Special 10th Anniversary Edition

We Came. We Saw. We Played Our Guts Out.


I mean wow! What a rush. What an incredible time we had. What an incredible time the audience had! Five B.E. bands, five musical guests, free food, t-shirts, an abundance of chocolate, and did we mention all the music and good cheer?

This was certainly one for the history books. Good thing we had the foresight to have it professionally recorded! You never know when it will come in handy ... ;-)

Aye, the 10th Anniversary Concert succeeded beyond our wildest dreams (and they were pretty wild, let me tell you). So wild, that a lot of you MUST have stories or accounts of your own to tell. We'll surely post our own stories for others to read, HOWEVER ...

... while everything is fresh in your mind, we'd like to get YOU in on the act too. More of that "breaking down the fourth wall" stuff. Sure, we're all for breaking down the fourth wall. Down with sheetrock! Just say no to gypsum, blah blah blah.

But seriously, in a lot of ways (actually in all ways), this was really YOUR concert. This was our little-big way of saying thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years. We really do hope it was memorable for each and every one who witnessed it. I think I speak for all Broadside alums and members when I say this will never be forgotten, not by a longshot.

For those who didn't or couldn't be there, we still want to share the experience with you. You certainly deserve it! So here's what we're gonna do:

Wanted: Your Stories, Reviews and Photos

Effective immediately we are accepting any and all of the following, to be assembled for "a very special 10th Anniversary section" of www.broadside.org:

  • Accounts of your experience, thoughts you'd like to share, funny stories, not-as-funny stories, or really whatever's on your mind. We're not editing anything either (unless there's a really obvious spelling glitch - we'll check with you first).
  • Set reviews, and not just the five B.E. sets but ANY of the musical guest sets. You can review 'em all if you want. Again, no edits save spelling, and we don't mean Tori.
  • Photos! Scanned-in JPEGs work nicely, but we'll take TIFFs as well. There were a ton of camera flashes so we KNOW someone has photos out there. We'll certainly credit you when we post 'em. No, we will not digitally add Tom's moustache back to the B.E. III and later pix.
  • Anything else you'd like to send. (But, please, no more veggie pizzas to the PO Box. The last one got really funky ... but we appreciate the thought.)

We've even set up a special e-mail address where you can send it all:

[email protected]

If you have especially large size files to send us, and you have a web site of your own, consider posting them privately and sending us a hyperlink to your stash of goodies. Otherwise, use the "10th" e-mail address above.

We'll start posting stuff as we receive it, so hey! Don't delay! 'kay?

Meanwhile, may your holidays be festive and filled with lots of Vitamin C. We'll see YOU in 2001 (or perhaps sooner - we may be posting yet another update if we manage to book a late-breaking gig in 2000 <!>).
