Snacking on Bragg Jam
I feel like I just wrote about Bragg Jam!
Last year’s Bragg Jam was my first, the first time I wasn’t out of the state for work or out of the country for me. Last year, I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off, and it would have gone much worse for me if I hadn’t had my handy dandy printed Venue/Musicians checklist.
Do you have your Bragg List ready?
This year, the Bragg Jam page doesn’t have a great way for you to print and highlight your list. Sure, you could use your phone and check the listings, but you know it’s going to be dead by 9 because everybody and their pooch has been calling you to find out which venue has your your attention at the moment, and you’ve been taking too many pictures, or you accidentally dropped it in your reasonably priced extra large beer. While the Concert Crawl page on the Bragg Jam site is beautiful, I want a print worthy list.
So I made a .pdf of the Bragg Jam Schedule. Just click the link and print it out.
That printed list saved my ass last year as bands didn’t go on in time, or other bands ran over, etc. I think it might be helpful to you as well.
This year’s list of bands look so good. It’s good to see Third Street Park and The New 567 at 533 Cherry Street on the list. Of course, The 567 was a venue last year, just remember they are at a new address. So, who are you going to see? I’m definitely making my start at Third Street Park before heading to the Hummingbird. Then it’s a toss up between Bottom’s Up and The 567. I’m hoping that I will get to see American Aquarium for sure, then maybe catching the end of Abby Owens and the Dirty Guv’nahs with some Citizen Insane in the mix. And where in the HELL will I end up at the end of the night? Ralph Roddenbery Band? Roly Bots? Hank Vegas? Tron Jackson just because their band name is Tron?
I hope the printable schedule works for you and if you were on the fence about whether you should go to Bragg Jam, my answer is a resounding Hell Yeah! Even the heat can’t beat how good this event is and you get the best of local (although a few are missing – MagTard, Xavii, Trendlenberg, Back City Woods, Cult of Riggonia) you also get some really good bands that travel to Macon often (American Aquarium, The Dirty Guv’nahs) and one of my favourites from last year, The Moaners, are returning as well. There’s plenty to do, eat, and definitely hear, so get out there and enjoy yourself!
So, let me have it! What’s your schedule going to look like?
