Things To Do In San Diego: March 18-19, 2015

I try to keep this a positive space and try not to vent too often, but I am finding that I have a very low tolerance for stupidity. I'm in the middle of booking the festival and I have 12-14 slots to fill, depending on how long of set times I want to dole out, and I had to send out rejection emails to about 60 bands this week. It pains me, because many of them are friends and many of them are bands I enjoy seeing live, but I have to put on the festival goggles and look through the lens of a daytime, family friendly event, with people from newborn to great grandparents strolling through North Park on a hot day. So everyone is mostly cool when I send my generic rejection. No hard feelings. Except for one stupid band who didn't even fill out the form correctly with a link to their music (one very simple requirement on the form), and this shithead sends me a nasty entitled email about how we must not have listened to them because if we had then they wouldn't be rejected. Well, sorry Carlos, but if you're too stupid to fill out my form correctly, then I can only assume you're too stupid to show up on time, line check on time, and get off stage on time to keep my festival moving. And now that I know what an entitled dick you are, I will be happy to pass along my insight to every booker in town.
