Posted: May 1, 2010 12:21 pm
hampton, tutti told me it was closest to the show
Posted: May 1, 2010 12:32 pm
thanks bruce, that one's full now, too. Jeez.
Posted: May 1, 2010 3:05 pm
yeah, i hadn't actually booked, figured i had plenty of time, called now. any other ideas?
Posted: May 1, 2010 7:24 pm
well, I know stephanie that posts here just got one by the airport, which isn't really all that close. anything close seems to be booked because this car show is at the fairgrounds which is basically in the same neighborhood, but I think you probably know where that is. I'd say you would have luck on the north side of town with prices and availability, maybe the ramada on morse rd. or on e. broad st, which is close to my house and not too too far, but I live pretty close to the airport.
Posted: May 4, 2010 12:28 pm
yeah, i decided to map quest the distance after booking the hotel. I should have known it was too good to be true when it was cheaper AND available. Whatever though! Means we're going!

don's in!

There seems to be so many people going that renting a passenger bus might not be such a bad idea. work was a no go on borrowing one of ours( i wish i had a picture of the look they gave me when i asked. priceless) but if we rent a 15 person passenger bus, it wouldn't cost much at all. i'm checking on it.

just sayin"
Posted: May 14, 2010 10:11 pm
would that be considered limo? drinking is legal?
Posted: May 14, 2010 10:30 pm | Edited by: jerryd
depends. up to 14, no special license. 15 and more, you have to have a cdl license(limo, passenger bus), which i'm getting the first week of june for work, so driving it's not a problem.

i'm pretty sure you can drink in anything you drive, so it should be okay.
Posted: May 23, 2010 11:08 pm
checking on the passenger prices tomorrow now that school shit has calmed down, and will post them tomorrow.

I just saw that tickets for the Oblivians/Cheater Slicks/Bassholes/Dexter Romwell after party are on sale 6/10 at bourbon street. Don't know yet what that means for out of towners, but will let you know if I hear anything.

Hey Nick, can peeps buy online? If not, can I send you some dough to get Lisa & I tickets?

Hey Nick, can peeps buy online? If not, can I send you some dough to get Lisa & I tickets?

The only other time I've seen them sell tickets was for Mudhoney and there wasn't any type of online option- I was actually surprised they printed up real tickets. But let me find out more and I'll keep you a breast and then we can see if we need to figure out cuntingencies.
Posted: Jun 2, 2010 12:47 pm
thanks dude!
Posted: Jun 8, 2010 10:54 am
Nick and I are going now (thanks, Stoiph!) THIS IS GOING TO RULE!!!
Posted: Jun 8, 2010 11:47 am
It looks like it's 4 ticket limit per person for the Oblivians show and Lula and I are spoken for (that includes you two, Roe-Dawg). Still haven't heard a price...

But I can't imagine this selling out. It's a big venue and Columbus.
Posted: Jun 8, 2010 11:50 am
nick - you know what time tix are going on sale thurs?
Posted: Jun 8, 2010 12:03 pm

How should we get you two monies? I can paypal or send ya a check - whatevs... lemme know! email me at: cococoma@gmail.com & let's hash it out!

Posted: Jun 8, 2010 1:12 pm
The only other time I've seen them sell tickets was for Mudhoney

...and mudhoney was next door in the 100 capacity side of the venue. And it didn't sell out. And Cheater Slicks played that. Which was way more awesome than mudhoney, of course.

Nope. I'll post on here if I hear anything, though.

Do you need advanced tickets for the shows? Me and D are kicking around coming up... Bruce?
Posted: Jun 11, 2010 7:52 am
i don't think so james, the one's outside and the other seems to be in a room big enough that it won't sell out
Posted: Jun 11, 2010 8:16 am
i don't think the surly girl parking lot show (gibson bros, etc) has advance tickets. it's just bands playing under a tarp in a smaller parking lot. they don't know what to expect this year as far as crowds go but have mentioned a one in/one out policy if it gets too crowded.

i suspect we'll all be safe with the oblivians, etc show but who knows? the summit said they'd start selling hard copy tix yesterday but, to no one's surprise, they weren't.

