    Great line up-check
    Great friends-check
    Great weather-hopefully
    The time and money to partake in as much as possible.....always an issue.

    Every year on artist release day, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning. The magic of Jazzfest just has never worn off and I hope it never does. Is it perfect? Fuck no. But when you look at the daily line up, remember how the food tastes, the exhibits, the vibe, the Injuns, Liuzzas, good friends to share it all with, for a $70 gate price. Itís a damn near perfect day for me.
    Hi hunni! It's been a minute eh? Can't wait to see all our Thead peeps again, you included
    ps yeah you right...I think it's fabulous too and am so grateful to be getting back to the fest. It's been 2 years for me and that's WAY too long!

    I don't know you but I'm happy for you. I've missed a lot over the last two years (a lot as compared to my usual all 7 days) and this year may be the same, due to a massive trial that begins two weeks after the fest. If it settles though, I'm looking forward to kamasi washington a LOT, never seen him live, love the Heaven and Earth record. I hope John Fogerty still has it, LOVE him, loved his last trip to fest. Can still hear those opening licks to born on the bayou. I didn't think much of the bob seger rumors, but when they started i searched up one of his recent setlists, and like the one that's on the Seger thread, it was a revelation --- forget how many really great songs that guy has done over the years. In 2001 I attended what i think was to date still the only full Marsalis family show (with harry jr as part of satchmo celebrations, was fantastic), would love to repeat it, but that will be one of the toughest seats of the festival. last year's jupiter and okwess hype has me all gunned up to see someone i've never seen, which is true for the tons of african acts this year, who i'm psyched about. I think it's a great lineup except too old, and the one nod to youth being katy perry is a bad idea, should have gone hip hop, that's where all the young folks seem to be anyway, even if i'm more disappointed for my son than for myself. and of course, nola music is what makes it and its stocked to the brim. so hoping that case settles. And if it does, I may get to take my teenage son to see the band that shall not be named in this thread on second thursday.............

    I'm really not that excited. It's okay, but it's a ton of retreads. I'll get to see the Stones, but I'm not overly pumped. Likely going Friday, Thursday, Friday, and maybe Sunday if I can score a cheap ticket.

    I'm completely excited about this year's fest. First weekend with the extra day should be smooth sailing and easy. Stones day will be a crowded day at Fest, but I've handled those plenty of times. Other than that, it's the same as it ever was or has been lately.

    Groovy has an open invite to drop by the casa (he has the address), but only if he shows with those devilish lamb chops. Swooooooooooooooon.
