Eee! After missing Hpx for the past two years, I'm back in town and quaking with excitement. But with 25 bands scheduled to see I have serious doubts whether I'm up to for the task. I don't know who will fall apart first—-me, or my ten-speed bicycle, Old Blue. This year you can look forward to a (hopefully) more interactive blog compendium to Hpx with interviews, photos and tech mayhem! I'm not going to bother giving you a heads up on why I want to see the bands I'm checking out. You should just trust me and go to them because my planning involved a Google spreadsheet with pink highlights that had some meaning that I no longer remember (I've underlined said highlighted shows below, although it's not the same effect as the pink, so maybe you can crack my mystery highlighting code). Now I'm off to pick up my pass, and I'll see you tonight at Pig and Red Mass!
