Well, that was fun! Thanks so much to all the great bands, venues and friends that were part of this year’s extravaganza.

Then it was off to Iron Road Studios for some surf n’ turf with The Modelos followed by The Deadcats (featuring Kermit’s killer drum solo!) and finally Howard Rix and his Lucky Stars who rocked the house down to the ground in the wee hours of the night.
At it again the next night starting with the psychedelic sounds of The Strange Magic, followed by Victoria’s brilliant Budokan, who turned a lot of heads and ears – then the Psst! surprise guests, the Pointed Sticks! They played an amazing set chock full of surprises to a giddy packed house. And this is only the half-way point! The Sticks were followed by a kick-ass blitz from The Liquor Kings and capped by a shirtless DB Buxton ripping it up solo (the loudest act of the weekend). Wow!
