Romantic Getaway (formerly Horriblefest) 4/30 - 5/2
April 15, 2009 12:34AM
Fest put together by Erin from Hot Trash, Paul from NTC, and myself. More info and links to band pages at [myspace.com]

ROMANTIC GETAWAY 2009 (formerly HorribleFest) official details!

Ticket Information - Tickets will be available AT THE DOOR ONLY. No advance sales. All shows are first-come first-serve, so try to arrive on time! Friday and Saturday night are both likely to sell out before the end of the night. If you are travelling from out-of-town, and may arrive late, let us know.

Afternoon information - Both Friday and Saturday afternoon shows will be free, in the back of Now That's Class. A HOT TUB will be there both days, so bring a swimsuit! (No the hot tub is not a joke). The patio bar will be open and feature specials on mixed drinks. There will be a small break after the free shows, until the bar opens for the main shows.

Afterparty information - Still working out the details, but there will likely be an official afterparty going on Friday and Saturday nights in the Downtown Cleveland area, possibly with live bands. Location will be announced at the main shows.

Out-Of Towners - An online map will soon be available, showing locations of nearby record stores, restaurants, hotels, and other points of interest. Some locals may have crash-space available, but it will most likely be in high demand, so you should try to plan ahead.

CD Sampler Information - A CD sampler featuring bands playing the fest will soon be available at Cleveland area record stores (My Minds Eye & Phonographic Arts). It will also be available to download online.
