I wish I could make it to this convention. I will be at a Phish show that weekend with some longtime friends. I'm not a big Phish fan but my friends have been trying to get me to go to a show for about 25 years or so now.

And out of general curiosity, how do surf bands not overlap playing the surf standards at a festival or convention?

We tell most bands to play mostly originals, their own songs

I'm going to write a several posts here, all about parking
for the Convention near the American Legion.

Per the Hollywood Bowl website, their parking lots open 3 hours before their shows.
They have a show on Sunday, July 31 at 7:30 pm
(A-ha with orchestra)

The Hollywood bowl parking lots are not available to us.

I found 2 parking garages nearby.
One is $20 and is 0.6 miles from the legion.
The other is $30 and 0.4 miles from the legion.

I might be able to make this. Does anyone want to split a room? I'm thinking about arriving on the 30th, and leaving on the 1st.

I'm easy to room with -
