DTFH Fest Highlights

A quick, illustrated list of the highlights of DTFH fest for me.

Sour Boy, Bitter Girl played really early on Friday, which means alot of people missed them, shame that,

Old Flings, Death to False Hope Fest, Motorco Garage, Durham NC, 06/29/12

Old Flings + blistering garage heat = really great set.

Pink Flag, Death to False Hope Fest, Motorco, Durham NC, 06/29/12

Pink Flag. It’d been a minute since the last time I saw Pink Flag, great to see them again.

The Sky We Scrape, Death to False Hope Fest, Motorco Garage, Durham NC, 06/30/12

The Sky We Scrape early on Saturday.

Fake Boys (not only was the music good, there is something about the light/dark contrasts in this photo that I’m really proud to have captured)

Mixtapes, Death to False Hope Fest, Motorco, Durham NC, 06/30/12

Mixtapes. Last year they played a packed show in the Garage as part of DTFH Fest, great to see them move up to Showroom stage, and totally own it.

Magic Mike, always

Red Collar, Death to False Hope Fest, Motorco, Durham NC, 06/30/12

Red Collar, perfect closer, one of the better sets I’ve seen them play.

See you all next DTFH Fest.

DTFH Fest Friday, June 29 Preview

The real beauty of DTFH Fest this year is that you don’t have to miss a single minute of music, as a band ends on the Garage stage, another will start in the Showroom, and so on. Local folks, if you are still wavering on buying tickets, I’ll say that the $15 ticket price gets you in both nights and the local bands alone are worth that price: Red Collar, Pink Flag, Eno Mountain Boys, Almost People, Ascetic Parade. That right there would be a killer long night. On top of the stellar local lineup there are 21 out-of-town bands playing. The whole two days will be loud, and hot, and a ton of fun.

I’ve been lucky to see many of the bands playing this weekend before, so here’s a visual preview of many of the Friday night bands.
