The Virgin Fest was pretty good considering The Hip pulled out because of personal issues. (which is fine and Dinosaur Jr. fucking rocked by the way!) But godamnit! $6 for a can of beer! FUCK ME GENTLY!!! $24 for 6 beer! I'm glad that the concert was free, because I wouldn't have been able to buy a few beer if I had paid the $75 for a ticket.
Another thing, the setup of the concert, the beer gardens to the right, and everyone else to the left (separated by fences of course) which is fine. OK here was the situation, people who were drinking on the right side were not allowed to smoke. People on the left were allowed to smoke but not to consume alcohol. WTF???
All day & night security were running around telling the beer drinkers to put out their smokes. Why didn't they just allow the drinkers to smoke? Hell, 80% of drinkers usually smoke (even non smokers will bum a cig when their drunk) what really got me is that the "smoking side" is were families and kids were.
We're all outside, it wouldn't have mattered who smoked, it still would blow right into your faces (especially the pot smoke).---Tommyboy
