Rock and Roll Fantasy Tokyo

1 Comment

If you go out carousing with Pat Dunne, don’t expect to be home much before daybreak.

Tokyo nightlife

After some great cocktails and some snacks, we were off to catch a couple of bands.

The opener, The Dead Bambies, talked and joked as much as they played, but when they played they were punk as fuck.

Jungles!!! was loud as hell. Standing in the speaker cone was probably a bad idea. Two days of hearing recovery required. All four musicians were women, but a “girl band” this was not.

81 in July

The summer solstice weather could not have been finer. 81, sunny, perfect river weather.

Post river, it was time to light the fire.

The fire was perfectly constructed by JC.

The moon was full.

Thanks to all who came.

Perfect Weather Window for the 2016 Winter Solstice Party

1 Comment

Cold and rainy weather was a real possibility during the winter solstice party. But a day that started with a coating of ice everywhere turned warmer and beautiful before the party started. The next day was rainy. So boy are we lucky!

After lighting, it was time for music. The music lasted all night, right up to 5am when the weather shifted and it started to sprinkle.

We decided that due to rampant political disgust we would burn some flags. Real ones. This is a new thing. Thanks Trump.

Then it was back to the keg of dogfish head 90 and the fantastic potluck dinner in the barn. Super fantastic.

A gorgeous Virginia summer evening was just what the doctor ordered for the summer solstice party this year. Food, friends, fire, and all night music. Thanks to all who came.

This year featured lots of next gens (over 30) wandering the property. Needless to say, the keg ran dry around 3am. And they ate ALL of the cookies.

So orderly
