01:30 pm - on preliminary jammy jam planning...

Stewart
featuring, my good friend and
former teen model, Gidge!
EDIT: If enough people want the party to be on 8/12 instead of 7/29, Steph would be ok with that. So really quick, when is a better party day. 7/29 or 8/12?

So as some of you already know, and others might not know, beststephi and I are tentatively planning Jammy Jam 2006 to be on Saturday, July 29th. It'll be great. It'll be maginificent. Decades from now, children will sing its praises as though it were the Woodstock of the early 21st century. Or something like that... really, the most important thing is that I get lots of good presents. Good presents could include, a Playstation3, Cash, sports car, cash, a supermodel orgy, cash, a new pinball machine, cash, an HD projector, cash or ummm... cash. On second thought, cash might be tacky, so I'm totally up for that orgy.

Oh, uh... where was I?

Oh yeah, so we've been tentatively planning Jammy Jam to be at the end of July. And as we get closer and start to make plans, an idea was floated by me. The lovely and talented but blog lacking sister of avocado_tom, Gidge called me this weekend and asked me if her band, Stewart could play Jammy Jam. I was intrigued by the idea. I've never really considered having a live band at the Maverick Jams before. Right now I'm actually kind of into the idea. So I told her, if she and her band are up for it, then sure.

But then I got to thinking, there's a couple logistical problems. Biggest one is, where the fuck do I put a band? As I see it, these are the basic options: Our living room, the bar area, my basement, the backyard, the attic. All have advantages and disadvantages. So I'm wondering. For people who have seen/been to Steph and my house, where would be the best place to put a band. Do you think its even a good idea to have a band? Should I give up delusions of grandeur and just toss on some MP3s?

And then that brings us to the second problem. If I were to go through the trouble of cleaning out and rearranging a section of my house (say the basement, but whichever area), is it worth it for just one band? Jammy Jam is usually like a 7+ hour event. Would it be cool to have 2 or 3 bands alteranting throughout the night? Are there any other bands reading this who would like to do it? You know? For like free and stuff? Well, all the beer they can drink anyway? *cough cough* bryguypgh and the Gladstone Ruckus, I'm looking in your general direction. Both of the bands I mentioned earlier were kinda punk-oriented. Anyone know a more poppy, rocky, or urbany hiphoppy bands that owe them a favor and want to do a set at my birthday party for free? sui66iy, can you make the DJ Slim Effect read this and comment as to whether or not he'd be interested?

Anyway, I'm looking for people's thoughts and input and whatever other ideas you might have. One day, Jammy Jam will become so large that I'll be required to rent halls instead of just my house and then we'll have it in a giant field somewhere where people will trip out on acid and have sex in the mud. Oh how glorious it will all be!

Well, one step at a time. Thoughts?

Not that I'll be there...

But I say a band should be in the backyard, on a stage built from left over pallets.

Re: Not that I'll be there...

that might be cool... that might fix one of the problems with my backyard (that being that it isn
t very level). It still leaves the other problem, that there's a pool in the middle of my backyard. But there'd still be room, I guess.

Passed it along to Slim. How committed to that date are you? As usual, there's a high probability I'll be out of town...
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: June 19th, 2006 - 05:57 pm (Link)
its not set in stone, but its fairly definite... maybe 95%

my birthday is the 1st of August. And Jammy Jam is nothing if not my birtday party. Besides, I've got wrestling shows 7/22 and 8/5. 8/12 is beststephi's birthday, so that could have been a possibility, but she generally prefers her b-day celebration to be lower key. A dinner somewhere or something. And then 8/19 I have another show again. It's a busy summer.

Where might you be?

So I would love to make music at jammy jam. Does jammy jam have magical ride-causing powers? Cuz if someone could pick me up from the Outer Banks, say, saturday morning...

I have one outside shot... I'll work on her.
[User Picture]From: avocado_tom Date: June 19th, 2006 - 07:11 pm (Link)
either date works for me, although the 12th might be slightly better. Not sure. I'd say basement for the band depending on when they're going on. Less stress on the neighbors... Unless, of course, you're starting in the afternoon.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: June 19th, 2006 - 10:13 pm (Link)
heh... just so you know, your sister seemed to have a strong preference for the 29th. And though she's always welcome to crash at my space if you're not around, I'm betting she'd probably like to see you.
[User Picture]From: blk Date: June 19th, 2006 - 07:22 pm (Link)
the 29th i'd probably make, the 12th definitely not. :)
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: June 19th, 2006 - 10:14 pm (Link)
I'm about 95% on the 29th right now, so feel free to pencil it in.

I'm fine with either date.

Oh, I should also point out that I'm highly in favor of the acid sex in the mud idea.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: June 19th, 2006 - 11:31 pm (Link)
it is such a dream of mine...

I will have to get back to you on that when I have more info, which will be after I get bacl from Alaska (which rocks btw).

I think your decisions are simply being made for you. :-P

My 2 cents worth... a VERY important 2 cents

Hopefully you received it in today's mail... your brother's Wedding Reception is going to be 7/29. So you may really want to consider having your party on 8/12! I'm just saying, is all.

Re: My 2 cents worth... a VERY important 2 cents

Perhaps the two can be combined...

My preference is definitely the 29th.

But I'm flexible.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: June 20th, 2006 - 02:26 pm (Link)
we're very much leaning towards the 29th. Its actually more convenient to us, too... and it appears most other people. Plus, its like my birthday party and stuff.

Have fun, rastamon!

Not sure if I'll be here that weekend, but I hope you have fun, rastamon! Once I get out of my lame studying phase and back into performing, one of your parties could be a great venue!

Re: Have fun, rastamon!
