PancakeFesten X: PPHQ 10th Anniversary Party/Barbecue/PancakeFesten/Benefit Concert/Scavenger Hunt/Sleepover FESTIVAL WEEKEND!
Pancake Productions Headquarters: I've lived, and been hosting shows, in this place for ten years. X marks the spot! Let's celebrate that with pancakes, croquet, food, live music, and most of all partying.
Attendance is FREE. Pancakes may cost a buck or two apiece. Let's say proceeds will go to the continued upkeep of PPHQ as a place to have a free fun time on occasion.There might eventually be a KickStarter associated with getting me a new pancake griddle that'll be an opportunity for free pancakes at this event? I don't know man, I'm playin' it by ear. The newest PANCAKE SAMPLER is slated for release at this festival and to feature nothing but songs about pancakes; some of them by the very acts that you'll see play live on one of TWO stages. Maybe there will be beer sponsorships (sponsorships of any kind are, of course, welcome--talk to me). Maybe there will be a scavenger hunt. Definitely there will be DIQBONGing. Any and all will be welcome to join. Here's a not-at-all exhaustive list of performers who have either agreed to play, or whom I assume will play just because they're that cool:
Lord of the Yum-Yum (Chicago, IL)
Paper Ceilings (Columbia, MO)
Lesbian Poetry (Des Moines, IA)
The Vanilla Beans
Seaby & The Rules - http://seabyandtherules.bandcamp.com/
The Ottomen (maybe we can finally get a Garage Lodge performance out of them)
Normandie Wilson (she probably owes me)
Popular Mechanics - www.facebook.com/popularmechanicsisaband
Fire Dog - www.seefiredogroll.com
Bitchin' Seahorse (you never know)
Curt Oren (Iowa City, IA)
Time Against Light
The Maness Brothers
4th City Rag
Dear Rabbit (Colorado)
Destroy Nate Allen (Kansas City, MO)
Stand-Up Comedy Showcase!
Magnus Honey (Chicago, IL)
Patrick Elkins (Ypsilanti, MI)
Brian's Bathwater (Brian DePauli and Martin)
Little Ruckus (Fairfield, IA)
Bible Belt Sinners
and MANY MORE. I'd love to book acts that are not traditionally acoustic and get them to perform acoustically. The weirder that'd be for a given act, the better it'll be to have them on the bill (I'm looking at you, Bug Chaser, Black James, Superfun Yeah Yeah Rocketship, M.S.I.F., and Tok). Acts that submit pancake song recordings for the Pancake Sampler will be given priority, natch. Music Friday 5PM-11PM, Saturday 12PM-11PM, and Sunday 12PM-10PM.
Lodging will be available in the garage or on the front lawn (bring a tent) at no extra cost (beyond FREE). If you don't know where to go, you'd better call 314-TOES-GRO!
Within the next coupla weeks/months I will finalize the lineup and times and post it all here. Submissions to perform are wide open. Submissions to the sampler are too (even for folks who can't party at the party). Get in touch soon. Mostly I'm creating this FaceBook e-Vent now as a placeholder so that people keep this thing in mind and don't book other junk during this weekend (or, if they do, they feel bad for it. Popular Mechanics!).

"Thursday September 11th the House Cafe and Don't Panic, It's a Distro welcome Plan-It-X Records (the official one) artist Eric Ayotte! Only $5!
Eric Ayotte- Personal/political acoustic singer songwriter.
The Gadabout Film Fest
The Charred Oak Barrel Boys
Eric Ayotte has been touring and releasing music for over a decade. His sincere songs bring a political message as well as an emotional truth. This tour will be supporting his 4th full length record “Transparency”, a full band album that explores the concept of honesty, and wanting more open communication from his community, government, friends, religions, and himself.
The Gadabout Film Festival has had a long standing tradition of DIY ethics matched with really cool filmmaking. Since 2002, the Gadabout has been touring with a new batch of films each year, brining film to non-film settings, screening an extremely inspiring and talented program of short films. Growing out of a DIY music scene, the Gadabout seeks to prove that “Do It Yourself” doesn’t have to mean any lack of quality. With equipment and technology more accessible, filmmaking is a more attainable medium, and yet we typically consume it through very tiny screens with poor audio. So, not only is there a curated element, but there is also respect given to these fantastic short films as they are presented on a big screen with good sound!
It's a back to school show at the space (all students will be charged $25 to get in)!
Catbath- Garage punk from the twin cities
Hungry Mountain- River drinkers from the Fox
The RPMs- New project featuring Davey Dynamite and Dave Green. Probably somewhere between nu-metal and riotfol
Chicken Happen- Riffs from Chicago
Rock Run Rookery Preserve 23065 S Youngs Rd, Joliet, Illinois
