Well the night didn't start out too good, rain and drizzle and we arrived at Havana to find Tropidelic wasn't there but the next band was setting up for 9. Off we go, heading to Below Zero, I really didn't want to walk that far in the rain, but I had forgotten abut the Scions, awesome, they were all lined up at Fountain Square.
And not running yet.
Great on the way to Below Zero my mood was as dark as the rainy night, I was hoping this wasn't setting the tone for the whole event.
Low and behold Light In August lit up September and Below Zero. This folksy band reset my mood and changed the course of the whole evening for me.
I hope all these bands know how this works, Light started at 8:30, at 9, half the audience got up and left to catch whatever band it was they wanted to see next, felt kind of bad for them.
Next stop Madonna's were we ran into a group of peeps and made some new friends. The Rattlesnakin Daddies were running late so we only caught one song before heading out. I hope they get this ironed out, Two bands missed now, and heading for Mainstay and one stop from home.
Mainstay was much better, Loudmouth was just finishing up and Halo Stereo started right on schedule. The first song was heavy, but they mellowed out a little and I really enjoyed their set.
The rain last night held the crowds down I think, but the next two nights are gonna be hopping, get to the MPMF website and pick your bands and get down here.
In addition, you can follow my exploits on twitter.
And don't forget, Saturday night MTV will be on Fountain Square filming a performance of "Taking the Stage"
This wasn't the best night ever for me, the next two nights should be much better blogging wise.[where: 45202]
