Title: (the) Melvins @ the 2007 Festival international - Victoriaville
Post by: ___-----_____------_____ on February 10, 2007, 02:56:55 PM
Just got word from my newsletter that the Melvins will be playing in Victoriaville the weekend of May 17th/18th - don't know which night yet.  Four years ago they were up there w/ the Big Band - a friend was able to make it up there for the show.
I'm looking into this one, but it seems unlikely for various reasons at this point - but I'm not 100% sure.  But also playing at the festivial are these few notable mentions:  Anthony Braxton (2 shows!)- John Zorn - Acid Mothers Gong - Merzbow - Keiji Haino ; to mention a few.
So who's making the trip??

Not so easy for me. No car. I've been looking at bus routes. Either I'm stupid or I'll have to take two buses. One to montreal and than another one to victoriaville. Knowing my friends don't won't want to pay 40-60$ for a bus ride to see "just" the melvins.

Right now I'm hoping for some other canadian dates closer to home.

Haha Maarten knows how long i've been waiting for this : )
Not to get your hopes up but I'm might be able to pick you up if your somewhat on the way and are willing to pitch a bit (ass gas or grass).  let me know.. I live in Kingston... so if you can find a route between Kingston and Victoriaville that goes by your place let me know and we will make it happen.

Im happy. Finally a concert experience is around the bend.

According to this you won't be going anywhere near me(ottawa). But, since you'll be driving by montreal. I could take the bus to montreal and get picked up there?

I'd be more than willing to pitch in for gas money and grass. Fuck, I'll ride in the trunk if I have to.  :P

Ya man i can meet you in Montreal. Sounds like we got things resolved a little bit.  Fuck this should be a good trip. I would only be going with 1 or 2 other ppl so there is room for you no worries.
When do the tickets go on sale?

I can almost see my school from my window view. It takes me 10 minutes by bike to get there, maybe 5 minutes more including getting my bike and stall it there. :toke:

My "Melvins Jar" has been started.
I have 30 bucks in it so far... must save 275$ before pre-sale price expires.
Title: Re: (the) Melvins @ the 2007 Festival international - Victoriaville
Post by: TommyHC on February 15, 2007, 03:58:49 PM
BTW.. Is 275$ CAN (taxes included) a fair price for a 3 day event (although I am only really going for the Melvins, I haven't really even been to a festival.. or  more than 1 or 2 concerts in my life so I can't gauge it.  Either way I'm pretty sure ill pay the 275 plus gas and other expenses to see them, it will be a journey.
Then maybe i"ll write a book about it like Maarten and post it : )




Edit:
340$ after pre-sale expires. I work 2 days a week between college. I just had to dip into my jar. Melvins Jar at 10$

In the past, you could purchase individual days as well  - you might want to email them, they're pretty good about getting back.
Accomodations can be tricky though, just becasue this Fest is in the middle of nowhere.  I'm becoming Jealous, I won't know if I'm going until mid-April....  that Braxton show will be a "Monster."

We can split the price of the room in four.That make 30 $ for everyone of us. I can sleep on the floor with no probleme. And since its your room, maybe we pay 40 each and you its free of charge.

We go to bed at 12:oo tough, since we have to get up at 6 in the morning saturday cause we work.

You are a dog omelette with cheese in the small house in the prairie?

That's about my best French actually. I can tell from experience it's not very useful.

Fortunately 'Je voudrais une bierre blanche, svp' works much better.
