REVISED SCHEDULE : Matador At 21 : The Lost Weekend In Las Vegas, The Palms

September 23rd, 2010 at 10:00 pm by Gerard

First off, if these changes have left anyone disappointed or inconvenienced, we’re truly sorry.  I’ve been watching videos of the guys in the BP commercials all week trying to strike the right tone for this post, and wouldn’t you know it, MY VIDEO CAMERA IS BROKEN.   Bullet dodged.

On the bright side, hey, DEAD MEADOW are playing.    The opening VIP gala is still happening at 4pm Friday in the Hardwood Suite with dj sets by Ted Leo and myself.  Same room becomes a VIP lounge Friday and Saturday nights, plus late night dj action on Friday (James McNew, Dean Bein) and Saturday (Dave Martin, Robby Morris).  Here’s the live entertainment schedule of events.  Much like real life, everything is subject to change.

    are there any non matador secret shows going on?! before the main shows?!

  2. johnnyburma Says:

    Safe travels everyone. It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. AnthonyCMoreno Says:

    Those going to B&S tonight: It’s been announced that they’re taking the stage a half hour early (8:00) in order to try to beat the storm.

  4. face6 Says:

    Yeah, good luck with all your flights east coasters. Good luck to the bands too that need to make the same flights. Hopefully Matador does some shuffling around with the schedule rather than cancel bands if necessary and possible. I’m luckily flying in from San Francisco so will be fine. Leaving house for airport in only 3 hours!

  5. face6 Says:

    And oh yeah, I just finished beer #1 of the weekend. Will be one of many. Peterman, can we fill our flasks in your room after bowling? Just kidding. Kind of. I’m sorry but $8 bud lights can kiss my ass. Will definitely be sporting the cargo pants.

  6. James Says:

    Alright everybody, have yourselves a safe flight. See you in Las Vegas.

  7. JP Says:

    Hey Gerard and Patrick,

    In case the nasty wind and rain delays arrivals from the East Coast until later in the evening Vegas time, will we still be able to pick up our tickets/wristbands for Friday entry?

    Thanks!
    JP

  8. peterman Says:

    face6,

    my room is open to flask filling, tequila shots, high-kick contests, etc etc.

    sincerely,
    peterman

    ps that’s goes for all y’all!

  9. AnthonyCMoreno Says:

    On my way to JFK now. C’mon, 1st class upgrade and free bloody marys!

  10. AnthonyCMoreno Says:

    Got the 1st class upgrade. “Why, yes, I’d love a bloody mary.”. Suck it, coach.

  11. Gerard Says:

    yes

  12. Denton Says:
