Q: When Is Gonerfest V?

That is still a secret. Bands from 3 continents have confirmed, with more being added by the day.

Q: Are Tickets Available? Is it sold out?

A: Tickets are not yet available. We will let you know when they are - and post ticket prices here and on the Gonerfest V page.

A: Sambeaux says: Moustache Rides, right here!

A: If Jerry D hadn't snoozed on that Libertyland skeeball, we'd be neck deep in plushie prizes. Ah well.

Q: Will 11,123 air miles get me to Gonerfest V or just partially across the Atlantic?

Q: I've never used air miles before; how do I use them?

Q: Will I be stolen if I go to Memphis this year?
Posted: Apr 24, 2008 8:58 am
 
A: 11, 123 air miles probably will get you a bus ride to Bexhill-on-Sea.

A: Go to your airline's website and they'll tell you how useless they are.

A: You will not be stolen if you come to Memphis.

Q: Will 11,123 air miles get me to Gonerfest V or just partially across the Atlantic?

You'll probably get kicked out over Greenland. 50,000 airmiles on Continental gets you a free flight to the States, so by Gonerfest IX you'll definitely have enough for that freebie.

You ain't gotta pretend shit. I owe you a beer. Or three.

if I had to miss either thursday or sunday which day should I miss?
You shouldn't miss either, but Sunday is lower key usually. And most people need it if they've been there since Thursday. Book a Sunday Memphis flight for 8:00 pm. You'll get back on your turf by 9:00 pm.

Q: The info here says "Sept 25 - 28, 30+ bands in 3 days." Now, I could be mistaken, but isn't Sept 25 - 28 actually 4 days?

I just skimmed the on-line version of the Gonerfest Program. Looks great. I noticed the back page Matador ad for the Gonerfest-only, colored vinyl Jay Reatard LP. How and when will this be for sale?
