This was in my inbox the other night and I just thought that it was odd because: 

  1. I have never ONE day played in the carnival band Spice
  2. I am only on Spice's mailing list to be updated on their current events
  3. The band is rumored to be 'SOLD OUT', so why this desperate attempt to gain registrations?
I'm just saying.  
For those of you who ARE playing is Spice, take advantage, if the Hilton is your intended stay or works out better for you financially.  I, however, am kind of disgusted this year and am still on the fence on even GOING, yes, DCARNIVALBABY may not be even GOING to Trinidad for carnival 2011! Even WITH the return of the stage.  There are just some things I have to put my foot down on, like no intriguing costumes or having played in EVERYTHING already.  *sighs*



  1. OMFG!!! Dcarnivalbaby not going for carnival?!! What???!!

    Girl I thought I alone was sticking. I too am on the fence on carnival 2011. For some reason I'm not over the moon thrilled. But even moreso it's about the money. If I get a cheap flight out of NY, I gone!!!! With that savings, is frontline costume for me. And better with a free band in the works, I'm slowly changing my mind.

    By New Years' I'll know.
