The Last 7:00pm Meeting in January 2010


If you’ve been following the festival for awhile, you should know the War Cry of 14/48: Artist Liaison: 8 o’clock show? All: OPENING NIGHT ENERGY!!! Artist Liaison: 10:30 show? All:  CLOSING NIGHT ENERGY!!!! Artist Liaison:  If you think you’re talking too loud? All:  SPEAK UP Artist Liaison: and if you start feeling tired? All:  RAISE THE FUCKING STAKES!!!!!
