    RedStorm said: people were just sitting around drinking and/or smoking. Not really my thing.

    It’s a park, with music and beer, neither of which are customarily permitted in the park. So yeah, there’s some sitting. BUT THERE ARE TWIRLERS TOO DAMMIT.



    The 2013 Community Festival Program Guide is now online. Go to http://www.comfest.com/program-guide.php
    for a link to the full 64-page book, along with a link for the 40 year history published last year.

    Be sure to check out this year’s Honorees, the full schedule of workshops, and the list on the back page of the ways ComFest gives back to the community that supports it.

    Then — please — go back to the front page
    for the link to the volunteer application, and sign up to help staff this volunteer-run festival. Remember: ComFest beer tastes better when it’s paid for with a white token — and you can only get that by volunteering!

    Happy ComFest, all y’all!



    I’ll be there all weekend, to see bands and just to people watch. and drink beer.


    Comfest 2013 will be my 20th in a row, I’m only going this year to volunteer early Saturday its changed to much for my liking but hey who gives a fk rite?



    Lotta great bands this year, but here who’s at the top of my list:

    TOBIN-WILCOX– Friday nite (really fun songs)
    TEEN FICTION– Friday nite (dance til you drop)
    DEWDROPPERS[/url] – Saturday nite (rockin’ swing)


    Not a bad lineup imo, nice to see ekoostik hookah on the bill, willie phoenix yawn…what no watershed??? Oh I see Colin’s playin with the bones, I just mite have to put a 420 smile on for 3 strange days.


    The Saturday afternoon Offramp lineup is particularly strong this year (yeah, I’m a little biased). The Heavy Handed get to jumpstart things at noon after the kid-friendly Shazzbots, followed by Brujas del Sol[/url] (fun pysch) and the Kyle Sowashes[/url] (venerable Columbus).

    Then head over to the Bozo stage for EYE at 5pm. Done and done.

    “Though many people bring dogs along, the crowds and loud weather make it uncomfortable for most pets.”

    Loud weather? Not sure if they intended to say hot weather or loud music. I wish the author would have added “irresponsible” to describe people who bring pets to the ComFest.

    Hey, he/she might have been a little high when it was written.. haha



    Also, Comfest hasn’t been in Goodale for 41 years.



    CleanUp and Recycling needs volunteers! Please consider pitching in to help keep Goodale Park clean….most volunteers needed for evening shifts and early morning hours. (free tokens/and a groovy t-shirt for your efforts)….Grazie, obrigado, muchas gracias, thank you!)



    Local Music Week: Psychic Wheels
    Published on June 26, 2013 10:15 am

    Psychic Wheels gets their own post because they consistently blow my mind and eardrums each and every time I make the worthwhile trek to see them play. After witnessing their performance at Double Happiness last weekend, they’ve solidified the top spot on my short list of favorite bands in Columbus. There’s fuzz, distortion, Spencer Morgan’s monotone singing voice which is sometimes interrupted by yipps and yelps, and Molly screaming at the end of “No No”, I just can’t help myself. It surpasses charming and ends up in a pile of distortion cords and a tangible blob of fucking awesome. I emailed Spencer some questions about this band that is far too underrated for its own good.

    Psychic Wheels perform on the Offramp stage on Friday at 7PM. Do not miss it.

    Local Music Week: Comrade Question & Cadaver Dogs
    Published on June 25, 2013 1:30 pm
    By: Briana Henry

    This week marks local music week here on Columbus Underground as well as the countdown to my favorite festival in Columbus, Comfest. Given the daunting task to choose the five top bands not to miss at Comfest, I realized I had to make it ten. This year’s lineup tops last year’s so much so that choosing only ten bands to profile was a bit intimidating. Every day this week, we will feature two local bands who will play this weekend’s festival of good food, good music, and women who should really reconsider their decision to go topless.
