1st Annual Rockfest - Not Too Shabby

I will remember this gig not only for the performances, but for the sheer amount of people I ran into that I hadn't seen for years. It was truly ridiculous. So much so, that, by the end of the night, I was sitting in Merry Ann's downtown with a girl that I was friends with when I was eight who just moved back to town with her Danish break-beat-producing/kindergarten-teaching boyfriend. My voice is just starting to recover from the sheer amount of conversation. I also drank a "B to the E" last night on accident. And please, will someone... anyone... pull the plug on "The Rock?" Some douchebag from the Mancow morning show made an appearance and everyone was basically laughing at them.

So... HUM... they were HUM. I dug the Cowboy Monkey show from a few years ago more, but it was fun, for sure. American Minor pulled out a fucking incredible version of the Allman Brother's classic "Whipping Post" and seriously impressed the roadies for Shooter Jennings. It managed to top the story of how they totaled their tour van by driving into a school bus in Delaware. No one was injured, but what a story... they ended up buying a new van there to drive back here for the gig on little to no sleep.

Feel free to comment on your opinion of the show as well.

Thought the first annual Rockfest was great. It was fun to be outside, to be downtown, to have downtown lively, and to have everyone there diggin' the music.
