You got us all on the edge of our seats!
Lookin' forward to seeing what it is for sure, but I'm guessing some kind of festival?

Looks like it will be a pretty big deal.
And a festival in my own back yard to boot. Good place to have it - but Iowa weather at that time of year is either hot and sticky or absolutely beautiful. Crap shoot.
How many more festivals can go on before it implodes?

I hope the Rock Festivals keep happening but no way can I travel up to Iowa (good for mid-westerners though). I'll be lucky if I make Rocklahoma next year on that note as well with it being 12 hours away and having to renew my tickets SO FAR in advance, yet again. I'm so tired of these festivals wanting our money b/f the Main Headliners are announced. This festival won't be seeing any of my money, that's for sure, however I do hope it's successful.

Wow! That would be awesome! I live in Minnesota, and I was always wishing we'd get something closer to here. Oklahoma & Texas are just a little too far for me to drive to and too expensive to fly to.

got chills at the thought of a Saigon Kick reunion! AMAZING band (possible "week of" candidate?)

Is the Saigon Kick actually going to include Matt Kramer though, or is it just Jason Bieler w/ a new line-up? There has been major bad blood between Matt & Jason for years, so it's hard to believe they'd work together again, even for a one-off. Money heals a lot of things, even if only briefly, but they are not going to command the kind of $$ that a band like VH does to bring them back together.

I like the last couple, w/ Jason singing, but the first two w/ Matt are the classic SK.

It'll also be interesting to see who ends up on bass and drums, since there is not much love lost w/ Jason there either.
