Sounds great, but logistically weird. Twelve artists and the show starts at 7PM? "Performances on 3 separate stages" at Webster Hall?

Logistically, it makes sense - I've always wanted to have a festival there. Remember in the "old" days, before they just kicked you out after a show, you could go mingle with the "others" in different rooms - there was the bangin hip hop room and the funny disco room, that rock kids danced both ironically and passionately in...
It was neat to explore the dungeon. I've always liked webster hall, I think it's beautiful. I definitely agree with everyone and Todd P, in that security's attitude and prices, etc. detract from the experience in a major way, but I do like the physical venue a lot.

Webster Hall was fun in the '90s: you had dance on the main floor, a rock band playing in the side bar, the reggae room on the bottom floor. Sometimes you had rock bands playing in the entry floor and in the side bar.

Now I only go there for an occasional show. I boycotted WH for years, but the new layout made things much better.
