then! Hopin to connect w/ some of you ladies!

I would definitely do All Good by myself...then again I would head out to the remote wilderness and camp by myself as well! haha!treehugger.gif

 

 

 

Much love and many blessings!

You bet I would go by myself!  You never know who you might meet!

 

Anyone headed to the Barter Faire this year (WA)?

 

Where is everyone planning to go this summer?  Looking for new inspiration!

post #124 of 149

I'd like to jump in here! I wasn't into jam bands and festivals at all until I met my husband, who was (and is) all about it! My first show was Panic back in 2005 when I was 7 months pregnant with my first, and I haven't looked back!

 

We are hoping to go to Telluride this year, and Wakarusa (it's super close) and we'll probably go see Dave's festival in Chicago (not really a jam band thing, but still fun).

Hi, Mamas!

 

I want to go to the Rainbow Gathering this year.  I see it will be in WA, which is up the way from me.  But, I don't know how to find information about it.  I know it's in July, so I have a few months, but I need to keep it on my mind and prepare for it now so that I can make it in July. 

 

Is there a good site to keep track of the Gathering progress, location, etc? 

 

Also...if there's anyone in the bay area going up, can we get to know each other and maybe a car-free mama and toddler (me and mine) could ride up with you? 

 

I don't know any Family, that I know of.  I want to get to "know" folks before I go up, but the online stuff I'm finding isn't helping.

So who's going to see Furthur this summer?

post #127 of 149

I don't even know who Further is. redface.gif

 

Is there seriously no one from MDC going to the Rainbow Gathering?  I would have thought this thread is where the fam with fam would be.

Did anyone go to HIgh Sierra Music Fest this year?  A great family friendly festival with lots of different music :)

Go to Further if you can it's soo much more headdy than a rainbow gathering! I'm not going to see Further this year and haven't been for a few...

Sweet, I didn't know this tribe was here. I was just suggesting something like this on the BM tribe! I am dreaming of going to Oregon Country Fair this year but there is no way I can afford it. Be kind

post #131 of 149

Hey mamas! 

 

DH and I are going to see Further at the end of July. They are coming to this little podunk town next to my little podunk town in SC! 

 

DH is a huge Panic fan (I'm not crazy about them but enjoy a few songs). My first show was last year when I was 3 month pg. All I wanted to hear was Tall Boy and it was looking like they weren't going to play it. I was tired by the end of night so I was sitting down. And they encored with Tall Boy. lol

 

We've got some good bluegrass festivals around here (I live in SC so we go to NC a lot). 

 

My favorite band right now is Acoustic Syndicate. LOVE.

Further was so great. I danced my booty off-couldn't walk the next day. I wish it wasn't so frackin hot down here, the kiddos would have had a blast!

How was Sunshine?  I've been wanting to see the newest Furthur all summer.  I was able to send DH to All Good.  (I surprised him with tix and a ride! :) )  But, nothing but local bluegrass and an amazing Dead cover band called Born Cross-Eyed so far for me this summer.

  We do have our local festie, Terrapin Hill, coming up in the foothills of KY.  We're bringing DS(4).  Hopefully it's cooled off a little by then!  We brought him to a grip of shows and festies when he was younger, but it's been a while.  Can't wait!  I've been working on crocheting some tails for the family! I love dancing to bluegrass while shaking my tail!  So fun!

Oooh, did you say "tails," Mama? Are you a furry? I've been looking to meet other furry mamas!

 

We are finally going to get to a bluegrass festival in late August, the Hickory Festival in Northeast PA. We haven't been to a festival since 2009. We're going to go up five days before the festival starts, and just camp and enjoy being in the mountains. Grass Stained Genes and Well Strung are playing, among others. It should be real nice!

hmmm....headscratch.gif...maybe I am?!  Don't know.  Really, just a bunch of holmies and I have liked dancing with tails for many years.  Is there a name for my kid of freakiness?!@  Cool!

 

So, anyone doing Panic tour!?bouncy.gif

Maybe... it's up to you, really (if you want to use the term or not)! "Furries" run the gamut from people (very few!) who think they actually are an animal trapped in human form, to people who just think it's fun to draw cartoon animals, to people who like to wear tails and ears when they go out, or people who like to wear full mascot-style animal costumes, and anything in between! Me, I just have a love of costuming, and I love the playfulness and whimsy of the other people I meet at Furry events. (just for fun I changed my avatar to a picture of me wearing a dragon tail smile.gif

 

 

....and back on topic! - our family is going to the Hickory Festival (small bluegrass festival in NE PA) next weekend. Nothing large-scale for us this year.

Hi everyone! 

 

We have a new feature that allows forum members to create "clubs" of their own that have many of the same benefits of a forum, including multiple threads, a member's list, and group messaging. All tribes are invited to switch from the one-long-thread here in FYT to the new Social Groups. You can read more about it hereLet me know if you have any questions but please post to that thread so I can keep everything in one place. smile.gif

Yes!  I am going to the Brooklyn, NY show on 9/17.  Anyone else? Rainbow.gif

Bump! What tours and festies are you beautiful mamas hitting up this year?

I'm in the process of unjobbing/WHAMING whatever I can to save up for a bus which I hope to get in late June. Then I hope to hit a tour over the rest of the summer and a couple of festivals too. I hope to set up a decent kitchen in my bus and sell vegan food and bus-brewed Kombucha on shakedown to make ends meet over the summer. It would be awesome to run into some MDC mamas!
