In seven days, Beastie Boys fans who pilgrimage to George, Washington, will begin the most Beastie-filled weekend ever at the Sasquatch Music Festival. Beastie Boys will premiere the songs from their new instrumental album The Mix-Up at a special set on Saturday, as well as perform a hip-hop set on Sunday. In addition, Mix Master Mike will perform a set both days, and Money Mark will perform a set on Sunday. Beastie Boys fans couldn't ask for a more perfect offering!
To begin the weekend right, a group of fans are hosting a party for the Beastie Boys fan community at the festival campgrounds on Friday night (May 25). Join Pootytang, Paulb, Jennygirl, and Miramanee ('tis I) in a celebration of all that is Beastie.
A special feature of the party will be a Beastie Boys impersonation contest. Fans may rap, dress, act, vocally impersonate, or wear a mustache (really anything) like a Beastie Boy to win prizes. The contest will be videotaped for future amusement.
In the following video, Beastie Boys fan Steve-Onpoint provides an example of something that would make you WIN the contest. (Filmed in October 2006, a day before the Beastie Boys show at the Hiro Ballroom in New York)
In the following video, Beastie Boys pet fan Pootytang provides an example of something that would make you NOT WIN the contest. Just kidding, Poots. (Filmed in October 2006, a day before the Beastie Boys show at the Hiro Ballroom in New York)
Something that both videos illustrate is that Beastie Boys fans have a great time when they get together and party. Please come and join the fun at the festival!
