We can't wait to see you!

It was brought to our attention recently that the actual, technical, meteorologically-correct first day of summer is June 21, Summer Solstice.


We live in an alternate reality down here in the dunes of Cahoon Hollow and in our world summer starts on the Thursday before Memorial Day - always has.* Therefore, summer starts tomorrow (or today, depending on when you check your email). Happy summer!

Have you checked out the calendar lately? It's one of the best ever. Built to Spill, Arrested Development, Donavon Frankenreiter, John Brown's Body, Kathleen Edwards, Rhett Miller....the names just keep popping up (and the tickets keep selling so you might want to get on that). Check back often because we don't know what's gotten into Dan this year but he is a booking fiend.

We keep hearing that people are all a dither about getting here this Thursday and Friday - as well they should be. Thursday and Friday are the days we give out free passes, which get you free or discounted cover on a bunch of nights AND free parking in our very lovely parking lot (space available, obvs). As if that weren't enough, we've got a killer opening night line-up with Earth Junior, The Ticks and The Greenheads. The 411 on the entire opening weekend is listed below for your reading enjoyment.

Completely unrelated, we are already bffs on facebook and twitter, right? Right.

Here's what's on deck to start:

May 27, 9pm $10

Free summer pass with paid admission

May 28, 9pm $10
