Re: Rootpile - Bluegrass Music Themecamp

Thanks for the positive thoughts yall, we don't have official placement yet, but when we do I will let you know our address. We're building a giant rolling banjo stage trailer pulled by a whiskey barrel and bombarding the playa with Bluegrass that way too, so we don't be too hard to miss!!
