Think storytellers and singers. That's Half Baked Goods. They blend good stories with great melodies, harmonies and some deft guitar and banjo. Old-time roots run deep with this band, but don't be surprised if you hear a new take on more modern tunes. Randy Burgess, Ellen Shepard & Jay Voss make up Chicago-based Half Baked Goods. They sing songs that might break your heart, but somehow you'll end up smiling and tapping your toes.

Söndörgo (pronounce Shoendoergoe)

Söndörgo is one of the most active and interesting world music groups in Hungary. They play a style of music that is hugely attractive, but little known and quite different to the traditional, fiddle-led hungarian repertoire. Their aim is to foster and preserve Southern Slavic traditions of the Serbs and Croats as found in various settlements in Hungary. Most of these communities are situated along the Danube, but quite isolated from each other.

The group was founded in 1995 in Szentendre a small Hungarian town near Budapest, with long-established Serbian tradition. The Eredics brothers got acquainted, and started to play music together with (bass player) Attila Buzás during their high-school years. Partly because of family reasons (Kálmán Eredics, the father of the Eredics brothers, was a founder member of the Vujicsics ensemble), all the group members are profoundly touched by, and drawn towards Southern Slav folk music. Söndörgo’s mission is to research it, arrange it and perform it on stage. The current members of the group are: Áron Eredics, Benjamin Eredics, Dávid Eredics, Salamon Eredics and Attila Buzás.

In contrast to most groups playing Balkan music, Söndörgo isn’t playing brass band music, it is a tamburitza band. The tambura is a small and agile plucked instrument similar to the mandolin which is occasionally supplemented by wind instruments and accordion. Söndörgo’s traditional repertoire is made up of material gathered by Béla Bartók and Tihamér Vujicsics as well as learned from old masters of the tradition.

This event will take place in the Schubas parking lot.

These rules are based on a crowdsourced project completed in February, 2014 combined with comprehensive research into the history of the game. Any additional rules or house rules are supported but not enforced during tournament play.

The Beer Die League reserves the right to amend any tournament rules.

+ Beer Die is a gentleman's game.
+ The game of beer die is to be played on a standard sheet of plywood (8’x4’ of at least 1/2’’ thickness) placed on banquet tables, saw horses, or objects of similar heights (must be between 20''-30'') using a standard solo cup (4.75’’ height, 3.75’’ top diameter). The official dice used for play is the standard bicycle die (5/8’’).
+ The game is to be played seated 2 vs. 2.
+ A cup full of water is to be placed 8'' from the back, 5’’ from the side, for each player (hand from back, fist from side).
+ The number 5 must be referred to as bizz, the number 7 must be referred to as buzz.
+ The game is played first to bizz points (win by 2 - cap at buzz).
+ One player from each team will roll the die, the team rolling the highest number will be able to choose either side or first toss.
+ You must tap the die before tossing to signal the impending throw.
+ The die must be thrown in such a manner that the opposing team does not see your palm upon release of the die.
+ The die must go higher than 8’ from the ground. If the opposing team disputes the height, the shot does not count.
+ A point is awarded if the die hits the table and bounces off the defensive (4’) edge of the table without being properly caught.
+ The die must be caught with one hand (juggling is permitted) but must not be trapped between any surface or body part or a point is awarded. Once the die comes in contact with the floor or stops moving, the play is dead and a point is awarded. Leaving the chair to catch the die is permitted. You may not reach over the plane of the table to catch the die.
+ If the die strikes the cup on a toss (plink/body/ting) the die is dead and no points can be awarded.
+ If the die is thrown into the opposing team’s cup (plunk/sink/sploosh) the throwing team is awarded one point and the thrower is permitted to sign the table (each additional plunk/sink/sploosh is awarded a tally under their name).
+ If a team shoots out of turn, the toss is negated and the team loses their next shot.
+ The officially designated god has final say in disputes.
