This is the thread where I will post the lineup and schedule for PRF BBQ 2012.
We are holding this event in memory of John Grabski of the band Teeth who lost his battle with cancer this year. Plans were in the works to fly Teeth to this year’s BBQ and to have them perform. He was robbed of the chance to do this. We party in his honor, and we intend to party hard, so we decided to do it right.
As of right now, we have events planned for Wednesday June 27
: The 2nd or 3rd annual PRF Adult Day Care Roller Coaster Romp n' Rodeo
at Great America, to check out the new fucking bad ass X-Flight Coaster.
After Roller Coasters, under cover of night, a small faction may break away from the group and seek out a bit more ADULT themed debauchery. The 2nd annual PRF Festival of Lechery
will commence with either a commando style raid into a nearby farmyard, where we'll commandeer dairy cows to use in our crossing the border into our slow witted, but good natured, portly neighbor Wisconsin in search of these lapdansical delights, or do it correctly and head straight to Harvey, blasting stoner rock jams the entire way down.Thursday June 28
, afternoon, The 2nd annual PRF Beach BBQ Hang n' Bang
on the the lakefront. We go, we chill, we swim, we eat hot dogs and take turns oiling one another up like silly little freaks. It's a stone groove. Acoustic beach bongo rock is being negotiated as we speak.Thursday night
, the party moves down to Kitchen Sink for John George Pepper's First Annual PRF BBQ Civilized MicroBrew Tasting Soiree
PRF members from near and far who hold craft beer in high regard will brings their favorites from their neck of the woods and everyone will share and taste and feel fine.
There will be live music this evening from:Gay Name
(NYC / Chicago)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gila2Yc_Yw0Loex
, all daylight hours, people do whatever the hell they feel like.
Personally, I would hope there is love making, mass showering, sightseeing, hard hitting street puppetry, Hot Dougs, that sort of thing.
Let us begin again Friday night June 29th
at Quenchers for the PRF International Friday Night Lights 7 Band Power Run
I have instructed the city to begin 'testing' the citywide air raid warning siren system at exactly 8pm
, when you hear this, it means the first band is starting. Drop what you are doing and immediately get into Quenchers for rock.
Outdoor patio WILL be open, BBQ will be taking place!
