Out of the tent, fed, coffeed-to-the-gills, and loaded for bear. Saturday’s lineup lead to a LOT of difficult decisions, but also highlighted one of the best things about living on the east coast - the constant influx of great bands in our area ensures that if you miss someone performing at Firefly, there’s a good chance they’ve either recently played in the DMV area, or will play at a venue in D.C./Baltimore/Philly within the next month or two. So Game On:
On the Road with Chunky Glasses: Firefly Music Festival
Dover, Delaware 7/20 - 7/22
Part Two: Saturday, July 21st
11:15 -11:45 a.m. Moon Taxi
Everything was off to a good start with 80-degree temperatures and Nashville’s Moon Taxi. Known as much for live jam-rich performances as for anything on their two albums, MT did a great job warming up the crowd with driving, super-catchy songs like “Hypnus.” While they were jamming the hell out a song at 11:24 in the morning, four guys in front of us were getting completely baked. Oh yeah, festival life.
