    Lightning in a bottle, maybe more like drain cleaner in her heroin. Shame.

      Probably not the drug of choice for a RAVE event there copperhead.

      Please be better informed when attempting tasteless humor at the expense of the dead next time around. I thought you had better skills.

    You just can’t protect people from themselves. I’m sure the band didn’t provide the drugs or the alcohol. Why penalize everyone for the bad choice of the few?

    I know I sound like an old man but this event is not a good thing. The stories I’ve heard would bring me to shut it down.

      Likely the upcoming lawsuit may just do that, or at least cause the organizers to go bankrupt and then start up again under a new name and location and maybe better prepared.

        Funny, I hear the same thing about San Luis Obispo county. The heroin, the booze, the parties. This is the “burning man” of the CC.
