    Have you been to Festival International before? It’s a lot of fun!

    I am going to Fortress. Not really looking forward to spending money on a hotel room for the weekend but how can I resist that lineup?

    What kind of festival work are you doing (if you don't mind me asking)?

    yeah, last year was my first year! such a unique event

    a mix of things. I'll mostly be hanging and networking Old Settler's (their team supports my family's festival, which I'm sure I'll end up shamelessly promoting here), and I'll be doing a panel at Festival International. the majority of the time, I'm doing box office management or artist hospitality for festivals all over. pretty exhausting but fun work!

    Just moved to Dallas from Miami. Haven’t gotten to do much, as moving and work have taken over, but excited to see what the city has to offer.

    Get on the Majestic Theater mailing list for some unique live events. Also, try Cane Rossi pizza - so good!

    Thanks for the recommendation! Will most likely try that for lunch tomorrow.

    I feel so lost here. Haha. After living 20 years in Miami, this is definitely change for me. Any recommendations are totally welcome.

    Good Records on Greenville Ave., their Record Store Day party is one of the best. Live performances all day long and free beer. If you like BBQ, Pecan Lodge in Deep Ellum will put you in a meat coma!

    Familiarize your self with all the Half Price Books locations; closest one to you is on Northwest Highway and it has been a consistent honey pot lately. Good Records is ok but it's worth the trip to go north to Josey Records at 635 and Josey.

    The best record store, though definitely not the cheapest, is Forever Records off 360 in Grand Prairie. They have a small room with records that go for over $1000, like first edition Beatles and old MOFI. Josey is great. You can find some good stuff.

    Doc's Records in Fort Worth is a great spot too, good prices and selection. Doesn't have the selection of Forever Young but you won't have to get a second mortgage to buy their records.

    I always forget about Forever Young... Mostly because I'm too poor to shop there.

    I'll be there, such a solid lineup. I've got a press pass request in with them, fingers crossed it comes through. It was a fun show to shoot last year.

    @bfly It's awesome you plan a festival, I've always wanted to curate lineups. You've had some awesome artists over the years, Mobley on last year's is one of my favorite musicians to see live.

    I love him, too! we don't do any overlap so people have the chance to see everything if they want, and we hope it encourages some sonic exploration. let me know if you feel like camping out near Austin come November :)

    I went to Forever Young for the first time this weekend. I was overloaded by their selections, but quickly had to leave because it was too rich for my blood.

    I second Josey though. Definitely go check it out.
