I must say first, the music is very good.
They're running things a little bit differently this year. Normally I'd be hearing the clanging of hollow aluminum tubes. I guess that'll be tomorrow. Things started off slowly then built up over the day. People kept pouring in from all directions. Music stages are set up at a couple parking lots within a block area and inside a few clubs on Broadway.
It rained. People scattered to the edges then came right back out to the center of things high and dry unfazed.
Music is heard for blocks around very loudly all day. The bands play through past nightfall ending around 10:00. People are cleaning up outside now.
Would you like to see a lot of pictures of people? They all have interest in music in common.
"Sign a petition to raise minimum wage?"
"Interested in signing a petition for sensible gun legislation?"
(Come for the music stay for the politics innit.)
"Hello, I'm working to secure right to die with dignity. Would you like to ..."
"I"m here for the music not politics." (Lie, I'm here for the pictures)"THAT'S OKAY, I'M JUST TRYING TO HELP!"
