Periodically, Reglar Wiglar Magazine asks a band, artist or musician: What’s it all about? What's the point and why go on? This week we ask Wasted Plains Organizer, Yes Club Records Director, Chrome Attic Manager and the Santah singer/slinger, Stanton McConnell:
What's It All About?
The festival is all about bringing a fully jam-packed day of revelry and quality music to an unorthodox location: the parking lot and confines of the Woodstock VFW.
What's the Point?
We're celebrating Midwestern Rock 'n' Roll. We want the whole community and all the festival goers to be inspired by the music. We'd like everybody to make some new friends, too.
Why Go On?
We'd like to take this year's vibe and extend it to a full weekend affair someday. And throughout the year, we'll continue to throw great events in anticipation of the next Wasted Plains.
