oops, just read this part

Organizers failed to provide for the performers as well; Blink 182 pulled out, informing fans on Twitter that the festival hadn’t accommodated needed production and performance equipment in advance of their set preparations. To make matters worse, “organizers missed a series of deadlines to make advance payments to performers, according to The Wall Street Journal.

I wonder if Tom could get one of the organizers of this festival to call in to the show this week. Somehow I would suspect that there must be someone who was in charge of this fiasco who is from Newbridge and who could explain what happened, who dropped the ball and who pulled a chokejob.

Agreed.  If you haven't yet, this NY Magazine article by a woman who worked on the festival is good for lots of laughs.
Maybe the best part is at a meeting where it's clear the whole thing is a disaster, but a marketing exec. says, “Let’s just do it and be legends, man.”

That guy is annoyingly squirrelly, especially after his first call when he was basically all but saying it and looooooooving the attention, but it is fun to hear Tom bust his B's.
