The entire gym is without power. 1500 people are standing around with nothing to entertain them but free beach balls and drugs. Three electricians are scratching their heads in the 120 degree room where something electrical stopped working, and The Roots’ drummer ?uest Love has missed his flight. There is no power, and potentially no band. People keep asking me when the power will be back on…as if I know.
This past Saturday was Springfest, the biggest show put on by SA Concerts (or UVM Concerts bureau as its now called). Jenna Gabriel and I are Co-Presidents of the club and had been planning the show for roughly six months. We had put together what we believed to be an awesome line up, securing both The Roots and Thievery Corporation, along with supporting bands. We were well ahead of schedule in most aspects of planning and in many senses we were on top of things. This did not however, prevent some epicly bad luck.
