Maker Park Radio Block Party (2019)

I was at this, and it was quite an adventure. What was meant as a live outdoor DJ gig from Vince and Reed (Hays, of Reed & Caroline), was altered due to bad weather reports (having the guys stay back in the windowed studio) and they were right to do so. We had a thundercell pass right over during V&R's set, lifting tents and sending them down the block (potential injuries averted, afaik). It wouldn't surprise me if there were a tornado reported nearby; it was that intense. While I know some got video of the worst, Reed and Vince only got a little of the lesser effects and posted them on Twitter. Still, it was a fun gig from what of the set I heard, and pantomiming to them through the window. ;)

Oh, and it seems Vince (or those close) were able to donate multiples of the Erasure 30 vinyl reissues at $10 a pop to the 80s laden vinyl sale bins...not to mention the rare RSD Yazoo Situation 12". I hear tell someone walked away with that and the red vinyl World Beyond both signed by Vince. Quite a coup, I would think.

Sounds like a crazy evening, but still very cool. I can't believe someone spelled Vince's last name wrong on the flyer though! /nitpick!

Agreed!! I've been saying that on Instagram since the first flyer was released -- to deaf ears. An artist of Vince's stature should have his name spelled correctly (as should everyone!)!! :evil:

Well, let's give these folks a bit of a break. It's a non-for-profit enterprise that actually loses more money than comes in. Still, I think they have heard from EVERYONE about this to the point they are probably adding e's to everything now. ;)

And they certainly aren't the first to spell "Clarke" wrong. If I remember correctly, even our beloved Wonderland album has his name spelled "Clark"!

I ran a nonprofit for 12 years and would never ever allow an ad/poster/whatever to get into the public domain with someone's name spelled incorrectly. It's not that tough!!
