Hear, hear. You can only help so many bands when you put off a festival. If
it were me, I'd choose my favourite bands too. Hey, I thought I was pretty
good friends with Peter and Angie and POTMASTER didn't get invited. But I
don't think we'd fall under the POP category anyways, maybe under the 
EXPLOSION category though. YEAH, i kinda like that Potmaster, masters of
EXPLOSION ROCK. We'll have to get a wicked pyro show.
Anyways Mike, you should start an outlaw festival with all the bands you've
mentioned plus every other band that has not been invited to the festival
and then hold it at the DEUCE. How punk! How DIY! No even better do a FREE, 
ALL AGES, breath smelling at the door (optional), mind bogglingly over 
booked, mammoth rock festival of EXPLOSION ROCK BANDS and don't forget to
invite me. :)
Peace, HUB.
