re: More Turnpike Bad news - hogfly
They’re slated to play a music fest here in August. I know some of the financiers of it, and I told them what a risk they were taking putting them as headliners. They said they have some pretty ironclad contract stuff in there to avoid getting screwed by the band (singer). ...

re: How old to go to concerts - hogfly
No clue about venue restrictions. I would just give them a call. My kids have been going to shows with us since they were like 5, and now my eldest plays out in bands. Anyway, for younger kids, use some discernment when it comes to type of show, expected audience (how much pot will be smoked, and l...

re: Farmer's Co-Op becoming a mixed-use development. - hogfly
Started school in 1992 and became a “local” in 1994 when I stayed in Fayetteville over the summer and worked for a business run by local old head hippies who had homesteaded Pettigrew in the 70s. So I joined those masses of unwashed hippies. There was nothing better than hitting happy hour at George...

re: Farmer's Co-Op becoming a mixed-use development. - hogfly
Not to mention the arts corridor basically connecting this area to Dickson. The gentrification of south side has been underway for 15 years or more. I dig that area though, so I’m cool with it. It’s hilarious to see what some people are asking for shite hole old rental houses down there, hoping ...

Kevin Morby new album out today - hogfly
I'm surprised this guy doesn't get more love around here. He is also in the band Woods, who are really good. Anyway, his stuff is just kind of straight forward, good gospel/country tinged rock and roll. He kind of reminds me of Lou Reed at times. New album is [i]Oh My God[/i], and I really enj...

So many out there right now who hardly get any love. Phoebe Bridgers has gone pretty far up my listen in the last year or so. Kevin Morby is awesome as well and released a new album today. ...

re: Spinoff thread: what dorm did you live in? - hogfly
I remember when I found out pledges no longer get lived in houses. That seemed so weird to me. The entire pledge experience was living in house and having drunk old heads show up at 3am from the bars to entertain themselves with a lineup of the pledges. And Fraternity house for first two yea...

re: Opinions on St. Louis ? - hogfly
The Brewery that a lot of people have missed is Urban Chestnut's beer hall. Pretty awesome place with good food. Botanical Gardens are great. City Museum is amazing. St. Louis Art Museum is very good. Zoo is awesome. If you're into food/drink, I can give you a good rundown, but I'll s...

Selling Fortnite Accounts - hogfly
Okay, My 11 year old has come up with a scheme to merge he and a bunch of his friends' accounts to make a "super account" with a ton of skins and then sell it online then divide the profits. 1) I'm impressed with his entrepreneurial spirit, especially because his reasoning is that Fortnite pop...

re: Ever going to be a re-surge of classic motels? - hogfly
Refurbing these hotels is definitely a trend. Funnily enough, I went to the El Rey in Santa Fe yesterday afternoon for happy hour. It’s an example of this and gets a lot of buzz from the LA hipster crowd. There’s one in Eureka Springs, Arkansas called the Wanderoo Lodgd. ...
