Corndogorama 2012

This Sunday will mark the seventh year I have played Corndogorama - really an institution in Atlanta Summer festivals and I really want to thank Dave Railey for bringing it back. What is really great about Corndogorama and sets it apart from the other festivals is that it really has the feeling that one guy is behind it, who loves the experience and really does his best to make it an informal and fun experience. So many festivals out there feel so detached from the music and excitement that should be in the air at these events, more like an outdoor shopping mall with some bands playing in a tent at the end of the street. So I'm glad Dave is back, bringing the depravity and absurdity that is Corndogorama, which has always been one of the most memorable events of the Summer.

I believe this year the bands will play inside the EARL, which I think is the best scenario since the heat and rain variables are taken out of the equation, the sound will be great, and it will be a perfect environment to enjoy both the music and insanity that surrounds this event.

Here is an old post I did of past Corndogoramas, and I'm still looking for scans of all the lineups of every year if someone can send them to me. Some bands that I have noted related to posts on this blog are of course Skin Jobs featuring Rick Moore of Barrel, Rebar, Galanas:Cerdd, Copa Vance, Home of the Wildcats, The Wayne Williams, Lay Down Mains, and several others I am forgetting, Mysourri who did include Cade Lewis from Chocolate Kiss on bass, but I'm not sure if he will be playing in this lineup, The Meeks Family featuring Brooks Meeks from The Close, and of course Noot d' Noot with many connections to this blog. So in total I have played Corndogorama 4 in 1999 (with Chocolate Kiss), Corndog 5 in 2000 (with Chocolate Kiss), Corndog 6 in 2001 (with Chocolate Kiss), Corndog 12 in 2007 (with Sonn Av Krusher), Corndog 13 in 2008 (with Noot d' Noot and Sonn Av Krusher), and Corndog 14 in 2009 (with Noot d' Noot and Judi Chicago).
