Fucking Awesome Fest: Saturday + Recap

Naming something "Fucking Awesome" really sets the thing up on a pedestal. I'm going to have to say that this year's fest was merely awesome. I saw a few things that were fantastic. Marco Polio was, as always, tremendously entertaining. The Satin Peaches are a sight and sound to behold, The Friendly Foes put on a really fun and (sadly) final show. The Screaming Females. I don't even know what to say. Marissa Paternoster is one of the most dynamic performers I've ever seen. I felt compelled, pulled toward the stage just to see her sing and wail on that guitar. Amazing. The Hounds Below do dark rockabilly just right. FAWN are great, I really need to download some of their songs so I can actually hear what they're saying. Illy Mack covered Madonna's "Like A Prayer" and for that I love them. Millions of Brazilians now has Augie. And they played their show on the floor in front of the stage. Therefore none of my pictures came out. Oh well, they blew my face off, so that's good.

Video of Friendly Foes last song EVAR.

Here's my Saturday pictures:
