Photos from Restoration Fest

Bennett sent us some photos from Rest Fest, which plowed ahead this weekend in the face of Hurricane Irene while practically every other event in the Capital Region was cancelled. Organizers, bands and the audience all seemed to have a great time, even though there was a mad rush to pump water out of the building on Sunday morning. But the music was great, and it was the one place to go to get out of the house (if you could get there).

Andrew has some excellent photos up too, looking forward to seeing more.

Related to Andrew's photos: did Deer Tick's John McCauley really launch a loogie in the air and catch it?

Also: Bryan Thomas has video from our set.

And Harith has a really on The Rev Recs blog.

To all who came out on Saturday, thank you.

To all who braved Sunday, thank you for being a part of something very special.

Great photos as always, Bennett! and great blog post by Harith!

I was very negative about the road diet when it was announced but I really love it and am excited to see it continue all the way to Lark. I eat my words!
