    A friend just called to tell me about this music festival being held somewhere near Tallahassee in November. He told me Dread Clampitt AND the Drive By Truckers would be playing this event, along with Tishamingo and a bunch of others. He said it was on some farm about 20 miles north of Tallahassee.

    Anyone ever heard of this festival and know any details?

    Thanks. I don't see DBT listed, but the guy I talked to swore they were on the bill. Maybe they have just been added and they haven't updated the site yet.

    JB, I can't say enough good things about this fest. Great location dripping with spanish moss, great music onstage and at the campsites, and the camping itself is ideal: shady, FLAT pine forests with soft ground, hot showers available. Nice people running the event. We played it last year and are lined up for this year too. This time we're going to stay and camp both nights, because it was magical. We met lots of great people.

    YES! My info was correct. It is official. Drive By Truckers will be headlining this festival.

    Only problem for me is this is the weekend of the Alabama/LSU game. DBT plays Friday night, so I won't have to miss them, but I would like to stay for the whole weekend.

    Anyone know of a watering hole nearby that might televise the game?

    Where will you stay? If a motel you will be able to watch it there.

    It is real close to Quincy and Havana which should have a bar or 2.

    Just now, I happened to be looking at the website and listening to Tishamingo on their site also. It will be a great event.

    Wake Forest is playing FSU in Tally that Saturday.

    We'll camp at the festival. I have a buddy with all the gear one would ever need, plus a really cool VW Bus/hippiemobile.

    If there are RV's at the festival, someone will likely have the game on Satellite.

    Hopefully, we can spend Sunday at the beach somewhere and head back on Monday.

    Sounds good. I don't know if I'll camp or room it. It will depend on what time our game is.

    If this is like some of the other fests I've been to, by Sunday morning my liver will have had enough.

    But I'll make a special effort to stay for you, sugar.
