Oneida again

So, I'm thinking I'd really like to go to this, but it's impossible to get a hotel in NYC around Christmas...so it would depend on finding a bit of floor or someone's couch at 4 in the morning.

Like to go to what? Oh, yeah, I've buried the lead again...Oneida's curating a one-day sort of festival, which they are calling OaF, short for Oneida Fest. It's on December 13, it costs $10 and here are the bands involved...(obvious highlights: Oneida, Oakley Hall, Dirty Faces, Parts & Labor, but these guys have excellent, serious taste, so I wouldn't be surprised if there were some good surprises among the earlier bands).

Main Space

9 - Brava Spectre
10:30 - Oakley Hall
11:45 - Sightings
2 - Oneida

Tap Bar

10 - Pterodactyl
11:30 - Parts and Labor
1 - Neptune

Old Office

9:30 - Cave
11 - Knyfe Hyts
12:30 - Dirty Faces

Been listening to that new Parts & Labor quite a bit, and it's pretty good, lots louder and less poppy than I thought at first.

i can ask Jill (my ex-wife) if you want floor space... she's still on Ludlow St... & pretty easy going...

That's very kind, but I don't think I'll probably really go.

Thanks, though, appreciate it.

you should... sounds fucking great!... i'd go if it wasn't as far away as the UK is...

I might see if any of the dusted guys are going...it'd be much easier to crash on someone's floor at 4 a.m. if they had been at the concert, too. I have a bunch of friends who would let me sleep on their couches in New York, but none of them are very comfortable with the R'NR schedule. (They're all opera people for some reason, odd.)
