We are soon going to have a new public message board. The password protected
will be for organizers, scenesters and people cooler than you. We're still cobbling
together the stuff from Libertatia at Pirates Cove. The pix video and tunes
should be up by the end of the week. We also got a small armada of shows coming
up in August, September and October. Including 2 campouts and a Pyrate Discount
Night at Gilman st
Libertatia 2001! Shut Doon!
June 18th 2001,12:34am
was canceled half way through by the man. It took the U.S.Marshalls, The CDF,
The Park Rangers, the BLM, and Sheriffs from two counties to keel haul us though!
It was an utter fuck up as Wednesdaye, Thursdaye and Fridaye were just a wind
up for Satyrdaye and Sundaye. Just look at the bands!
if you doubt our fury! a small Skeleton Crewe remained behind until sunday evening
to clean up ye mess and help with the portable toilets. I will soon post pictures
to prove that we left the cove
cleaner than we found it! If ye would like to share ye experiences at the fest
(or trying to get there and being turned away by the cops!) get ye to the message
board I will soon post a full report of what exactly transpired at Liberatatia
at Pirates Cove, with photos! Now I must sleep, it has been a long journey.
13 days until Libertatia 2001!

Libertatia is immanent. The best Temporary Autonomous Zone of the summer is just around the corner. 70 bands,
exploding puppets, 16mm films, noise, foam sword wars, free camping, swimming, drunken nudity, treasure hunt, food not bombs, workshops and more
Anarchism is not about how destructive and obnoxious you can be. It is about getting along with others so well that government is obsoleted. Live, create, cooperate
The new location is actually better than last years. More shade, a creek, hills and trees, a weird old abandoned bridge and more!
The weather is also not quite as hot as Indian Valley Reservoir is in a valley. If'n ye aint got a ride than get ye to the message
15 days until Libertatia 2001!
May 29th 2001, 1:13am
Even if ye dint read the
message board ye must know that tomorrows meeting will be the last real meeting beforeLibertatia. You can now buy our swag over the internet!
Just go to the Merchandise page. Also. Now this page can now be found, ahem, ...at pyratepunx.com uh, my pyrate cellphone is beeping.
17 days until Libertatia 2001, and it has MOVED!
May 27th 2001, 8:09am
I suppose I should put to rest any rumors what have been circulating on the message board No
Libertatia has not been canceled. Yes it has been moved. It appears that the county of Colusa has passed a resolution prohibiting amplified music or even generators at Lodoga east park reservoir. Not to fret. The Pyrate Punx are a large clan.
We have selected a new location which is actually closer to the Bay Area. The new spot is actually on Bureau of Land Management land. So it is not under the jurisdiction of petty parochial county laws!
The new campground is
Indian Valley Reservoir in Lake county. It is just north of Clearlake and Lakeport. New maps are here
Well if ye haven't asked for the time off of ye job ye may as well quit.Go to the message board if ye need passage to Libertatia.
performers and musicians are welcome to contact booking as we do have some slots left. Shanghaing may be the only option
as we still need help in the areas of sound techs, stage managers and donations! We are woefully underfunded this year! The benefits we have thrown have netted
us only $300. This may be just enough to cover gas for the generator and naught else! Send any donations to Pyrate Punx. pobox 28137, Oakland Ca. 94604 (cash only do you think we could cash a check made out to pyrate punx?) Our last meeting
was rather dismal, with the lowest turnout yet. If ye would like to get involved in this scurvy venture. The next meeting is Wednesday May 23rd in Oakland at Calaveras Grande's port. Close to bart and bus lines.
Message board for castaways and stowaways!
May 10th 2001, 8:51 am
We went and started a message board That way fuckos that need a ride to Libertatia
can hook up with serial killers looking for innocent victims with a large supply of sunblock and insect repellent. Other topics o banter are welcome also.

More detailed Maps to Libertatia have been added. At this point the whole gig is pretty much booked up. Unless
you are a really faomous band with like 8 records. Yes we are talking about you Neurosis. Non-Musical performers still wanted to play between acts and after hours. If you went to Burning Man, dont call us, we'll call you... This ain't no hippy nambla rave shit!
Libertatia 2001 Updates!
