The humidity returned. Record high temperatures were recorded. There was nowhere to hide. It was hot. I guess we have to move the fest back another month?
Day three was pretty chill for me. Plenty of fun shooting to do, though. Going into the fest, Sunday was all about Idles. Instead, I experienced several gems hiding around that powerhouse performance. From mellow to nostalgic to charming, Sunday’s photos include Otis The Destroyer, Thomas Csorba, Faye Webster, Idles, Banks, Third Eye Blind, Kacey Musgraves and a shot of the biggest crowd ever for side stage performance. No, I did not shoot Lizzo as after I checked out TEB and Kacey, the crowd waiting for Lizzo was so huge that making it through before the pit closed was not looking possible without a jet pack. It was crazy.
Out of the ashes of two great bands, come two new great bands. And perhaps it wasn’t even ashes, but a change in direction, which has brought us A. Sinclair (frmly Frank Smith) and Otis the Destoryer (frmly the Couch). Both bands will be releasing EPs tonight over at the Mohawk, which is a definite reason to show your face. A. Sinclair are offering up their Pretty Girls EP, and Otis the Destroyer are offering us the Dark Arts EP. We consider both bands to be two of the top acts in town, though admittedly that list is growing and growing. Plus, because you have to have great openers, the bands have chosen Chasca and the Docs to open the night up. You should definitely stop by this evening…there isn’t a better option out there. The show starts at 10 inside, right after the Red Fang show.
