Wow, what a show. Greg Humphreys showed off his Motown voice--surely not a simple feat so early in the morning. Megafaun had the crowd clapping and dancing to their folksy, stripped-down sound--a very pleasant surprise. Billy Bragg was such an inspiration, offering an international take on the possibility of Obama become president. He proclaimed his faith in the real America--those folks who oppose the regressive stance of the current administration in Washington. He jokingly pondered why the emo's were wearing their "sunnies" even though they were watching from the shade. Ivan Howard of the Rosebuds had the not-so-enviable task of following Bragg, but he definitely held his on. Mac and Jim from Superchunk sounded great acoustically--quite a change from their typical amped-up sound. The dB's nailed it from the opening notes of "Big Brown Eyes" through "Amplifier" and "Ask for Jill" and numerous new songs scattered throughout. If the new songs are any indication of what may appear on the next dB's album, they should conquer the world--er, at least Billboard. Two words about Mitch Easter: perfect hair! (And an incredible bassist to boot). The masses demand more. How soon is now?

Thanks Steve.

I put my own review up at, with a couple pics as well. Glad you enjoyed the day, me too.
