Great photos from LarkFest 2009

Company of Thieves

Company of Thieves' Genevieve Schatz

Excellent weather, interesting performers and a big crowd made for some great LarkFest photos. The pic above is by B -- there are bunch of others in his Flickr photoset.

There are two more great photos -- and some video -- by two other photographers, after the jump.

Rich Orris captured this great shot of Sgt Dunbar and the Hobo Banned during their set on the Washington Ave stage. More LarkFest photos from Rich.

Sebastien took this photo from the top of the Daily Grind building. Here's a slideshow of his LarkFest pics.

Sebastien also shot some video of Moby's performance:

Thanks for links.

BTW, here is Moby short blog entry about LarkFEST ("what a nice surprise...").

The highlight of LarkFEST remains Company of Thieves for me :) She was special. The Burnham Brothers kids had quite the presence too (in a somehow uncomfortable way). Didn't see much of the B3nson gang; accessing the Townsend stage after 3PM got pretty difficult, maybe not the best location.

Moby's blog is funny. Why would someone tell him there would only be 10,000 people when Larkfest always draws, at a minimum, 5x that?

i came out of hiding to attend, and this year's larkfest turned out to be one of the best days i've had in a long time. i agree with company of thieves being the highlight, im glad we wandered over to catch them. :) an all around perfect day...recovering sunday was a different story, however.

Hey, thanks for the link folks! There are also some great photos from no3rdw and Mikey Roach. More shots have been trickling in all over the place, too, it's great to see so many awesome photos online.

I went to one last month. My friend took his oath of citizenship. It is a great ceremony. A local school choir sang. There was a moving speech from one of the new citizens who grew up a refugee and at the age of 21 was finally a citizen of a country for the first time in her life. The League of Women Voters give warm welcomes, flags and voter registration cards to all the new citizens. It gave me such warm fuzzies. Everyone should try to go to one of these if they get the chance.
