Fare thee Well

Sunday is finally here after Saturday’s bitter cold rain. A majority of my time was spent inside my tent or the Vibe tent. There is a top layer of slop for about 6 inches on every trail in here but spirits are still high. The more serious of the wookie’s are still rolling with a no shoe policy, which isn’t for the faint of heart.

 

I was able to catch The Werks on the Campfire stage that brought in a crowd of about 200 people despite the conditions. Around five-thirty I went to the vibe tent to sit down and warm up. It started raining and being stuck there, we waited for the Dopapod show from 5:30 till 8:00 p.m. They did the job and the crowd wanted more so they came back out for a ten-minute encore.

 

The real experience came later in the Red Barn when STS9, Big Gigantic, Griz, and Gramatik took the stage. The collaboration started off dirty when STS9 brought Dominick Lalli up on stage to jam for the set which was absolutely beautiful. Then Griz, Gramatik, and Big Gigantic hit the stage bringing filthy bass music with jamming overtones of the saxaphone. They did a very unique version of Thrift Shop and I Need a Dolla again but with more variation.

 

Today I am looking onward to the Avett Brothers, Trey Anastasio, Future Rock, and Moe’s last show for Summer Camp.  I will also be interviewing DJ Solo and shooting at all of those shows so be sure to check them out! Thanks Summer Camp for another legit year that bad weather can’t ruin.
