TICKETS: Donate $40 via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org, click “sending to a friend,” and list your full name in the notes.
CHARITY: Our two charity partners this year are TPAN (https://www.tpan.com/) and A Long Walk Home (http://www.alongwalkhome.org/).
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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again: if you are unfamiliar, YOU ARE WELCOME.
Let me know if you have ANY questions.

How can I go? Donate $40 via Paypal to email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
