Get there early. Not only is it first come, first served, but the ferry can cause you to get the island slightly later than you planned.

rumor: special guests playing with Neon Indian.

With delusion, anything is possible.

As a Native American and manufacturer of luminous-tube signs, I find the name Neon Indian offensive. I shall mail my letter of complaint to the Island of Governors post haste.

"Who invited Salman Rushdie?"

At first I thought to myself, that dude up front doesn't look anything like Salman Rushdie at all...and then I saw holmes in the background. Well done. Funny shit.

if you're not in the line for the ferry right now, you're probably not getting in.

seriously though, the wait times just to see these shows are insane

Posted by Anonymous | August 14, 2010 11:24 AM

You're wrong about wait times. If you go early there is a wait, but if you show up after 8pm I've been able to get into every show. May miss an opener or 2, but you get the main event.

does anyone know if they will have neon hummus at this show?

Posted by Anonymous | August 14, 2010 12:37 PM

Neon hummus has artificial colors added which are hard in the kidneys. Just go with original bro... Or maybe spicy if your feeling freeky.

I'm not in line yet, but I was hoping that guy's dad could give me a ride too. Maybe he has a minivan and could drive all of us?

I had a long beard last year, but knew it was outta control one fateful day at a dinner party when I reached over the table to grab my wine and my beard accidentally was dipped into the hummus bowl.

Theres free shows in the midwest also and complimentary salad, beer, brownies, soda, and hummus.

a girl at the show with a short skirt sat down near me. We talked about music and then I noticed she had sat in my hummus tupperware dish. I told her to go -- just go. I cried a place inside of me out, I never felt before. I licked the hummus thereafter with passion, as I got aroused thinking of her butt/vag.
