PRFBBQ 2019 vital info!

This Friday will mark a deadline. The point past which you will not be able to vote on the band ballot for what is (in my humble opinion) the best DIY music event on earth. For a mere $40 donation you can support and/or attend what some have called “the gathering of the huggalos” (hugs optional).

It’s a party and benefit (this year for TPAN and The Long Walk Home) that features food, DJs, beer, fizzy water, friends, music, and hugs (hugs optional). There may even be a literary component.

It’s my favorite weekend of every year.

If you would like to throw in, paypal me a $40-per-pass donation at jhastie@penguinrandomhouse.com

If you do it in the next couple of days you will be able to have a say in which bands play (ballot to come!)

If you are part of a musical endeavor that would like to play for a crowd thirsty and enthusiastic music fans, email a submission (link to music or video) to prfbbq2019@gmail.com.

Again: if you are unfamiliar, YOU ARE WELCOME.
Let me know if you have ANY questions.

PRFBBQ 2019

Chicago summer BBQ –

* Thursday June 6 from 6PM to ???  – BBQ kickoff house party in Logan Square

* Friday June 7 from 7 to ???  – bands and bonfire in the West Loop

* Saturday June 8 from noon to midnight – bands and BBQ at Workshop 4200, afterparty from 12 onward

* Sunday June 9 from 2  to 10PM – more bands and BBQ at Workshop 4200

How can I go?  Donate $40 via Paypal to jhastie@penguinrandomhouse.com to get on the donor list. Donors get into all 4 events. Donations (minus modest expenses) and ALL raffle proceeds will be split 50/50 between Test Positive Aware Network and A Long Walk Home.  Use the “send to a friend’ option as it’s a charity donation and John doesn’t need to pay fees.

Can I donate without PayPal?  Sure, send an email to prfbbq2019@gmail.com and we’ll work it out.

Who’s playing this year?  Apart from a few surprises, donors are going to make the call this year.  Bands are already submitting their names and links to music, and people who have donated will do a ranked choice vote for their favorites after submissions are closed April 5th.  We’ll contact bands by votes and the lineup will take shape as they confirm that they can play.
