Rocklahoma: The Prelude

rocklahomalogo.jpgWell, it's finally time.

I leave for Rocklahoma in eight hours. Before that time, I still have to pack and get a few interviews nailed down.

The weather report in Tulsa (where my crew and I will stay) is calling for massive amounts of rain...and possible flooding. The area in and around Seminole county Oklahoma is already flooded. Pryor, host to the grand glam fest, will likely be flooded by the end of the weekend.

It's a little bizarre, thinking that tonight I'll be driving right past the festival grounds. Tough work schedules meant that I'll be missing today's music fun, as the special fourth day was added so late. I'm sad that I'll be missing Lillian Axe and the Gypsy Pistoleros, but hopefully musicians from both bands will stick around and I'll be able to meet them and grab their pictures for this magazine.

I have a pretty ambitious coverage plan. I chose an airport hotel for dedicated and reliable Internet connection so I can post real time. Thanks to the brilliant and all-powerful Hairball John, I have many interviews scheduled which is uber-exciting.

Perhaps best of all, I'll be meeting some friends I've made online. Some of those friends are dedicated posters on Bring Back Glam! others are friends from like-minded boards, like the guys from Mama's Fallen Angels and Metal Sludge.

Now, it's time to pack. I'm very picky about what I take on vacation, and this trip is a little more complicated considering all the technical equipment I need. Still, I'm sure it will all be worth it.

Glam fans, stand by for reports!

I'm highly envious of everyone going to Rocklahoma - if only the organisers could be persuaded to bring it to the UK!

I'll be reading your reports with interest. Since discovering your site I've been making regular stops by on my daily web browsing and very much enjoying it.

The last weather I read said fine for Pyror Sat/Sun, you're saying that's wrong ? Damn.....

It is only suppose to rain today and on Friday morning. There is no forcast for rain on Saturday or Sunday.

Cool - that's what I read, too. I'll be staying in Tulsa, and getting there tomorrow lunchtime, so I should be OK.
