Ok, Ok, I know the SuperTwang festival brought about some super ugly events within the event’s management company. This unfortunate internal disaster did however yield a “late AGAIN excuse” for my updates here, (many apologies to all, by the way). It also allowed time for the situation to blow over a bit so I could tell y’all the good stuff.
I had a blast! My husband Jonas provided us with the review of the Artimus Pyle Band (APB). I attended the entire interview in their tour bus; completely star-struck and, while bound to uphold certain confidential bits, I do know that I loved every single minute of it. I took pictures and offered my own commentary, albeit after the recorder was shut off.
APB did bring the sunshine and a chance for me to wipe the mud off my newly pedicured toes. Yes, I wore flip- flops to a country music festival on a giant farm by the lake. I trampled back and forth to the port-a-potties several times. Splish, splash; you get the idea. I really cannot wait for someone to invent one with a flusher option similar to those on an airplane. Really, it is 2011…
Up until this day, I had never attended a concert armed with an All-Access pass but take it from me y’all, it’s the only way to travel. My laminate granted me the freedom to move about backstage and on the festival grounds and to talk with many of the day’s performers. Despite the rain on that Friday, May 13, many people were dancing and having a great time watching the bands perform. There was a huge sense of excitement, fellowship, and rockin’ in the air. I ate an awesome chicken kabob from one vendor followed by a donut and an iced-coffee from another. The festival had great food and merchandise vendors selling leather goods, t-shirts, and hats. I almost couldn’t resist the red leather cowboy boots but, realizing that such footwear is not “pedicure friendly”, I was very satisfied with a t-shirt signed by the members of the APB.
I mingled among the artists and their crew, happily getting a feel for the entire festival and its atmosphere. I spent a lot of time with other festival goers, dancing and just having a great time. The setting in the mountains by the lake was like none other; especially as the fog rose up through the mountains after the rain.
Many thanks to everyone involved in this event. They worked many long hours and put in a lot of hard work to show the vast community around Norris Lake a great time. I wish the best outcome for all involved in the event!
