We performed early in the day to a huge crowd of lots of new faces. A highlight was Ed’s keyboard stand collapsing during a solo and the keyboard falling al the way down to the ground. He picked it up and kept banging out his solo on his lap as we all tried to keep from laughing the entire rest of the song.
Saw lots of great music the rest of the day. Guy Clark, Kelly Willis, Conor Oberst, Richard Thompson, Carolyn Wonderland, Robert Earl Keen, Jackie Greene Steve Earle, and Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings. As great as all the music we heard was, we missed a ton of good music too. There’s so much of it going on all the time, you gotta make some tough decisions. I think this pic sums it all up nicely.
