Clingfire! I am looking for the same info. There is absolutely nothing on the website for the show or on the Southside Works website. They both say information will be posted soon, but at this point I doubt we will get any. I am just planning on parking somewhere in the Southside and walking down.
Their web site is devoid of details. I HEARD it's in a parking lot down there. Anyone know where it is? Where can you park? Can you take backpacks in? Do they sell beer?
I paid Erick Gross (Total Knockout Productions) $290.00 for a space to vend tie dye. Same story as I've read elsewhere - he told some tales then he just disappeared, no return calls, no return emails. I tried to believe, and still try to believe, that he wasn't just a crook. But a stand-up guy would have at least called me to tell me the event was cancelled, the money was gone, so sorry, etc. I disputed the $290 through paypal and won, but with no money in his PayPal account, there was nothing they could do to get my money back. ANy news, please email me.

The Lost Sea is fantastic <3.
Festival vendor taken as well.
I was wondering if we can collectively gather information against Erick Gross to put him in jail.
Perhaps a class action law suit.
As a scheduled food vendor for the JamBaloosa, (PRASADAM VEGETARIAN CONCESSIONS), I was really looking forward to participating in this event. Erick Gross initially told us that he had sold thousands of tickets and was expecting 12,000 people to attend. He also gave us an extra large space to set up our operation and in a prime location (for the discounted price of $1500) because he liked the idea of vegetarian food as an alternative to the regular hot dog/hamburger vendors. Where's our money now? Anyone want a vegetarian Corn Dog? I've got lots left over.
Maybe he was really trying to do something and just goofed, although after talking to Kevin Orzechowski, Mines and Meadows and other vendors who were similarly burned, it appears he was not very straightforward or honest in his dealings. He never contacted any vendors to notify them of the cancellation, nor has he responded to emails or phone calls. Now it looks like he's a Wanted Man. The law will be on his butt soon.
If anyone wants to check out the mailing address I sent my application to in PA it's 210 Crest Street, Clairton, PA 15025. It's a bonafide address according to the Clairton Police Dept, although his name isn't on the address. Maybe it belongs to his girlfriend Tammy. Let me know what you find out.

We attended the performance tonight, and it was one of the most moving and enjoyable evenings we ever had. Debbie is a great performer, and had her audience in the palm of her hand.
This band sounds like something i could really get into, they sound like my kind of music. I look forward to hearing them!
I was at the show, and aside from having my eardrums blown, it was an awesome time... My fiance and I have been fans since we saw the spree on Conan O'Brien 4 or 5 years ago, and the music just keeps getting better. Not to mention that the band members are really cool, down-to-earth kind of people... I'd love to see them back in town on their next tour.
Come on out to this show, folks. All the bands are top notch. The Dirty Faces are simply the rockin'est, most wildly unpredictable band in the city and Flaming Fire is sure to be a spectacle to behold.
Amoeba Knievel plans to give them a run for their money, though. It may be our last show in a long, long time. Possibly ever. We're gonna go out on top.
So come on out to see us!
Can you guys include links to the websites of the artists you feature? It would be great to check out their music.
Carnegie Library of Homestead, located in Munhall, PA, is much more than a library. The facility contains a newly renovated fitness center, gymnasium, and a swimming pool. In addition, there is a beautiful 1,022 seat music hall, that when built in 1897, was acoustically perfect. Queens will be our 5th show since August, with many more to come.

Maybe we should go back to the drawing board for this story. It doesn't seem quite finished. Remember, information is good. To start: The headline's a little misleading. Why is the library mentioned last? Why are Josh Homme and crew playing in a library? Who set up the show? What other venues/promoters jockeyed for rights? Why did QOTSA end up choosing a library? Was the decision purely monetary, or were other factors involved? Who can talk about it? How about an interview with someone in the band? Someone affiliated with the band? Someone at the library? A fan? In what part of the library are they performing? What kinds of challenges will the venue present? What other weird locations have QOTSA played (other than Rancho De La Luna for The Desert Sessions, which is alluded to but not explained)? Since Era Vulgaris was released in June, why is it necessary to review it now, along with a dismissive, lamely pun-filled (do we really want to use heavy mettle?) synopsis of QOTSA's career?
Give it some thought. Try again next week.
Way to go Chad! Can't wait to get the new CD!
props to Patti Smith for not allowing age to determine if she's gonna create or not and believing her best work is yet to come. how truly sad for those who believe otherwise & have fallen prey to America's spoon-fed fallacies about growing older.
did I say flemming? I meant Snyder, oops!
I am gonna go to the show ( I think Erin Flemming's hot) these guys are probably a bunch of fags, but ya never know, ya know?
While The Lobster Quadrille appreciates the mention, there are a couple of things that should probably be cleared up here:
First, the article seems to indicate that Solomon Blaylock is still one of Jehovah's Witnesses. This is not the case. He left the church some years ago.
Second, this is not a religious act per se...anyone who shows up expecting such will be disappointed. The Lobster Quadrille performs in the manner of a satanic tent revival, and those who take issue with blasphemy and profanity will want to stay far away.
Thank you kindly.