Columbus Music Co-Op celebrates 5th Anniversary with Parking Lot Blowout fundraiser concert

Three reunited Columbus bands among acts helping raise health care funds for working musicians

Columbus, Ohio Local non-profit the Columbus Music Co-Op (CMC) has announced full lineup and set times (see below) for its 5th Annual "Here Comes Your Weekend" Parking Lot Blowout, to be held Saturday, July 10 (2-11pm) in the parking lot just north of the Surly Girl Saloon (1126 N. High St.). All funds raised from the event go toward the CMC's Columbus Musicians Assistance Program (CMAP), which administers and distributes grants of up to $1,000 to working musicians with a demonstrated health care need.

To mark its fifth anniversary, CMC organizers have organized a once-in-a-lifetime event pulling from the best of current and past Columbus rock 'n' roll (set times noted):

Old Hundred (3:00 pm) (http://old-hundred.com/)
Columbus indie-folk upstarts create a rustic stomp

The Randys (3:45 pm) (http://www.therandys.com/)
Venerable Columbus quintet can swing from jazz to rock to country and back again.

Fat Girls By the Snack Table (4:30 pm) (http://www.myspace.com/fatgirlsbythesnacktable)
Reunited neo-electroclash duo sing awkward anthems to ex-boyfriends and more

Sweatheart (5:15 pm) (http://www.myspace.com/sweatheartsweat)
ex-Columbusite Thom Lessner's Philly phreakout band bring the day-glo rock jamz

Eye (6:00 pm) (http://www.myspace.com/eye_music)
Pretty Weapons and Teeth of the Hydra members team for new metal heavy project

New Bomb Turks (6:45 pm)(http://www.myspace.com/theenewbombturks)
Columbus (and NYC) punks reunite for another loud, fast, and snotty set

Gibson Brothers (7:45 pm) (http://www.trouserpress.com/entry.php?a=gibson_bros)
One night only! Seminal twisted roots/blues quartet reunites 20 later

Scrawl (8:45 pm) (http://www.simplemachines.net/scrawl.html)
Columbus trio reunite after many years away for an ultra-rare one-off

"We're humbled and beyond excited about this year's line-up," says CMC Executive Director, Erin Moore. "To have the New Bomb Turks and Scrawl reunite was amazing enough. To have the Gibson Brothers, who haven't played a show in 20 years and who are this mythical legend among Columbus bands to actually play our fundraiser... I think it says a lot about the work that the CMC is doing to help musicians."

Gates open at 2pm, with music beginning at 3pm. Admission is free until 5pm, and $5 thereafter. This is an all-ages, family friendly event. The event will conclude by 10:30pm.

For the latest information about the Parking Lot Blowout, and for more about the CMC and CMAP, please visit columbusmusiccoop.org.


Through workshops, music, art events, the Columbus Music Co-op (501c3 pending) raises funds for its Columbus Musicians Assistance Program (CMAP), which disburses mini-grants to working Central Ohio musicians who are lacking health insurance coverage and are experiencing health-related financial hardships. (Criteria and application information for CMAP is available at the CMC website at columbusmusiccoop.org.)

vans to go on summer: 12-15 passenger van for four days is $470 plus the first 800 miles free. that seems to be a pretty good deal.

so after free mileage runs out and with at least 10 people with taxes added in, you would be looking at about $100 each.
Posted: Jun 25, 2010 1:14 pm
that looks fine to me
Posted: Jun 26, 2010 6:06 pm
forgot about don!

don wants to ride as well.

leila said hemant and mary were a no, so at the least we have 10 people. i'll call monday and see if i can reserve it.
Posted: Jun 27, 2010 7:10 pm
Anybody know a good place to stay that is not super expensive and close to the summit, or better yet, anyone got a backyard that some of us from A Burning Bus (Don Howlands band)can pitch a tent in, or a porch to sleep on? We are polite guest.

hey all - this is Jess from the Columbus Music Co-op, the non-profit that is putting on this event!! wanted to share some extra info on the show and let you know i'll be checking back if you have any specific questions, just let me know!

Also, some exciting news, we are 95% sure we are going to have live web-streaming of the Parking Lot Blowout available for those who can't make it! More details will be posted here as soon as we get things all confirmed - have to make sure all the bands are cool with it and work out some technical details yet...

EVENT UPDATE (6/29/10):

Friends, rockers: This year's CMC Parking Lot Blowout is less than two weeks away (July 10), and we are really glad so many people have said they are planning on joining us (from near and far) for the party. For those of you not familiar with this event or the CMC, this is our 5th year of throwing this thing and it is our primary fundraiser for the year. All money raised goes to support local working musicians through our programming, which you can find out more about here.

