I caught almost twelve hours straight of music last Saturday. It was the annual Hootenanny on Hunter.
The rain threatened on and off all day, but that didn’t stop the crowd that had gathered from dancing.
Nor did it stop the show. Even when, as you can see in the background of the centre of the photo above, the techs, Jeremy and Don, had to use a broom, some muscle and their grace and style, to get the collected water off the tarps while the band was playing.
That’s The Dears up there, keeping it rocking while the rain drizzled down.
But the heavy rain held off and the show proceeded as planned and The Sadies took the stage.
After the street festival, my favourite haunt, The Garnet, opened it’s doors to three lovely bands.
Including Marine Dreams, above, Nick Ferrio and his Feelings (seen on this blog before), and Baby Eagle, pictured below.
What a great summer day of getting my ears filled.
