Park Street Festival 2009

coupla-dorksThis was how I spent my Saturday night, hanging out on Park Street for the annual festival. What a blast!

About a two block section of the city is closed off for this affair, with a decent sized stage set up at the corner of Park & Spruce streets.  I’d estimate 10 to 20,000 folks showed up to eat, drink and enjoy the line-up of bands.

The wife and I meandered into the thick of it after having some of the best sushi I’ve ever had at Tyfoon (we’ll definitely be back!) & then deciding to check out all the hub-bub.

The first band we saw play was Dot Dot Dot out of Chicago.  Horrible name, pretty good pop oriented rock band boasting two hot gals on guitar & bass.  The band switched off instruments every couple of songs so every member got a spotlight.  They played a lot of ‘dance’ tunes but did cover some  Whitesnake & Black Sabbath.  For this type of festival, they were a perfect fit.  Plus the ladies made me want to volunteer to be a roadie!  Or love slave.

Later, we hung out with my buddy Rubio (pictured to the right) and acquired some nifty light-up devil horns (courtesy of Red Devil energy drink).  Something about seeing the entire patio of Gaswerks lit up with devil horns had me all nostalgic for Halloween.

We had to leave just as headliners Candlebox were taking the stage but I couldn’t help but notice their first song suffered from a really bad sound mix.  Hope that got cleared up for the rest of the set.

Had a great time, will make this festival a ‘must do’ every year moving forward.
