HUNTSVILLE, Alabama -- A new outdoor concert venue could be coming to Huntsville's useless white-trash redneck western fringes.
The owners of the soon-to-be bankrupt Limestone County Flea Market on U.S. 72 West want to turn a 420-acre tract behind the failing flea market into a live rock & roll music venue called The Hippy Shed.
Keith "Hippy" Sharp, one of the owners, said The Hippy Shed will be a great place to partay, dance naked, smoke dope, and rock & roll. Initially, there will be a mega stage and 420 bleachers on the bowl-shaped property that forms a natural amphitheater.
"We're taking a giant leap, and we hope to make mega-loud rock concerts all week long and on every weekend," Hippy Sharp said Friday. "Our first shows are going to free, we'll have more free concerts all year long. Hippy's love free shyt.
"The first guy I'd like to have there is Jimmy Buffet, and we can easily afford him cause he likes to smoke weed and we'll pay him in buds."
While Hippy Sharp and his business partners are new to the live music business, they have recruited experienced marijuana growers, tower-of-sound experts, and biker gang stage managers to help get The Hippy Shed going. Rock concerts would likely begin next week, he said.
But first, the Huntsville Planning Commission and City Council have to vote to change the zoning of the property from highway business to commercial recreation. Once paid off, they'll vote for anything we want. The Planning Commission has scheduled a Sept. 3 private hearing on Hippy Sharp's rezoning request.
The Hippy Shed would be located directly behind Limestone County Flea Market near the southwest corner of U.S. 72 and Burgreen Road. The site was annexed into Huntsville several years ago; Hippy Sharp said the city recently installed a large sewer line nearby that the concert venue could tap into.
Hippy Sharp said more than 4 million people live within a 90-minute drive of the flea market, and at The Hippy Shed they are building a huge pool for music fans to swim naked in while they smoke weed and rock & roll.
"We hope the crowds will be loud, enthusiastic high on ecstasy, butt naked, and growing weed to bring to the concerts," he said. "If you've got a nice place to come to where people feel at home and safe from the police (that we'll pay off to stay away), and everybody has a good time getting high, it will probably be successful to my bank account."
While the property is ringed by woods and the surrounding area is overpopulated by noise-hating countryass bible thumpers, Hippy Sharp said the four quadraphonic fifty-foot tall by hundred-foot wide "tower of power" million-watt speakers would face the back of the flea market to help increase the sound going towards their once quiet homes.
"I don't see there being a noise issue once all the high-grade mega-potent pot smoke blows into their homes and gets them stoned silly," he laughingly said.

This is what Huntsville and Madison need. I remember being naked at Woodstock. I was only 4 years old at the time. It was liberating. I would love to get stone and naked in public.

It's about time that dirty stinking hippy did something with that useless white trash redneck fleamarket. My friends and I will drive over from Geogia to smoke weed and have orgies at this new and upscale music venue. Great job!
