I've got tons of video and pictures from this weekend's StinkFest 2009, but it's going to take me awhile to upload it all. Please have patience -- I'll get to it all eventually, I promise.
Also, I have a point-and-shoot digital camera without a powerful lens. My photos are pretty bad. So J.P. Stephens from the band Lunch Money whose camera (and eye) are much better than mine has given his permission to use his photos. All photos here are his, and if you want to see more of his work, visit him at Lumos Studio.
At some point during the KindieFest (StinkFest 2009) set of Key Wilde & Mr. Clarke, a longtime reader of the site came up to me and said, "I know you kept telling me about these guys, but I never really paid attention. Now I get it -- they're great!" As someone who's been singing the praises of the band for more than a couple years, I was happy to hear they'd secured themselves a new fan. Now, with their debut Rise and Shine! ready to be the latest Little Monster Records release (hopefully in July), it's time for more folks to join in.
So, yeah, the duo, given the extra muscle of a bassist and drummer, rocked. One of my favorite tracks from the very beginning, "Rattling Can," has been given a punk-bluegrass sheen. And it's totally awesome.
