Comfest 2012 schedule posted

(From 2011. No Envelope this year.)

Head to the Comfest website for the full Friday, Saturday and Sunday schedules.

Thoughts? Head to the Farm.

Comfest 2012 to get new location, new spin on traditional music lineup?

Found this on Ticketmaster.com this morning.

Does this mean Comfest is moving to the Alrosa Villa? Does this mean the theme this year is centered around Juggalos?


Video: Lydia Loveless – “Steve Earle” (Live at Comfest)

He won’t stop calling and I’m not sure how to blow him off
He stands outside my window until I have to call the cops
But they always let him out of jail cuz he’s a famous face
That’s a funny way of asking me to go out on a date…

Steve Earle, won’t stop calling me

Lydia Loveless’s Comfest set was one of my favorites, and new song “Steve Earle” was a set highlight. It’ll be on her new album, Indestructible Machine, out in September on Bloodshot.

Comfest 2011 Music Schedule

Comfest has posted the 2011 Music Schedule using a difficult to read PDF tool.

I was surprised that they didn’t put Phantods on the Main Stage. Also surprised there was so many bands I don’t know.

AND JUST IN TIME FOR COMFEST: We’ve brought back the Donewaiting Friendship Farm Message Board. Don’t call it a comeback. Unless you want to.

Comfest 2010

Currently the official website is broken but discussion continues on in our joyous message board.

I’m not there this year so I am following along on Flickr and Twitter.

Video: Gibson Bros – “Big Pine Boogie” (Comfest 1987)

YouTube Preview Image

Thanks to Davey Highben and his treasure trove known as the Never Ending Compilation for pointing me to this video of the Gibson Bros playing “Big Pine Boogie” at Comfest in 1987. Apparently it’s from one of the band’s self-released tapes called “Has anybody got an assburn?”

The Gibson Bros will reunite at the CMC’s Parking Lot Blowout in Columbus on July 10. New poster after the jump. Continue reading
