• Martin Martini and the Bone Palace Orchestra: worth the price of admission and single-handedly redeemed the festival in my eyes.  Awesome musical talent combined with complete insanity.
  • The Grand Vue Hotel: beautifully preserved old pub and hotel, with towering ceilings and one of the coolest courtyards I’ve seen.


  • All the other acts I caught: All very professional, extremely well rehearsed and executed pretty much to perfection.  Shame their music was so freaking boring and cheesy.  Still, there were hundreds of drunk underage kids going off, so it looked like they were connecting with their core audience.  There were probably other good artists playing on the weekend, I must have just missed them.
