This will be my first Sonic Bloom and first time to Winter Park since i moved to Denver just 9 months ago without a car to explore. This festival should be hell of great time. Ive heard great things about the weekend because the people in colorado are great, the weather and enviornment is absolutely perfect, and good sounds to hit the air. Steve Kimock is who im hoping to catch most, also Lotus because they put on a damn good show. Praang is basically KIMEOTOVER if anyone remembers those great shows in November in 2007 and 2006. Should be a great weekend.

I really dig Kimock, but even he couldn't make the electronic looping cool.

Amazing idea Drewski, although you'd have to keep a range-master with a shotgun on site to keep Bisco fans away.

A better way to keep bisco fans away from the frisbee golf course is just to leave a lot of valuables in your car within open sight.

i definently might go to this. wish it had more genre diversity though, 3 days of untz and those swirling textures might leave me a bit uninspired, ya know?
