Summer Fest pics

Back, from the Free Press Summer Fest, and i'm drained. The wife's drained. Even the dog's drained. So much so, that she threw up on the carpet this morning. And i thought i drank alot. All in all, it was a pretty eventful little festival...and damn hot. The Flaming Lips and Girl Talk put on shows that were fun as hell (even if the Houston crowd was a bit lethargic), Saviours were great, i saw a cool little band called Caddywhompus (who remind me of No Age), I got to see hundreds of white people bobbing their white heads to Bun B and Slim Thug, we got rained on and had to traipse through the mud (for the fourth music festival i've attended in a row), and did i mention i drank alot of beer. Hooray!

The mud looked kind of fun at first. There was a big hill that served as a natural amphitheatre, and the mud peeps were using it as a giant slide...until the man shut it all down. And by "the man," i mean the 23 year old kid with big, checkered earrings and the Prince Valiant haircut, and his side muscle, the 5 foot 2 chick. They busted some heads. They busted some heads indeed.

Anyway, if you can handle the Houston summer heat, check this one out. It's a hell of a mix. Indie rock, hip-hop, electronica, heavy metal, and punk rock all at the same park! The hell i say!
Here's some pics.

Some of my festival going buddies and me.
