So if you are into strange internet events, it’s time once again for Couch by Couchwest.
The ultimate independent music festival, it’s so alternative you don’t have to go anywhere at all. Just sit on your couch and let the festival come to you. Also, follow along on twitter at #CXCW or #CXCW14 to keep up with the conversation. No lines for the port-a-johns, no overpriced food and drink, no sweaty crowds (well, no idea what you house is like). It’s a very cool thing.
If you are musician, whip out that cell phone and make yourself a vid. Submission rules are here. It’s not hard, nor is it a discerning festival. They don’t run out of space, just time. That is a large part of the fun. To see what crazy really looks like, here is one of last year’s best efforts, by a band from Utah called Two Mule Blues. Explosions and everything.
This year I actually planned ahead and got a few friends from Lyons to help make some vids. I’ll pass them along when CXCW posts them. CXCW starts on March 9 and runs through the 15th. And because it’s all on the internet, you NEVER miss a set. Music, your couch, the internet, what more could you want?
Well, mustard. That’s what.
That will make sense if you follow Couch by Couchwest. I promise.
