This misconception here is Doo-Nanny has been free.
They've been charging for the past 3 years, people just haven't been paying and they've been bad about having workers up front to receive payment.
Camping hasn't been free for 3 years and then 2 years ago the art show was free, but the Saturday night party/burning of the Doo-Nanny was $10 or $20. Camping (for the weekend) was like $50.
I imagine it'll be the same this year. They say it costs $ but no one pays. Butch has never really tried to make money from Doo-Nanny but I think him breaking even (the bands get paid, supplies cost $, and him and his crew are always trying to build and add new stuff to the grounds) is the goal which is why I don't think they've ever been good about having "staff" up front to take payment.
"Give 'em enough rope", as The Clash put it.

I knew that Doo-Nanny wasn't free, of course, since they were giving those of us performing "badges" as far back as 2010, but I saw that these anonymous trolls were pretending to have attended Doo-Nanny "last year" and were whining about how "now' there's a "$10 charge", as if a measely ten dollars was even worth the discussion.

Anyway, as we know, Doo-Nanny is great if you enjoy that sort of thing, and like everything we discuss here, it isn't for everyone...

To each his own!

When I went a couple of years ago no one was there to take or charge any admission but again had they asked for $10.00 I would probably of paid it it, but now, knowing the type of entertainment and stuff I would not pay it, it is not worth $10.00.
My suggestion was to maybe do like HogBottom and ask for donations.

I thought when Doo-Nanny started it was something special, now its all about the money it would seem.

At least we agree that Hogbottom is on the right track.

I've never been disappointed with the Saturday night entertainment at Doo-Nanny. I

The Asheville bands that have become a staple that night are entertaining, especially The Mad Tea Party, but 2 years ago when they added Doc Dailey & Magnolia Devil I was extremely happy. He's a Muscle Shoals guy who I've seen open for Patterson Hood (Drive By Truckers) and featured on a VICE documentary about the history of Muscle Shoals. Great band. Check them out. Good band that alone is well worth any $10 admission they ask.

The 1 year I went for the entire weekend and not just Saturday night, I think 3 years ago, there was a blues cigar box guitarist/one man band who was pretty damn good, too.

A bunch of us were actually planning to attend but after the Conley fiasco at the coffee shop I had my reservations.
I think I might trust you if you are for real and not a sockpuppet or one of that mean guy Wills minions.
Can you be trusted Josh Green?

That depends what you're looking for. It's a bunch of hippies in the woods of Alabama burning down a wooden structure that loosely resembles a certain part of the female anatomy. It's BYOB, camping, and can be a lot of fun if that sounds like your cup of tea.

If not, I'd still go and check out the odd folk art and unique crafts during the day.

I wouldn't go strictly for the music, personally, and I never have. I'm not even sure who's playing this year. I won't be there.

If The Conley Brothers were playing, I'd have been somewhere else anyways.

That nails it pretty well, Josh... and for the record, Henry Conley has never played the Doo-Nanny, but I and the Shadowville All-Stars have several times.

Which year did you and our other friend put on the... rather unique... shadowplay in the theatre, that caused the pretentious Atlanta film maker to go ballistic, Josh?

Must have been, what, three years ago already?

Josh, I know your keen ear for new music, have you ever heard Sixto Rodriguez?

Anyone here listen to Rodriguez?

I was browsing in a little record store in Atlanta last night and Rodriguez was playing, the first song snapping pure folk rock at me until I had to ask the counter clerk...

"Who is that man?"

I'm still finding that out and I like what I'm finding. Anyone else?

And I always thought I knew my folk rock.

I see you're in Riverdale, Robin... you have a great store, The Book Nook, there. I stop by that way looking for old books and music every few months or so.

Any good live music venues (including coffeeshops) up that way where folk rockers such as myself and Henry Conley might look for a gig? Obviously your neck of the woods muxt boast some stupendous talent...

I missed that, unfortunately...

It was "I Wonder" that grabbed me immediately... I walked into the shop and headed for the used CD bin, kind of in a hurry as it was late and even though this was Atlanta, the little mom and pop used record and book shops mostly close by 7 or 8pm... I was looking to find a good used copy of the remastered Basement Tapes for me and a friend, scan the Lou Reed and Kinks buns for bargains on the out of print but out of demand CDs, thus low priced...

"I Wonder" was playing, and I was grabbed... I continued flipping through dics but couldn't really think about anything but, who is that?

A really young guy who nailed period piece folk folk almost perfectly but with a modern edge and freshness that made it ring so true?

A really old guy who had somehow escaped my fairly obsessed younger ears?

Turns out I don't know my folk rock quite as well as I'd like to imagine.

For those new here, and asking, here's Josh Green's list of local music that he considers worth keeping an eye out for:

Radiolucent - I'm So Country (Official Video):

Technically they're an Athens band but their bass player, Clint Poe, is from Columbus and a local musician who plays with a couple of bands around town.
They'll also be performing live at The Loft on 2/23 with local band Cedar Creek opening.

Neal Lucas :

Joey Allcorn - Alabama Chain Gang :

Hopefully this post goes through and gives a better representation to all of the talent in this town.
We've been friends for longer than I remember now, and though we may not always agree, his judgement is astute and thought out, and commands my respect and appreciation.

Again...

You must have caught Henry Conley on a bad night, since if nothing else the music should have at least sounded pleasant, as The Conley Brothers are all excellent musicians.

Could be you don't like the Country-Folk genre, Robin?

For the record, a question, what sort of music /do/ you enjoy?

Speaking of Marshall Ruffin... I think I've posted before that he's the new frontman for Flannel Church featuring Duane Trucks (brother of Derek, nephew of Butch) on drums. Check out this video...

Oh, and Marshall will be at The Loft next Friday (Feb. 15th) with his band. Flannel Church will be coming through soon. Marshall also sat in with Cumberland Collective last Friday at The Loft.
