not up to the bandleaders, but the organizers and the city (even though bands don't hit the road until around 12:30 lol). If we get the starting of everything on the road at least around 10:30, then I guess things will start at 11, lol. I would love for it to end at like 6 like it used to a couple of years back.
Oh yeah I was coming here to post the list for the bands courtesy of facebook (I swear I'm getting more info from there instead of the official site):

I believe Traffic (and maybe Allison Hinds) will be at Xroads the Saturday night and not the Friday night as previously advertised.

yeah you're right, I had to go on their website just to make sure (yeah Ms. Hinds will be there as well). The information I got was from the official carnival website.



^^^ apologize if they're huge trying to do this quickly while the baby is sleeping.

I'm saying who is playin mud this year? I don't want to find out the week after of sobering up, and looking through pix to find out that there were members that I could've linked up with, lol. Who is everyone playing with in general? Also so far from the selection which fetes are y'all going to? And yardie what is this big fete at the armory? :polling:
Heard some good things about the mud band. I am torn between playing Mud and playing with the paint section of the Blu band (Blu Carnival | Find your blu).
hmmmm options options options.
