    So sorry guys. I know how enthusiastic you all have been about this event.
    WANTED: Sig-worthy quote.

    Appreciated...but it's pretty much where things are at right now. SXSW, Big Ears, most likely CTTE. Probably lots of smaller events before long too.

    If it helps cut down the rate at which this little bastard can spread, I'm fine with it

    I was having a little trouble getting excited about my choices for the schedule.

    They made the right decision and they are doing it the right way (giving refunds).

    Hey, just a note of followup.
    Still haven't seen refund, but they said it would be around April 1 ( see above ).
    I took the chance that next year would be a go and I have gotten gift cards from downtown Knoxville businesses that I frequent while at Big Ears.
    It might not be enough to matter to them in the face of all the other stuff going on, but, it can't hurt.
    I hope y'all are doing well.

    Looks like they are trying to run 2 weekends of Big Ears next year, March 18th and March 25th.

    Two weekends worked super well for Sonic Circuits in DC, yep

    I'm going to wait and see exactly what this means for them, whether these two separate weekends would even interest me or not, before I'll pass judgement. Not to mention, it's still not even 100% certain the festival will happen at that point or not. World might not quite be ready yet.

    Yeah, I'm going to see how this all works out, given I'll be carrying a bunch of vacation over form this year and haven't spent any of my usual concert & travel budgets I might be tempted to try and make both weekends work.

    I will reserve judgement until they release the details.
    First reaction is WTF are they thinking, unless the goal is to shrink the festival to a more local/regional instead of National/International focus.
    Or they are going for the Aspen/Hedge Fund crowd.
    We shall see.

    Apparently they want to bring a bunch of bands back and they can do one weekend or the other.

    They sort of do that anyway.
    There would be some number of people who would be there for both weekends.
    And there would be the potentially hard choice for anyone else to pick one or the other, or neither.
    I will just have to wait for the details to see where my interest lies.

    Actually, at this point I am more interested in Schrodinger's Festival coming up.
    You don't know if it's going to happen until you open the box.
