As though Nevada’s image were not odd enough

Two alien-oriented events in Lincoln County have emerged from the Facebook event designed to open Area 51 to the public.

Originally started as an online joke, the “plan” to bring so many people to Nevada that the top secret site would be overwhelmed has been threatened away by the Pentagon, but the two music events are going forward. The Lincoln County Commission has approved permits for both “Alienstock” and a second event without a name as yet. The events will be held at Rachel, and a second, private site about 30 minutes west of Rachel.
