    yes I heard about the ALL SOLD OUT status!
    what do the weekend passes get you outside of attending any of the venues? aren't the venues first come?

    Opening party at Bud N' Alleys Friday with the artists, access to all venues all weekend, and Indigo Girls show Sunday.

    Yes venues are first come first serve. I am learning about how to "lay out" my schedule of who I want to see - I would plan ahead if there is a big act involved in your plans.

    Weekend passes are sold out, but think you may be able to buy day passes and passes for the Sunday concert online.

    The CAA has decided to do one night only cover charges at Bluz for the late night shows, until we are at capacity. The armband for these shows will be $10.00 and will be collected by the CAA each night. The armband will only be good at Bluz.

    In addition to the shows at Bluz nightly, other non-passholder activities include brunch at Hibiscus, In-store performances Saturday and Sunday at 1pm at Central Square Records, and The Indigo Girls Concert at Alys beach on Sunday at 2 pm, $35/person.

    thanks John R. several people have asked about checking out a show or two during the weekend and whether there is general admission available. I am unclear on how a venue will be handling drop ins without a pass.

    Can you please correct me if I have this wrong:

    1) I have a weekend pass so I can get into all the shows ............. if I get there early enough so there is still room for me.

    2) People can still buy a "day pass" that allows them entry to shows that day.

    3) If you don't have a weekend or day pass you cannot get into the shows or the bars/restaurants they are at.

    Its not clear to me. Hibiscus just posted an event announcement with menu items and admission cost - it appears to be open to the general public - there is no mention of a pass being required. are these open to the general public or just pass holders? what about other venues? will they charge admission for pass holders or for non pass holders? not sure about any of this.

    I thought the Hibiscus was just a special event open to the public that they were doing to piggyback on this event.

    Would like to get this figured out as we are trying to plan/coordinate.

    according to John R in another thread:
    I'm assuming all other venues require passes.

    Does "no" to #2 mean both the weekend and day passes are sold out?
