Greg Loiacono and Tim Bluhm of The Mother Hips play an acoustic set. I believe they performed a total of 3 times on the different stages in 3 days throughout the festival.

I’ve had the pleasure to see the show at White Walls Art Gallery and it was very good. Additional coverage of that event here. To see it outdoors in an environment like this totally adds/lends itself to the performance. I heard a few musicians that were performing on the other stages at the festival stopped by to jam out a bit.

Day 2 ran a bit smoother then Day 1. After the first day of shooting at a music festival, you try to find the easiest way to get where you need to and how to navigate the crowds, etc. This day was a much more involved a busy day then the first day. Festival was more crowded then Day 1. Weather was all over the place as expected. Bonus/highlight of the day was getting to shoot a bit from the side of the Main Stage as Gary Clark Jr. performed.

Stay tuned for Day 3 coverage coming soon.

You can see full photosets of Gary Clark Jr. here, Jurassic 5 here, The Mother Hips here, Yeah Yeah Yeahs here, Young The Giant here, and Nine Inch Nails here.
