The Firecracker 500 is now upon us like some massive alien spacecraft hovering over the city. All that's left for you to do is show up. Get yourself to the Mill in Iowa City and get set for 3 days of gut bucket, mind twisting rock n' roll. This is the real deal. It's the stuff your mom warned you about, so you know it's gonna be a cool time.
You may have already seen in these pages the lowdown on the 80/35 festival. It seems that the Greater Des Moines Music Coalition has decided to serve up a heaping plate of mediocrity. If that's your thing by all means go for it, but if you really crave the big beat then you need to be at the Firecracker 500 in Iowa City this weekend.

So there you go. Show up and be sure to say hi if you see me. If I'm even half way lucid I'll be happy to talk to you.
