(BANDS ADDED) PRF NYC 2018: Aug. 31-Sept. 3, 2018

Postby Ben Abraham on Fri Jan 19, 2018 11:58 am

BAND LIST:
Here are the list of confirmed bands so far.

Austerity Program
Nonagon
Faking
Risk/Reward
We Ride On
Forces
Cushing
Eighteen Hundred and Froze to Death


With the cancellation of PRF Lou, this is a thread to gauge interest and plan for a potential NYC PRF event over Labor Day weekend. I've been talking to a few venues around the city and I wanted to see if this is something that would be of interest.

Was the conceptual April NYC event cancelled due to the North Carolina event? I think it was but don't remember if it was posted that it was actually off. Maybe Boombats needs to chime in, of course I think that a Labor Day event sounds great if available though I will probably be out of town.

Nothing really got off the ground with the April date.

Also make setting things up a lot easier if we had volunteers for the following:

Sound engineer
Door people
Merch people
Clean up crew etc.

It would be less things that the venues would have to provide and would make the whole thing more feasible.

This may or may not be a BBQ type deal. But chill hangs and good eats will be assured.

If I can get a go from the venue I'll throw up a band sign up sheet.

I'd be happy to take a shift or two in any of the above mentioned roles.

Also, just throwing it out there - are there a few NY area bands who would be interested in trying to set up a local show to test the waters a bit before we go for an all out bbq? The last few places we've played have shut down and I'm a bit out of touch.

Here's my plan; get a venue in NYC interested in a community based event--i expect this will be challenging but not insurmountable. If they're amenable to it, I'll go ahead and set up a booking thread. Also what's the feelings on the number of bands that play per day? I know it can get exhausting running through a gauntlet of great bands. I was thinking 6-8 bands per day and allowing for time to chill in-between.

I think if this is going to be an all-day thing you could do more than 6-8, especially if you backline cabs, shells, etc. My band, Cushing, would definitely be down to play as well.

Also - is anyone else in NJ? I'm in Jersey City and there seems to be a lot of venues but haven't seen much "local" music happening, mostly touring bands.

If it's not a benefit for something then it's a failure. I volunteer to contract typhoid or something cool like that if you need a poster boy

I'd like to do a benefit type deal, but I don't know if this is the best event for it. I think something like All Tomorrow's Impeachments is a format for that.

Furthermore, I can't figure out how to get a venue into it, and get touring bands some gas money. I've always felt that working, touring bands should get as much of the door as possible. My idea for these events is to make it the best shows for the bands and the audience and bring the community together.

If anyone wants to start lead a charity/benefit side thing alongside, I would support however I can.

I am tentatively down for something. If a benefit, it should be for ACLU or SPLC. Jersey City would be great, as it is more convenient for me, but whatever.

I can set up mics and run a board - there will no doubt be lots of folks willing to do the same.

I can donate a 50W Hiwatt Clone and a 25W Traynor head, and a loud as fck 2x12. I sure ain't using them....

Timing is good, except, you know it is soccer season, so I may have other commitments. If there is a tournament that weekend, i am screwed.

Motorbike guy, where are you? Are you in any band(s) that would want to want to try for a Jersey City show? I've been meaning to reach out to Pet Shop (Vegetarian Food / bar with music sometimes in the basement), but don't know (m)any other bands to fill out the bill.

I am in Central Jersey (Near Trenton/Princeton). I am sadly not in any bands - hence the non-use of my amplifiers and cab. I don't know JC at all, but I hear it is pretty cool. I don't get out much.

I'm just coming here to reiterate my request that this event be called "Choochella".

Who would be ultimate artists for actual Choochella? I'm thinking Dave Matthews has to top the list right?

If we call a NYC party Choochilla, chooches will show up. Do we really want to attract the professional vaping crowd?

Also, most likely the venue will be in NYC or Brooklyn or (maybe Queens).

It’s generally a more central area to get to with other cool stuff to do within walking distance for out of towners. That said, if you guys have an in with a venue that’d be into doing an all ages night, that’d be cool. It’s something i’d like to do but will be impossible to pull off in NYC.

If you call it Choochilla, choochy chinchilla breeders will show up. That's why it has to be called Choochella.
