“At first I was a little nervous about spending the money when the bands hadn’t been announced yet, but then my friend told me that the Chip’s been doing this for well over 30 years now, and they know how to throw a good party. I bought my passes and ended up having the time of my life. Best thing I’ve ever done. I go to a lot of concerts and there’s nowhere else you can see shows like this for under 20 bucks a day. And even if there was, with everything else going on, it could of been a bucket of crud up there on stage. Woulda still been worth it.”
