Stupid Big Continent

MeltdownLogo.jpgThat's all I can say. Because, really, if the 2nd annual Meltdown, the show put together by Bill Childs of Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child were less than, you know, a 72-hour-drive, I'd seriously consider going. And since I'm already going to Austin for SXSW in March and Brooklyn for Kindiefest in April/May, springing for a cheap airfare is out of the question. (Not to mention I like spending time with my family, too.)

But if your distance (or budgetary) constraints are looser than mine, I highly recommend a trip out to Northampton on Saturday, March 27. Bill's put together a heckuva lineup -- Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem, Elizabeth Mitchell, Uncle Rock, Dog on Fleas, Keith Munslow, and lots, lots more. The lineup's even more impressive when you consider it's free free FREE! (Say that in a booming voice. I do.)

So, yeah, those of you residing in the population-dense East Coast should definitely consider a trip out to Massachusetts later this month. With lots of video cameras and a YouTube account to make the rest of us jealous.
