Scene from a shuttle van

Bunkhouse, 10:15 p.m.: The Petals exit the stage. Sergio, 21, heads for the giant white USA Hostels passenger van parked behind the Bunkhouse; it’s the festival’s official shuttle. Zero passengers approach. “I drove around twice last night then stopped.” Why? “No one got on.” Why not? “They didn’t advertise it well.” Are there signs on the van that say, “Hey, this is the Neon Reverb shuttle,” so people don’t get into random child-molester vans? “They made some signs last night. Today they got taken down.” How do people know where to go for the shuttle? “I don’t know. I thought they were supposed to make announcements between the bands, but they’re not.”
