Dreyfest is just around the corner

Hey- howya doin'? How was Christmas? And your New Years? And your sister with the snowboarding injury- she still out of commission? Great, great- listen, let's dispense with the niceties and get to the real meat of this conversation- Richard Dreyfest 2014 is open for submissions and your sister is a jerk who got what she deserved!

Yep, that's right- we're gonna do submissions this time around. See, last year, we had more bands and artists than we could actually handle ('cause we said "yes" to almost everyone who asked!), so we figured that this year we should limit the amount of artists playing, and we think the best way to do this would be to ask interested bands/artists to submit recordings. Don't get all bent outta shape- it doesn't have to be a professional recording that you've got to spend $8,000 dollars on. You don't even have to buy Protools or pull a favor from your friend with a 4-track, really; as long as you have a recording of some sort- dubious boombox quality or super-polished pro reels- that you can get to us, that's good enough. Email us for a physical address to send it to, or just send us an mp3 (or other sound file) here:
After we receive all the submissions, the organizers of Dreyfest will get together and have a group listening session/debate/thumb wrestling match, where decisions will be made, opposable digits will be bruised, and a limited amount of artists will end up being put on the roster. 

And the deadline for submissions is...


Well, we'll have to get back to you about that. This here's more of a heads-up than anything.

So yeah- get recording, get pumped, get Mr. Holland's Opus on Blu-Ray 'cause it sounds like it's far away, but the first weekend of August- Friday and Saturday, August 1st and 2nd- is approaching faster than an entitled, snot-nosed brat approaches a black diamond trail douglas-fir!

See you at Dreyfest!


  1. Birds are Okay wants a shot! Our goal is to spread awareness that birds are okay. Not like: "Hey man, did you know birds are approved as domestic animals? They're OK!", but more like: "Hey Nick, do you have a problem with how birds chirp so obnoxiously?" and Nick would reply: "No way Ryan, their chirping is cool. I mean, birds are okay (shrug).".

    1. I have always thought that they were for the birds, but you may be able to persuade me otherwise.
