If the Forum is a-Dokken, don't bother knockin'

This spring at the Halifax Forum get ready to get right out of ‘er and basically have the best tailgate party of your lifetime. For on May 8, you get Blue Oyster Cult, Foghat, White Lion, L.A. Guns and Enuff Z'nuff and on May 9 you get Dokken, RATT's Stephen Pearcy, Slaughter, Faster Pussycat, Bullet Boys. This is the sort of shit I’m talking about. I mean, seriously. It’s called Cabin Fever Rockfest and the website is a little slice of internet heaven. There’s a whole bunch of random facts about members of the bands, and most importantly, info on the VIP tickets. The tickets include a meet and greet type thing with the bands and possible early entrance to watch the soundcheck, which, as everyone knows, is where the real magic happens. The site also alludes to the festival expanding, “And who knows if the tickets sell well there may be more days and artists added… instead of 2 days could you handle 3 or 4 days?? Lets see what happens” (sic) Either way, it’s a win win. Go and relive memories of making out in your Chevy Van or memories of last Friday playing Guitar Hero with the gang. Depending on your age.