The local support and fundraising aspect has always led to a real communal spirit, but clearly the addition of so many great bands has expanded our scope to generate interest from those a bit farther away this year. We are excited about that, but want people to understand what to expect, have a great time, and not be left out. So with that, a few things to remember:


Posted: Jul 1, 2010 8:08 pm
here's the deal on oblivians, etc tix.

they've sold 50 of 150 as of about 2 hours ago. they'll have 100 more at the door that night.

i can get a maximum of 4 at a time, 8 if i drag a friend along. they're 10 bucks each.

BUT i need first & last names so they can match the ticket # to your ID at the door. (i think this is to prevent copying the low-tech tix).

so if you think you might freak out about not having tickets & you're coming from out of town, i'll cover you for the time being. pay it forward, brah.
Posted: Jul 1, 2010 11:10 pm
i have a new idea for a rental.

much, much cheaper.

bruce, are jack and eric coming back with us?

Pistol Pez,

Coming from far out of town and if you could help out I'd appreciate it greatly and buy you a beer.

E-mail me at mangliu@aol.com so we can work this out.

Posted: Jul 4, 2010 4:33 pm
Trying real hard to find tickets Pistol Pez, I am coming in for what could be one of the greatest days in music for the great state of Ohio. I would deeply appreciate your help in getting tix,

Posted: Jul 4, 2010 4:41 pm
check your email, guys.

i'll swing by tomorrow night & get an idea of how many advance tix are left, too.
Posted: Jul 5, 2010 4:58 pm
5 days!
Posted: Jul 5, 2010 9:15 pm
there's plenty of advance tix still left. i'd say almost 100.
Posted: Jul 6, 2010 11:05 pm

it's not moving, it's been in the low-to-mid 90s for the past 2-3 days, today & tomorrow.

mid-80s on saturday, though. but the day show is mostly under a large tent/canopy thing. i plan on (happily) sweating at the oblivians, etc show, though.

Thanks for supporting the Columbus Music Co-op everyone!

I'm glad I spent Sunday and Monday of this week sealing blacktop, I knew something good had to come of it, and it sure as hell wasn't when I was standing over hot bubbling tar. Bring on the heat.

I had plans to bring a nice 35mm camera and 11x17 box of free records, but my new goal is too get songs loaded on a borrowed GPS and 2 clean shirts to wear. Columbus or bust.

and someone to bring new beers once ours are 3/4 gone.

Uh oh, I think I know where this is heading. Did I mention I have a swollen joint capsule in my neck? I'm with the gimps! Pills and booze all around!
Posted: Jul 9, 2010 10:48 am
oh, and for people coming from out of town, you should know that eric from new bomb turks will be at the wexner center (on osu campus) to talk about his new book on fri at 9pm

more info

after will be a related party/show at cafe bourbon street (literally next door to the summit, where tomorrow's night show will be). 3 bands will be playing & eric will dj, too.

me & some peeps will be skipping that, though, and heading to see the spikedrivers at skully's. skully's is across the street from surly girl, where tomorrow's day show will be.

the spikedrivers are a rootsy, jammy kind of band with fiddle player & some blazing gee-tar. good, high-energy band if you're into that kinda thing. (the biggest draw for me -- walking distance from home).

Memphis caravan assembled early Friday morning, Jerry's minivan & Darcy's rentacar. Much better plan than bowling team. Massive traffic problems going through KY... added 4 1/2 hours to our drive up. Caught end of New Bomb Turks playing an unnanounced set at Cafe Bourbon. Witnessed my first parking lot at capacity & people waiting to get into a parking lot. New Bomb Turks were once again solid & folks going crazy. Hung with Alienator! Found out there's a place in KY called Berea. Gibson Bros were fantastic, with parents & kids able to see 'em. Great. Cheater Slicks performed a PUNK 1st set. Untouchable. Walked in on some punk rock nightclub humpin'. Met Lou Poster (not the humper or humpee). Burning Bush killed it... even better than Gonerfest set. Oblivians struggled but soundguy fixed mic shocking for me at least. Couldn't hold onto my pick due to extreme arthritis & sweat. Frustrating. Managed to break D string. Nowhere near the intensity of the NY/NJ shows but sweatier & folks dug it. Missed Dexter's set as I was getting ready to rock. Missed Cheater slicks 2nd as I was still recouperating from Oblivs set. Chez Mullet was the perfect crash pad. Great to see so many people from all over the place. Drive home was easy & quick. Even got to see some of the world cup via mobitv on the iphone. Nice to be home.

