The 3rd somewhat almost I sure wish it was annual Shrimpfest* is right around the bend and this one promises to be the shrimpin’est yet.
Off road, off grid, off radar, and off the hizzuki, we venture down into the magical granite canyon for hours of soul love music and a big freaky campout.
This event, like the river itself, is free and open to the secretive public, but is not publicly advertised.
These acts will be shrimping:
Grace T • Bear Dyken • The Ginger Ninjas
Bodhi Busick • Catherine Scholz • Moss
SHAKE YOUR PEACE! • Fossil Fool
The Bata Drum crew
And more surprises…

No thunder drumming please. Violators will be forcefed bacon and bonbons. Pack it in Pack it out, this means poop, too.
*hopefully, no actual shrimp will be consumed at shrimpfest, nor will any blowup shrimp appear. Shrimping, shrimp, to shrimp, shrimped, shrimpers, etc, are all bastardizations of the English language committed by the Afro-Parisian language manipulator Borrina Mapaka, and can be understood to generally mean super cool, except when used in the negative, which we aren’t here.
