Anticipating the Big Bird Bash
I’ve always like the title “Big Bird Bash.” It’s not just the Bs bouncing across my tongue, but the concept of a full day of music from some pretty good local talent. Next year, there will be no more Big Bird Bash. As we prepare for a multi day Macon music festival next year, we get to retire the Big Bird Bash in style.
It’s a stellar line up, that’s for sure! Gringo Grande, Modern Skirts, Back City Woods, Moon Taxi, Dirty Sound Professors, Drivin’ N Cryin’, and featuring Drive By Truckers. I’m pretty sure you want to go to this. Tickets at $25 is a deal since you’d probably pay this just to see the Truckers. Also, Luther Williams Field is a great place to see some great bands. Who wouldn’t want to go? But I get it. Sometimes you just don’t have $25 to give to a night of music. You need gas to get to work or food for the next week. So I have a deal.
The generous people at The Hummingbird Stage and Taproom gave me a press pass, as well as a t-shirt and two tickets to give away. Except I’d already bought my ticket, so now I have a ticket I don’t need. I like stories. I mean, really like stories. So here’s the deal: Like the Big Bird Bash page on Facebook and then tell me a story of the first time you saw any of the bands from the Big Bird Bash live. The story I like the best will get two tickets to the event. My next favorite story will get a t-shirt and a ticket to the event. You must tell a story with a beginning, middle, and end. This is not Apples to Apples. You don’t have to know me. Just tell a good story and you may win tickets to this Saturday’s BBB! Please write your stories in the comments of this post. Deadline is Friday at noon. Those are the only stories that will be considered. I can’t wait to read your stories!
