Kind mamas? Jam band/deadheads/fest folk come together! - Page 5

post #81 of 149
I used to go to music festivals all the time. I also used to be a part of a singer-songwriter association.

Unfortunately, my son is very sensitive to sound so it's a part of my life that I've put on hold.

Wondering if anyone has gone to the Clearwater Festival in NY? We're leaning towards going this weekend with our 2.5 year old...
post #85 of 149
Hello all.

I'm a 22-year-old Pennsylvania native expecting in late August. My SO and I would spend most of the warm weather time on the east coast going to festivals. He's gotten a head start without me this year (on house arrest for two more weeks and it's soo frustrating to watch him go off without me!) but I'm very excited about enjoying the rest of my summer before our darling LO gets here. We're sticking close to home this year (which turns out is waayyy better than we ever imagined!) because my pregnant body does not like being stuck in a car for more than a few hours at a time. We're also getting into more family oriented festivals that we can take LO to next year. Any suggestions for small gatherings in/near PA? Any tips for festival-going in the third trimester?

I have to say that listening to bluegrass really makes me happy. It just makes me feel really really happy! I have been listening to Pandora.com a lot lately. I like the Grateful Dead and Hot Buttered Rum channel. The HBR channel brings some great bluegrass music!

Busymama77...we are also huge WSP fans. WE traveled around a lot seeing them before kids and now see them once a year. We do Rockygrass every year and used to do Telluride Blues and Brews every year before kids. Where do you live?
We live in Missouri. We saw YMSB back in February this year - I was 39 weeks preggers, but still had a kick a$$ time. It wasn't at a festival, though, just at a local venue that they visit every year.
Next year, for absolutely sure - as DH and I are in desperate need of a vacation - we're going to Brewgrass in Asheville. It's over a year away and I'm already getting excited about it!! And possibly Rockygrass in Lyons. I was hoping to go this year, but with a newborn and I was just on maternity leave for 10 weeks, we need to space out our trips this year.

Hey mama I totally recommend you go to the rainbow gathering, its going to be in PA about 35 miles north of Clarion july 1st thru 7th. Its free and there are a lot of kitchens with yummy food. Bring your tent, mat, bag and bowl and you'll do great. Since you are preggers(and if you were BFing too) I recommend you bring a water bottle with a filter on it for extra precaution. Check out Welcome Home and Welcome Here


lovin you sister!

joy

!!! We were hoping to attend this year's gathering (my first,) but when we were poking around a couple of months ago we couldn't find out where it was being held. Thank you so much for sharing this with me. Seriously, you brought tears to my eyes. I am very grateful and so so so excited! I will definitely be attending. Much love.

Mystic Garden Party - Corning, CA:

Anybody going? Anybody know anything about it? Michael Franti's going to be there, and I'd love to see him (again), but don't know anything about it...

Thanks for the info. Feel free to drop me a line. If I'm still working the same job I'll only be able to come the first through the third, but I'm thankful that I'll get to be there at all and it would be wonderful to meet some mellow mamas in real life.

Furthur @ Coney Island this weekend?????

Hi Mamas!

We are bringing the girls to several upcoming Furthur shows, including the 2 this coming weekend in Brooklyn, NY at the Keyspan Ballpark/Coney Island. I have never been there but was wondering if any mamas remember Phish there in 2004 & what the venue is like? We have GA & I am wondering how they set up the field there. Will I be able to throw down our sheet & sit down with the kids?

Anyone else going?
post #93 of 149
Hmmm-just realized our tix are actually lower grandstand seats. so the kids will be on our laps & we won't be setting up blankets. i guess it's better for being able to see since it's a "flat" field & not an amphitheater/lawn type seating. just wondering if this is really going to be the best concert set up with little ones?

I am thinking we are going to want to get in there early so we can try & grab a spot where we have some room for DD1 to dance around. We can wear them both in & out of the venue, & I can wear dd2 whenever i want/need to...

Should be interesting.

VT Furthur cancelled :(

From Furthur.net
July 5th Shelburne Vermont Show CANCELLED
To All Of Our Fans Who've Purchased Tickets To Our July 5 Show in Shelburne, VT:
After days of meetings to address and alleviate last minute concerns being expressed by State and Local Authorities, Furthur is very disappointed to learn that today (6.24), the local authorities, citing an inability to deal with an expected influx of ticketless fans, traffic concerns, and other issues, have revoked the approved permits for the show and have decided to cancel Furthur's concert at Vermont's Shelburne Museum on July 5. As the decision was made by the local authorities so close to the event date, regrettably we are unable to find a suitable alternate venue in Vermont. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience!

Full & complete refunds will be available soon via point of purchase.
If you bought tickets online you'll automatically be refunded.

** Replacement Show Added For July 5 **

We have added a new show on July 5 to replace the recently cancelled show in Vermont.
Furthur will be appearing for an intimate show at
The Sherman Theater - Stroudsburg, PA
A limited amount of tickets will be offered online via pre-sale starting June 25 @ Noon ET.
Public on sale: Saturday, June 26 @ 10:00 AM ET.

We are truly sorry that we couldn't find a suitable venue in Vermont to replace the cancelled Shelburne show, but at this late date, there was nothing available. The Sherman Theatre in Pennsylvania, where we will now be playing on July 5, is a terrific & very intimate venue.

************************************************** ****************
Regretably, tickets for the cancelled July 5 Shelburne will NOT be honored at the Sherman Theater show. We hope to return to Vermont at some time in the future.
************************************************** ****************

Again, our sincere apologies!

GDTS TOO refund info coming soon

I'm not going to any of their shows (by the time I get off of house arrest they're heading for the west coast,) but I wanted to say that I really hope you enjoy yourself! We followed them around a good bit last year (my first show was that spring) and I had a blast. My friends used to take their LOs to Phish shows and the kids loovvedd it.

I used to love to go to shows! I miss it. Now we're lucky if we can make it to Clucking Blossom! (ok, who am I kidding, we always make it to CB! - It's a free show in Fairbanks--free music, free food, free books, art show, painting, etc, the bands even play for free) The main reason is that I now live in Alaska...gotta drive to get to bluegrass festivals, usually pretty far away. I looked for a show to go to that I could take the kids to while I was visiting my folks in VT, but everything was playing at night and in bars. I didn't even realize there was a Phish show the same weekend I came in (and I was busy with alumni stuff anyway). Anyway, thought I'd say hi to you mamas and live vicariously through you all! You don't mind, do you?

I was lucky enough to catch a 5 show run, (both Hartford's, both SPAC's and Mansfield), while DS stayed with his dad and my mother. It was such a great, great time!

Enjoy your show mama!

Bummer, no festies for us this summer. There is just too too much going on! We aren't going to get away to even camp until August, and then it's going to be just a nice quiet family camping trip, no festival. Besides all the busy-ness, I hurt my foot so I don't think I could really do all the walking around that festivals entail. Ah, well, next year. Hopefully we'll catch Sirus Rising and maybe even Great Blue Heron next year. And there's always just regular shows all fall and winter, nice to get a sitter and go to a show with DH. We had the greatest time at Dark Star Orchestra last year!
I did go to Anthrocon last weekend, that felt like a festival, but it was strange having that festival/carnival atmosphere only at a hotel/convention center instead of in the woods. But I guess camping would NOT work with fursuits!! I posted looking for a tribe, but apparently there are NO furries at MDC??? Hard to believe I'm the only furry mama on the boards. I know we have a whole tribe of hairy mamas (which I am one of) but no furries!

Have fun at your shows mamas, and post here so we can all live vicariously!

Jen
