  3. I am from some other less cool area with mid-fi gear and I won't support these gangstas!

    I think it's time that we talk about a date and a place to have a third coast meet up. Our gear is far superior to the other posers on SBAF so we really should show off.

    It would be great to do something in the first quarter. Are there any obvious dates to think about, or rule out?

    As for location, I know that MuppetFace and I are pretty close here in Houston, but I don't want to rule out other locations that make more sense.

    I'm happy to start organizing things or I am happy to assist anyone else that may want to lead the way.

    So, third coast gangstas! Put your hands up in the air!

    Well... it looks like I am the only one down here in the area... Seems like it's going to be a VERY mini meet!

    Why the Third Coast... Isn't it the Wall Coast these days?

    Just playing off some previous banter we had on SBAF... call it whatever you like.

    You should hold the meet at Frenchy's fried chicken

    See, that's the kind of proactive thinking that can make a meet awesome!

    I'm in the Houston area as well. My gear isn't that exciting, but I'd be happy to bring it anyway and meet other members.

    Bring it, don't bring it, it's all good. Just want to get some like minded Super Best Friends together to hang out, listen to great music, and check out some gear.

    I'd like to make it but getting down to H-town from Waco these days with all I've got going on just probably wouldn't be in the cards for me.

    If we find more folks are out of the direct Houston area we could pick a spot that makes more sense...
    I'm always looking for excuses to get out of this town! :)

    Wow, I thought we had more folks in the general area... maybe that was back in the Chang gang days.

    Maybe Austin would be a better location to get folks together? Darned Texas, no matter where you go it's a long way to get there!

    I'm in H-Town too. Ship knows this, but I felt it was my duty to pimp this thread a bit like we pimp our rides: with candy paint, window rattling bass, and AC units that cycle kush filled air. This thread is moving slooooow. But y'know what? That's how we roll.

    I may or may not be able to make it, but either way there's gonna be some wicked gear. And the best part? No audiophile grampa music allowed.

    So bring some Jolly Ranchers and your bad self, and listen to exotic shit like:

    ~> Super unicorn modded Jades that are more linear than anything Stax has ever made.
    ~> The new 21st century Jecklin Floats that just might end up floatin' yer boat.
    ~> Headphones from the 70s that cost $100 on the 'Bay but are modded to sound better than most headphones today.

    Also meet some of the most attractive people in this hobby! *** You'll be like "goddamn, I thought headphone peeps were supposed to be geeks."


    ***Make sure to wear baggy clothes to hide your inevitable arousal.

    While I live up in Dallas, I do have some family down in Houston. Definitely don't try to schedule anything for my benefit, but it you do get something together with some lead time, I might be able to make it. I'd try to bring things I've got that don't overlap with what others are bringing though; the amount of stuff I packed for a HF meet in Austin a few years back was kinda ridiculous...

    I've overdone it for several meets in the past. Worst was probably the London meets because I had to drag everything into the city. I'll probably try to keep it to a rig or two if this comes together.

    Still just seeing if we get enough interest to reach critical mass. If not, I'll just grab a plane ticket to the next Bay Area meet and crash on @CEE TEE's couch.
