argh I missed this. Even sent myself a reminder email so I wouldn't forgot (apparently that system needs a rework)
How was it, people that were there?
I concur with lifeliberty and bastardsuperstar that last night was memorable in many ways, and the early sunset was a gentle reminder that Summer is fleeting, and every evening needs to be savored. Andy Shaw Band's Caribbean rhythms were very soothing, great music for a warm Summer night.
Hearing and seeing Lydia Loveless on Bicentennial Stage was a real treat last night. Her beautiful voice and multiple instruments filled the Commons with the new sound system, and everyone looked spectacular on the beautiful stage with shifting light patterns and colors. I was particularly taken by their execution of "Crazy", as everything EVERYTHING was in beautiful sync - vocals, instruments, tempo - what a beautifully orchestrated song. What is that Ben, a cello? The underlying richness from that instrument was sublime, something that needs to be experienced live.
@ Ben/Blammo - I wanted to say "hi", but they had gates all around the stage, and dead center on the grass for some reason. It made it hard to shoot photos! Here's some images for you, DavidF and anyone interested, more here:
^ I love the Ohio state flag here!
