We're working on securing a venue for Saturday and Sunday. Sign ups will be posted soon after that.

bumping this thread, as Tom from Mercury Lounge posted a few weeks back, but I hadn't seen it to authorize the post. His comment should be on the previous page. hep!
kerble is right.

We starting to take band signups anywhere? I've got a few people interested (locals and bands that have played past BBQs). Know we've got plenty of time but the sooner I can come at our booker with something real concrete the better.


Tom, I'll hit you up. We're still waiting on Sat and Sunday venues, but maybe we should get going anyway.

UPDATE BUMP:

Venues:
Friday 8/31-Mercury Lounge NYC
Saturday 9/1-TBD
Sunday 9/2-Mercury Lounge (?)

Here's what's up with PRF NYC 2018. Friday is a go with Mercury Lounge and possibly Sunday--still have. We could use a hand with a venue for Saturday and possibly Sunday, we are looking at Alphaville and Sunnyvale and possibly Market Hotel (that venue is super cool). Does anyone know the booker/owners of any of those places? I'd rather connect with an interested/sympathetic venue rather than cold calling and trying to have a NYC venue buy off on a 12 band fest.

We'll have a backline available. If you're not familiar with loading in at a Manhattan venue, it's a special sort of hell I wouldn't wish on anyone. Please leave the 4x12 at home and use one of the house cabs. More details on that to come closer to the date.

I've updated the band list with the list of bands I've reached out too that said they'd be into playing it. Please let me know if your band can definitely make it out and play.

I would like to make PRF NYC as inclusive as possible. Bands with women, gender-queer, LGBTQ, people of color, please get in touch. Community should be for everyone.

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

BUMP. So far, we've only heard from eight bands. Is that all? At this rate we'll probably just have a single day Friday thing.

It has to be PRF bands to play the PRF gig? I'm sure there are plenty of bands that would love to play if they were aware of the possibility.

I live down the street from these guys - https://languagenyc.bandcamp.com/. They're great and totally seem like the kind of people that would be into this. I can talk to them if ya'll are interested.

Cool thread. We put on exactly one New York PRFBBQ. Exactly one band cancelled. At the last minute, fucking shit up. Anyone dare to take a stab at whose band that was?

Please, continue. It’s fascinating.

Hi, yes, I play drums in this band: eighteenhundredandfrozetodeath.bandcamp.com. https://dethcaps.bandcamp.com/ is also stuff I do on my own.

How about you, any music to share?

No Avis O’Hara? Or eastern anchors?

What the hell?

I’d absolutely love to throw NeutronFriends in the mix, but Tony is getting married the weekend before and we are leaving room for others this year by giving a miss to all PRF BBQs (aside from Durham)

How about Savak? They were a near miss for two PRF Wests, this is pretty much in their neighborhood

I hate to say it, but a Facebook thread might help. Seems like traffic is way, way down on the forum.

I’ll most likely find a way to attend though.

Anyone know any of the EIS bands? There's at least 5 around here that are awesome that would be great to play.

How about these guys, I think I saw them come up in the last day or two here. https://youthexpire.bandcamp.com/

Yo, it's been a busy few weeks for me and FM Ronch Lagas in our personal/work lives so PRF NYC planning has taken a back seat. We will regroup next week and see what's what. So far we have Friday on hold, we were looking into an alternate venue for Saturday/Sunday.

We were also thinking about just doing a two day thing depending on the number of bands that want to play. It might not be the worst idea to keep it as chill as possible.

Posting this in the most convenient NY based thread - I have an extra ticket to Lou Barlow Sat. May 19th in Jersey City if anyone wants it. Not worried about the $, just hoping someone can use it.
