The Sasha Rider

So today I was working at the local non-profit who is putting on the music festival this weekend (!!!) and an issue came up with our headliner's rider.

You know, the list of things bands need when they play. Like here.

We were under the impression that all riders had been X's out and sent back to the artists. However, this didn't happen with this particular band so we were working on what we could come up with off their list without breaking the bank.

30 towels, a bottle of Ketel One Vodka, various kegs of beer, certain food, etc. Crazy stuff.

But really not so crazy.

I mean, these people are away from home, and it's not like they have time or transportation to go to the grocery store before they play their set.

And even I have a rider (for when I go stay with my parents):
  • 1 can of cold Coke per day, in fridge
  • 1 package of frozen Pepperidge Farm Apple Turnovers
  • bottle of Advil that is findable in their kitchen
  • funny stories about my childhood
  • magazines I don't subscribe to
  • some type of alcoholic beverage, possibly a bucket of frozen margaritas
  • general snacky food, some chocolate, some salty

Angry Husband was a manager for a retail store once. They were having an appearance from Ashley Simpson. OMG, you should have seen her list. I had to go out and buy everything. The list had $200 worth of items on there.

I think my rider would have to include Fiber one, sugar free vanilla caramel coffee mate (with coffee of course), and frozen grapes. Random, but they are 3 things I have to have everyday!

You did a fantastic job getting the fest together yesterday. It was a fun time! The Polyphonic Spree was A-Mazing, too bad I was too tired to N-Joy it as much as I could have.

Hope the ankle-off at the run went well, can't wait to hear of it!

I lurve this blog about the Sasha Rider. I'm going to have to think what goes on the Mamalicious Rider. It def includes internet access.
