Next Year for the Gorge (now this year–2014)

13 Jul

It’s mid-July and we are getting excited up in here about two nights with SEATS at Labor Dave weekend + Brandi Carlile!!!  Aside from pre-listening and composing our setlist wishlists, we’re playing the setlist game on Ants Marching, and thinking of our outfits.  I have one outfit, but need to come up with a second one before the big show.  As for Saturday, I’m not certain what I’m going to do about my current swimwear situation–I have nothing SUITable (pun!)  But there’s no money and no merch, so I’ll have to get creative about that one. . .  But in the mean time, here’s a list I generated last year about things we need to remember this time.  And I’ll add to it as it gets closer.

DMB laser lights