I just remembered I tried to force Dave Martin to crowd surf during the Oblivians' set. Whoops! Sorry Dave!

boy you hit that right Pez, it took me about 36 hours. Eric, you guys struggled? Wow, that was strugging. For me at least it was rock n roll heaven. Thanks . Cheater Slicks played a 2nd set...aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh

I didn't see any Alienator! That was about as much fun as could be crammed into a weekend though. Gibson Bros. shined and hopefully we'll all get more chances to see them again. I was only in Columbus for less than an hour and managed to get a concusion but I think I enjoyed it!
Cincinnati was the bottleneck for me going up nonstop rain, luckily when I made a pit stop, Kings Island Taco Bell had an amazing deal, bag of doritos, a chicken burritto and drink for 2 dollars. I knew it was going to be a good weekend then!

I was a trooper untill halfway through The Oblivians set, then I started having engine trouble and had to glide it the rest of the way in. But I never puked! In spite of mixing burbon, pabst, and realy good Ohio beer in the opposite order of that. Tom Potter rolled me an excellent cigarette, and I think everyone was glad to see the he and his darling wife made it down for the show. Left my check card at the bar and they didn't even buy any internet drugs with yet, that I know of. Then I made it back in town 6 hours before I was due back for work. Summer time in Columbus is a beautiful thing. Maybe next time the Bassholes reunion will be in effect! Bim was looking spry and ready for action. Next day I got to sport my old Crypt/NBT shirt, and got that good Columbus stink on it, my lucky shirt.

Pistol Pez is da' man.

I'm just now starting to feel normal. Great weekend, we had a lot of fun with the algoma boys. best house guests ever. They brought us some algoma wine, I'm saving it for a special occasion. I, too, thought I was gonna die after being in the front of that oblivians crowd for the first half of their set. So sweaty. Made it out with no apparent damage. Gibson Bros were life-affirming. Cheater Slicks were badass, it really sucks that people missed it. We got to hang with tons of folks we rarely get to see, that was the best.... I am now returning to my previously scheduled life of reclusivity.

oh yeah, standing in a parking lot in the middle of c-bus for 5 hours is really, really low on my list of things I am willing to do in the name of "fun". Totally worth it!

that wasn't his wife, but a friend from chicago

that was a hell of a sweat fest. even more so than the oblivians shows in memphis last year. i was soaked from head to toe.

my apologies to the band for yelling "pill popper!" after every song until it was played (thanks!)

alienator learned the hard way ohioans take their partying seriously.

what i think i was able to remember re: set list (in no particular order & don't take my word it) -- motorcycle leather boy, i'm not a sicko, sunday you need love, never change, strong come on, hey mama look at sis, memphis creep, she's a hole, the leather, and then i fucked her, drill, never change, pill popper, static party, live the life, vietnam war blues

these might have been played but my memory's fuzzy -- never enough, shut my mouth, no reason to live

gibson bros were rusty at first but *really* started to click about midway through their set. i would have preferred less of a crowd so i could get closer. boo hoo. i hope they play more.

caught cheater slicks right before they launched into murder. sucks i missed most of their set but i'll catch them many more times.

hey - let's do this all again!

Today is the first day I feel fully recovered. Been late to work everyday, that's what Ohio will do to ya!

Pistol Pez have you seen my shades? Those were my favorite pair of cheap glasses, got them for free when I bought my prescription pair.

Absolutely amazing. Here it is almost a week later and I'm reliving it here at work jamming Big Pine Boogie on my headphones and I just caught myself bobbing around in my chair like I was still at the show.

Why isn't anybody talkin about Dex? It was like watching him on a riverboat in the swamp....the mosquitos were out and everything and the bullfrogs a croakin.....little disapointed his sister wasn't drummiin.

Dexter was amazing. Too bad it was cut short, damn ungrounded electricity.
Posted: Jul 16, 2010 6:40 am

I went outside for a couple minutes and came back and it was over... The other 3 bands I did see at that show were awesome though.
