so we won’t even try.

“Thanks to everyone who made Dude Locker III a success. ALL the bands were amazing. So many people came out this year. Zero fights. Zero trouble. Just full respect shown by a boat load of people who just want to enjoy a great day with great music and are able to police themselves. Once again Columbus, OH represents itself to the fullest!” ~Lo-Pan

Special thanks to Joel Archibald, Jesse Bartz, and all the local and traveling bands that put together a phenomenal show!!  Craig Kaufman and Mia Hupp for their help setting up the live stream!  And to everyone that came out and had a great time while supporting such an amazing group of local and traveling musicians – we hope to see you back soon!

Happy Birthday, Joel!

Dude Locker Christmas Album – update

November 27, 2010 § Leave a comment

We hope everyone has had a most excellent Thanksgiving!  We are so grateful for all the creative minds and kind souls that come through the warehouse every day!  We have really enjoyed watching the warehouse evolve over the past three years and love that we have so much to look forward to!

For instance, there have been a lot of bands showing interest in being featured on our first (hopefully annual) christmas album.  Only a few songs have been submitted and they have been originals (awesome!) so all traditional songs are still open.  We would like to minimize the number of  repeats, so if you have something specific planned let us know.  We will update the song list here.  Our ultimate goal is to have fun with this project.   We would to create something  shows off all of the unique styles that make this place great!

If this is your first time reading about this, submissions can be emailed to dudelocker@mail.com by December 5th.  Please include your band name and website, song title, and how many members are in your band.  We will do our best to get a copy to everyone that participates!

Also, we are open to submissions for artwork for the cover.  If you have ideas or want to submit something feel free to email us.

We are looking forward to having this album under our christmas tree!!

edited to add:  A few bands have asked if submissions need to be Christmas songs.  No, they do not.  All songs are welcome.   We would like to have an album that encourages people to check out the wide range of talent that hangs out here.  It’s your album, make it what you want!!

2nd to last show in 2010!!
