Camping + Live Music + Fire = Fire Fest!

Here's the spiel:

In no hyperbolic way, Black Pistol Fire is the best goddamn live band I've ever seen. Ever. I'm spreading the gospel (and bumping my very minimal hipster cred) by sharing the wonder of this band. I'd pay $25 just to see them.

But wait! There's more! Your $25 will also get you:

19 additional awesome local musicians. Camping (nearby in Southeast Austin- minimal driving!), fireworks, local food trailers, fire dancers, sprinkler dance party, massive water balloon fight, and a ton of fun.

Additional info, and a method to purchase tickets can be found here:

    Great time for sure. My apologies to the folks I kind of disappeared on - after a trip to the car became an extended round of hard liquor & grabbing some food (Kebalicious was pretty awesome btw), I passed out in the car while hiding from the rain :X. It was definitely a pleasure meeting everyone though. Looking forward to future meetups.

    Hi,
    Just moved from sf to Austin. I'm a maybe as of now, but I have a giant tent and I'm happy to bring beer!

  • Sid

    Hey Dan/ Mickie if any one of you could give me a ride please call me at[masked]

    June 29, 2012

  • Dan

    @Victoria - Awesome, I'll totally take it :D

    June 29, 2012

  • Victoria A.

    @Dan Assuming you haven't bought one yet. I have an extra ticket you could use. This goes for anyone else if he doesnt respond.

    June 29, 2012

  • Dan

    @Mickie - Just tried code 'reddit' seems like it ran out: "Sorry, your requested ticket quantity exceeds the number provided by your promotional code."

    For those who still haven't bought tickets: the code 'reddit' makes entry $6!

    @Megan - Sounds good. I was actually thinking about crashing in my car as well in the worst case scenario.
    @Sid - I'm down South, if no one up North volunteers to give you a ride I'll come pick you up. As for the tent, I think I'd probably just crash in the car - returning a used tent screws the manufacturer, who has to take it back from Walmart.

    June 29, 2012

  • Sid

    Dan, we can also get tents from Wallmart and return the next day ! They take it back I have seen some people doing that !

    June 29, 2012

  • Sid

    Hey Mickie I live in Round Rock ! Also I need a tent to :( !!! Guys I wil be more organized from the next time !!!

    I found out the event starts at 3. I won't make it until 5, but feel free to start earlier. You're free to bring food and water (highly recommend the water), but they ask that you support the food/beer trailers there too. My number:[masked]-0260. Text if you get lost or need to find the group. If anyone has a large flag we could fly to find each other, it'd be appreciated.

    Where are you located in town Sid? If I am able to figure out my sleeping situation I'd be more than willing to give you a ride given that I wouldn't be leaving until the following morning.

    @Sid, what area of town do you live in?

    June 29, 2012

  • Sid

    I would love to join, but I am new to Austin and do not have a car yet. Can anyone giveme a ride, I'll pay for the gas !

    June 29, 2012

  • Dan

    I'm interested in joining in but I just moved into town about a month ago & didn't bring my camping gear. Anyone got a big tent & willing to house 1 more for the night? Chances are I'd probably be able to find a spot to crash at an event like this, but it never hurts to ask ahead of time since I do plan on drinking if I attend.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
