Oh yeah the Champagne Room! Was that the semi-locked area with links for downloads and stuff that you had have a certain amount of points/reps to go into?

Yes I believe his name was Peter! I never really interacted with him much but I've always loved that tattoo.

I toured with Russ Substance in 2006 (and by tour I mean he asked me to drive him around for 3-4 weeks for his US tour until he ditched me in Texas to go hang out with a girl in California). I was able to meet a few folks from the way old boards and some cool band members. Got to stay at a house in Berkeley for like 4 days with Ryan Harvey and Mark Gunnery which was cool. Stayed with Michael Throwaways in Van Nuys. Hung out with some of the folks from Defiance, OH for a day. Some amazing memories that have came flooding back since reading this board!

I still follow some of the bands... mostly No Idea or bands that would play the Fest. Matt Tobey recently released something too that I've been meaning to check out.

Hello all! I doubt any of you remember me from the old PIX days but I was a long time lurker/poster (although I didn't post often). In case I need proof, jer and becca met at Fest 7. Or was it 6?  And remember that one dude that took kylewilliam's song and claimed it as his own?

I have lots of fond memories of the board, PIX (and PIX Fest), the Fest, and localish shows. I was kind of in a weird spot... I lived in a remote town in Eastern Washington and had no one to talk to about music. The closest shows for me were 3 hours away in Seattle or Spokane. To this day I don't think I have any friends that listen to the likes of Paul Baribeau or Matty Pop Chart although some like Kimya Dawson because of Juno. The board was a nice place to discover some great music that I still listen to regularly. I went to a total of 6 Fests but haven't been in like 3 years I think? God I love it there but I'm too old and poor that anymore. :/

Anyways, I know this place is pretty much dead but I'm glad I found it. It was nice to get a little nostalgic and look at some threads.

P.S. I'm total out of the loop and had no idea about the whole Chris Clavin thing!

P.P.S. I recognize jer, becca, lindsey, brett (AnnaKarina), kw (are you still making music? I sure hope so!) but I think some others have changed usernames? Is Ian still around? Vagroaches? The Asian dude from Austin with the badass lightning bug in a jar tattoo? Nate Rainey? Tague?
