Unconfirmed Disappointment: Mucklewain 2008

So after a slew of phone calls, emails, and drunken shouts that Mucklewain 2008 was going to happen, I'm fairly certain it is not.  If you haven't already figured that out from the lack of news, it's been fairly confirmed by some of the folks who helped get it together last year.  I'm very, very sad to hear that news, but not surprised. Disappointed as well?  Here's what you should do.

Go to and leave a comment or send a message to Joie Todd.  If you went last year or the year before, tell him what the festival meant to you.  Tell him how far you drove to get there, tell him what acts you liked, tell him about the people you met, tell him what your Mucklewain was like.  Most importantly, just tell him thanks.  He needs to know how much we appreciate all he's done for the festival, and how glad we are that it happened last year.  If you haven't been but want to go, tell him what you've heard about it, tell him why you want it to happen again.  Tell him that we'll keep holding out for a Mucklewain 2009, or 2010, or 2020.  Tell him you'd be happy to help spread the word, or recommend bands, or get your business/radiostation/friends involved.  Let him know!

At any rate, I'm so glad I heard about Muckelwain in time to make it to last year's festival.  I won't forget about it--don't you either.
