Recommended Posts

Looking for some guidance... Really want to attend Pisgah Jubilee this year. Does anyone know if you get camping on the property with Good Lovin' VIP tix? Thanks in advance!

No camping on site. There’s a KOA 1.2miles away but screw those people. They hate deadheads. Like as in calling the sheriff to look around our sites b/c they hate us.

The venue is in a sort of industrial area of Black mountain, so not much residential near by. Koa is a little over a mile, but it's a highway walk that I don't recommend.

I agree not a great waking area for camping or hotels. Uber would work great assuming they have Uber in that part of town. I stayed at the BM inn once. I was on a serious space ship ride and had to consider walking. It’s closer than the KOA or Super 8 but a buddy around here told me just to sweat it out. So I let the watchtower wash away the confusion as I knew there must be someway out of here. We drove home.

We took uber last year. I plan on letting go and don't want to be tethered by responsibility of driving...

One year we couldn’t find any Uber’s and hit the parking lot and bummed a ride. It’s pretty easy to find someone to give u a lift. These are deadheads after all.

The year I went solo and did KOA I ended up driving a truckload of drunk neighbors to and from. Was kindly rewarded with late night campfire fajitas. Good times. Then in the middle of the night I heard a ruckus and one of them had damn near torn his tent down from the inside trying to get out because he couldn’t find the door. 😂😆😆

We had some good times at the KOA until the storm trooper security guard and the fascist sheriff started doing sweeps of the tents late night. 3 out of 4 nights over 2 years the sheriff harassed us with the blessing of the old man security. Luckily you haven’t had those issues but tea, Gr8tfulpair, goingbacktowhere and others remember those days. Tea and goingbacktowhere hid in our tent pretending to be asleep with us because they were searching people looking for ways to get us. They had no reason to enter our rented campsites but they walked through everyone’s with no regard for due process. Fuck the KOA. They will never see a penny from me.

I know I'm not in, but what's a jubilee with a place to camp at the venue? As Patti Smith signs "come on to my land and let freedom ring, come, come. I hope everyone has the time of their life, the music will be tops, just fretting on what people are reporting on the after show respite

I got my sleeping arrangements. Staying with a friend of a friend. Don't know who it is, or where it is, but I do know that "it is". See you soon

So, I have a backyard in Asheville to sleep in, however, If anyone on the forums is renting a house in Blackmountain and wouldn't mind me pitching a tent in the backyard, send me a message-I'll donate some tent rent and perhaps one or two can vouch for me here. I'd just rather avoid driving back to Asheville.

Weather forcast for Black Bear mountain is looking good...high of 85 degrees, slight breese, and chance of rain about  only five percent.   We are in for a good little festival.

      A song that for me totally embodies the relationship between two incredible talents that speak to one another thru their instruments. They both really shine in this one. Heard Jeff do it last year, I think Atlanta, and he fucking killed it.  Makes me emotional to hear Jerry sing it during this era. He was awesome.

      I did both those jgb merriweather shows, alpine and poplar creek. Horn hat AKG 460's > dbx224(battery converted) >d5. The dixie at merriweather, the lonesome at Alpine and the let's spend at poplar were choice. Heading to Louisville this weekend for Uli jon roth , closest thing to hendrix I've ever seen. My first deal was when jg opened for fz August 1984 in Chicago. the studio version is a good listen.

      I love this song. I love the record version, and I love how it changed over the years. There were more than a few hot ones in 1983-1984, then while always good, it seems that 1989 brought out extra hot ones again. I love this one with JGB, its a toss up between this one and the Alpine Valley shows from the summer which I like best from that year.

    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: goganious · 02/09/2019
      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.
