    Surprise Shows

    Think Rolling Blackouts did the Sunday night last year. Got to be honest, i gave up pretty early last Sunday. Fuck that rain.

    It was leaked one year, maybe 2013, 2014, someone had a spreadsheet of it all. Made the weekend much easier

    Won’t be VW, they’re too big, need too much setting up. yeah, Josh T Pearson is a good shout. Maybe Richard Dawson, hookworms, boy azooga, possibly Shame? Doubt it will be anybody bigger than that.

    Park runners .....

    One of our party has, for the last few years, disapppeared off into Blanford to do the Park Run on the Saturday morning. Comes back feeling all righteous and virtuous to find we've been on the Bloody Marys/pints of fizzy lager since before breakfast and are frankly, giggling like idiots at anything and everything. He's always slightly disappointed at our lack of reverence/admiration for his efforts. Fair play to him though.

    Predictions for 2018

    I don't think the sound is that bad in there, it's more the contrast between the buccolic setting of the festival, the space, the fresh air, the country vibes, and then a walk into those gloomy tunnels with your eyes struggling to adjust and the juxtapositon between the outside, a stage among the trees with a fey country singer who's all like 'shucks, folks, y'all so sweet', and the dark and mean tent with some unhinged frontman with bad hair howling into a microphone. It's... intense.

    Btw, that doesn’t mean i don’t love the Garden Stage too, cos i really do. Even the Woods stage, which i occasionally hear people moaning about, is, for me, a fantastic place to see bands. 3 weeks to go, can’t wait. It’s only the Big Top which scares me a bit.

    I’m a big fan of the tipi tent. Dunno why, but it always feels very special and some of the most memorable sets I’ve seen at eotr have been there. I don’t necessarily mean the late night sets, the regular stuff also has a great feel in there. John Murry, The Burning Hell, Sam Lee, Andrew Coombs, loads of brilliant stuff there. And this years’ Saturday lineup for there is superlative, Gwenno, Soccer Mommy, Snapped Ankles and Sweet Baboo. Amazing.

    Predictions for 2018

    I'm fretting that Richard Dawson (who I love deeply) isn't right for a sunny (yes, sunny) Sunday lunchtime on the Garden stage. Has anyone seen him 1) outside and 2) during the day and can you put my mind at rest?

    Just been into town and picked up the reissue of the Moldy Peaches. Properly made up about it.

    Predictions for 2018

    Not too bad for me. What's giving you palpatations, mate? Only 2 that are really upsetting me, Ezra Furman vs John Cale and Jeff Tweedy vs St Vincent. Everything else is not too bad, and I can live with. One of the great advantages of Larmer Tree Gardens is the ability to cach half a set, then move on to another. No Glastonbury style trudging for 40 minutes from Park to Acoustc or whatever.

    Getting there late

    Ah, i’m out of sync between here and twitter. Sorry here’s the fb group. Worth joining just to ask about a lift on Friday. Don’t think i’ve ever posted on there https://www.facebook.com/groups/125270931623/ yeah, all good with me. You? Hopefully bump into you for a pint in the beavertown bar

    Getting there late

    I’ve been pondering this since you first posted yesterday. I don’t reckon you’ve gut much choice really. Any kind of bus + walk option using public transport would mean you’d get there too late for anything much on the Friday. I presume some people must come down after work on Friday, but how you hook up with them, no idea. Have you tried the eotr happy campers (although they’re anything but) forum on FB?
