Eleven Days. One man with a musical obsession and poor impulse control. Ooh, Friday. But today, everything was in place. Favorite bands at the fest, and we went down a little early to catch a band Bad Decisions - Various - Awesome Fest 4 the Rebel Stage, the Roving Scallywags. Somewhat predictably, the stage was behind schedule and we had to leave to get good seats for the next band, on an adjacent stage. But at the Rebel Stage, were some friends who knew that they were Bad Decisions - Various - Awesome Fest 4 to find me there.
They are smart friends! So we all wen over to the next stage, and got front row seats for Something To Do. They looked snappy in their tradition ska two-tone clothing, and the horn players were peppy.
In fact, I could never get a picture of them all jumping around, because they were moving to fast for me to get my phone out…. More friends showed up during the show, and we all pop-ska rocked the afternoon way. Later, after a pitstop, we hung out at the merch tent chatting with the band. Next up they will do a nice long set at Bastille Dayswhere they become French. I, of course, as the only resident of the city proper, was in firm favor of the streetcar, while the guys who lived in the suburbs thought it was a waste of money.
Who could have predicted that? After a bit of this, we rolled back to the Rebel Stage where a pirate-punk-Irish band called Brave the Sea was scheduled. Of course, the stage was still running way behind, so the other guys who had more of a drive home, headed out after hugs and kisses.
We hung for Brave The Sea and they turned in Carryin Coal - Prescott - Lakeside Sessions energetic, if shortened, set of punky Irish sea chanty-shouty ….
We were looking forward to Whiskey of the Damned, of course. It seems like everybody else was, too:. The sound was awful. By mid-show, the sound had improved to barely tolerable. We had seen them play better AND louder, and we knew we would see them again somewhere; best not to taint the good with a one-time bad performance. SummerfestBlog Eleven Days.
