What were the Deer Tick shows like? Any Middle Brother? Any surprises?
The Deer Tick shows were out of f*cking control. I went to Friday and Saturday. Saturday, Middle Brother into some Deervana was ridiculous. Wish there would have been more Middle Brother but what are you gonna do?
I didn't take many pictures this weekend, and few came out well since I only used my phone.
Amy Helm in the Museum Stage. First show I saw on Saturday, and it was amazing. The stage is so intimate, and the sound resonates through the whole space
Sara Lee Guthrie and her husband, Johnny Irion.
Arlo Guthrie, story telling as always
Setlist from the Guthrie Family Reunion show. I asked a soundguy for one, and he told me no, so I started walking away toward the side of the stage to see if I could see Arlo, and Sara Lee yells to me "Hey! Have this, I know you want it" and threw me the set. I was in the front row (aside from photographers for the first 3 songs), and I think she may have seen how much I was into the whole show. This was my all time favorite moment of the whole festival.

I really wanted to get in to the museum stage early saturday to see the graverobbers but i was stuck in traffic longer than usual cause of two accidents on the bridge. I did get to see them busking just inside the quad and i sat right next to them and meet them before iron and wine they were very nice. Thanks for posting the picture of the inside of the museum katy i was wondering what it looked like just never ventured in.
Random question, but has anyone seen any of the sets (aside from the ones on NPR's page) up for download anywhere? I was under the mistaken impression that they would archive all of them...so I didn't set anything up to record...and now I'm upset that they don't have Iron & Wine, Sharon Van Etten, Of Monsters & Men, or Gary Clark Jr.
I assumed they'd be archiving them all as well. They may still be adding some as Gary Clark Jr. was up there today and I didn't see it there yesterday. Hmm....looking now it seems it's only 28 minutes long (his set was definitely longer then that) and it's streaming but not for download.
On the positive side...this youtube user has been uploading all the video webcasts he recorded for the weekend. So far he's got MMJ, The Head and the Heart, Alabama Shakes, and Of Monsters & Men. I sent him a message asking if he had others and he said he would be posting the Iron & Wine, Conor Oberst, and Deer Tick as well. You can download those videos and make audio out of that if there aren't any "freezes" or anything from the videos.
Thanks for that YouTube link! It was nice to see the Of Monsters and Men show from a different angle. I still want to see YouTube footage of the huge crowd of kids (teens/20-somethings?) dancing at the L side of the tent. They had boundless, infectious energy!
Gibran & I watched them as they frolicked barefoot with a huge pile of shoes in their midst. He got some pics but I don't think either of us filmed it as it was happening. They were so much fun to watch that it almost felt like an intrusion to film it, ya know? Finally I said "screw it" and got a :30 snippet at the end of a song, but it didn't capture the full joy. Oh, the carefree, unbridled enthusiasm of youth...it was something to behold.

Reminds me of an episode of Portlandia I recently watched where the bohemian played by Fred Armisen gives up the things he loves because someone he considers lame is doing them. He ultimately becomes the guy he thought was lame and vice versa. This really has nothing to do with Juggs opinon of youth, it just reminds me of that sketch.
^ Hey now! I resemble both remarks! I think working on a college campus has improved my tolerance of youth; however, it will never be fully eradicated.
In re: the overwhelming collective stupidity of the next generation (who seem to lose their marbles immediately upon HS graduation), I can only say this: there is nothing new under the sun. And thank god eye rolls are silent, or I'd have been fired by now.
