Maple Stave, Fullsteam, DTFH Fest, Durham NC, 1/21/11, originally uploaded by Ash Crowe.
First things first, there is still one more day of this to go. It’s $5 if you just want to go to the Fullsteam (mostly locals) stage. $15 gets you into all 3 stages. If you don’t have plans today (or even if you do) come out and rock. The Motorco Garage stage starts at 1, everything will be rolling by 2. Eat breakfast, rock, you can run errands tomorrow.
Now then, what a joy yesterday was. The way the sets alternated, I spent very little time not listening to music. Instead it was perfectly easy to bounce from stage to stage and back again, music at every turn. Just a solidly good time.
- The Riot Before – excellent to see them again playing to a great crowd
- Temperance League
- HMNTF winning over the guys from Arliss Nancy and Arliss Nancy joining all the local fans in dancing along
- Greenland is Melting rocking the punk crowd with an upright bass & banjo
- Maple Stave decided to overcome the vocal PA issues at Fullsteam by blasting through a ripping set of their instrumental tracks
