Are we the only ones who are unable to have another human being put a band around our wrist without it getting stuck on our skin/arm-hair? What do y'all do? Should we just shaved our arms before festivals? Oh well.
Oaktopia round 2 was this past weekend. A mostly younger crowd came out in droves ready to see a set of mostly-local bands play throughout most Denton festivals. There were a few hiccups (Neon Indian's DJ set got moved to Saturday) as there are with any large festival, but there was also a heck of a lot of fun. We had a bunch of coverage of the event last week (did you check out our interview with Will Wiesenfeld of Baths yet?). Yesterday, the Observer posted a much-contested review of the festival which even brought along a response post from another blog (#BlogFight). Internet drama can be fun to read through. Especially when it involves local music. That said, we had a good time at the festival this weekend and are looking forward to Oaktopia round 3 (and hoping to hear an announcement that it will happen sometime soon).
Below are a few photos of the event from Will Milne, Danielle Longueville, and a bunch of #WDDI's from y'all. If you're still jonesin' for more pics at the end, then click on over to the Observer here to see some pics from our buddy Ed Steele.
