  1. the organization is terrible….

    if i want to watch man man i have to skip widespread….

    if i want to watch maps and atlases i have to skip widespread

    if i want to watch jason isbell i have to skip the black keys….


  2. Yeah, but Widespread is playing two nights, right? So if you catch both Man Man and Maps & Atlases, you’ll still see half of Widespread on Saturday, and half of Widespread on Sundays. Two halves equal a whole.

    Now that’s knowledge!

  3. So excited for Forecastle! This set looks awesome!

  4. First day of Forecastle had a difficult start: lousy signage, directions, ticketing. You have to buy a ticket to buy Food & drink? – are you kidding me? And once you’re in, it’s alcohol, alcohol, alcohol. I’ve never seen a crowd that tries to lay claim to environmental and health awareness smoke so much tobacco. Don’t these people read! Oh yeah, the music and art is GREAT!
