+ Denim all day errday. Canadian tuxedos and cut-offs galore.
+ Many babies running around with those massive Princess Leia headphones
+ Guthries Guthries Everywhere
+ Matt Vasquez showing up wherever Dawes or Deer Tick are playing and either standing on things (pianos) or belting out things (namely the chorus of “When My Time Comes”)
+ Surprises guaranteed as far as sit-ins/cameos, as all the band’s are either friends or fans of each other. Faves today included Apache Relay/Ben Sollee, the Dawes/Deer Tick/Matt Vasquez love fest, Taylor Goldsmith supporting Jonny Corndawg on guitar and Conor Oberst/First Aid Kit & Brittany Howard/My Morning Jacket, even though I missed those last two.
+ John McCauley’s gold tooth
+ I mean really
+ Moms and elementary school art teachers DANCING THE SHIT OUT OF PATTY GRIFFIN SONGS
+ Jeff Tweedy’s guitars. Dear lord.
More or less.
