9th annual "All Good Music Festival", Masontown, W.VA
« on: July 24, 2005, 01:41:00 PM »
Last weekend i went down to W.VA, to Masontown, in fact, to a place called Marvins' Mountaintop for the 9th annual "All Good Music Festival".  The ticket for 3 days of music and camping cost me $120.oo. Bands appearing at the venue included:Les Claypool, The Flaming Lips, Particle, Ozomatli, Yonder Mountain String Band, Keller Williams, Michael Franti and Spearhead, The String Cheese Incident and Dark Star Orchestra among others.  My favorite band performance was by Yonder Mountain. String Cheese was good but seemed to lack energy.
i have been serving a d.u.i. lisence suspension for the last year or so and when i first ordered my ticket i thought my lisence would be re-instated by the time of the festival,so i thought i would be able to drive legally, but as it turned out i was wrong and the commonwealth of PA continues to try to exploit me. The commonwealth  requires that i rent and install an ignition interlock system on any vehicle i drive, whether registered in my name or not in order to have my lisence re-instated. Well i don't feel like giving them any more money, which i don't even have anyway. Anyway to cut to the chase here i almost didn't go to the festival because i was paranoid of going through checkpoints and such with no lisence.  The day that the festival opened i was still wrestling with whether to go or not. Sometime around 2:30pm i decided i just couldn't eat the $120.oo ticket and that if i just played everything cool i would be alright.  All my stickers and stuff are all current and legal. So i just threw my drum and all my campin' gear in the back of my truck and did the speed limit all the way to Marvins' Mountaintop.  i got to Masontown after about a 2 and a half hour drive from where i live in New Castle, PA. It was about 5:30 when i arrived in Masontown. There was a huge traffic jam though, waiting to get into the venue.  During the 5 hour traffic jam i made friends with my neighbors in line and drank beer and ate macadamia nut-ganja cookies, which were tastey and potent. i finally was able to set up my tent in the darkness about 10:30pm.
Having secured my campsite and met my neighbors for the weekend the next order of business was scoring the proper chemicals.  i took a walk down to shakedown st. and found what i was looking for without any effort.  i paid $20.oo for a roll and $10.oo for L.S.D.(which is more than twice what i used to pay for L.S.D., but it's been a while since i bought acid). i saved the drugs for the next day when i knew that Yonder Mountain and String Cheese would be playin'. In the meantime i just smoked up the ganja(which was also quite easy to come by) and drank beer.
The next day around 4pm or so as Yonder Mountain took the stage i ate the ecstacy, then about an hour later, after i found my acid layin' on the ground(in plastic),which i spent about 45 minutes looking for, i ate the L.S.D.(candyflippin').  It was cool but i thought both drugs could have been stronger. i am kinda at a loss to describe the exact effects of the chemicals on me. Next time i'm not even goin' to mess with the ecstacy, i'm just gonna get hold of the pure molly and flip that with the acid.  In fact i've got some right now that i'm saving for another sort of a festival this weekend. The Grove Party, Rock Falls(Slippery Rock)PA.  All together it was a real good time. i met lots o' cool people,ate all kind o' good food, listened to great music, and was surrounded the entire time by beautiful hippie girls. All is not lost, there is hope. Peace ::rainbow::

If you would have justice in this world, then begin to see that a human being is not a means to some end.  People are not commodities.  When human beings are just to one another government becomes obsolete and real freedom is born; SPIRITUAL ANARCHY.

Keller and Flaming Lips are pretty fucking cool.  Keller blows me away that it's just him onstage makin' all those sounds.   I enjoy Yonder Mountain OK, too.  Sounds like a fun time.

You should post this on the "Super Duper Badass Concert Thread", it's been a while since that one's been on the front page:

Yeah it was a blast, Keller jammed it out, and actually i didn't see one cop the whole weekend.
Maybe i would post it on that "super-duper bad ass concert" thread if i understood how to cut and paste and all that kind of technical stuff.
Who are you if you don't mind me askin'? you can p.m. me if you want. i am interested in knowin' who shares my taste in music,etc,[ This Message was edited by: starry-eyed pirate on 2005-07-24 11:05 ]
