But gettin' back to Fun Timezz, we've got a whole spate o' fun stuff lined up for you on Friday! As the "main event," we're "dippin' our toes" into the "waters" of "more regular live music" and anyway the point is that we've got T. Bloodhound performing an acoustic set from 8-10! And if you wanna get your nosh on while you listen to some tunes, we've got HotChix AND Blanche's Ice Cream up in the house and it's gonna be a hoot and you should come by!
As some of you may recall, the first of our anniversary parties had but one band: The Weisstronauts (who have played our party every year since, which is kind of amazing). And then the year after, we said to ourselves "that was fun, but what if we added more" and of course that was a great idea so we went up to four bands that year, and seven bands the next. And then we realized that seven bands in one day was maybe a bit too much, so (after a "socially distanced" in-between year) the next time (which would be last year) we decided to have nine bands, but spaced out over three days (and eleven sets, since some played twice).
But! We ran into a hiccup again, which is that since we brew a beer for each band at the anniversary, trying to cram nine new beers into our schedule during the middle/end of summer was maybe a bit taxing in terms of both time and space.
So! After some careful thought and some less-careful getting carried away with ourselves we decided that this year we're gonna be hosting fifteen bands! And since, assuming my math is right, fifteen is more than nine, we've decided to try this "planning ahead" thing that people keep telling us we should be doing (and so far it still feels like a scam? IDK) which is to say that we'll be releasing all these beers on a rolling basis throughout the summer (making sure to set some aside for the party, of course) and anyway we haven't made the Formal Announcement of the band lineup yet so you'll be seeing some band names come through in drips and drabs (with some surprises and many non-surprises) but rest assured it's in motion and keep them eyes peeled for Anniversary Beers!
** In our defense, we start planning this thing in like March, so we've already been talking about it for months.
