THE OH HELLOS

I think the last time I saw such a huge ensemble band was Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes! Although they were more of a 13-person band, this was half that – an 8-person band. But it felt like such a party on stage! Everyone was just so into it and having a good time! The fiddle player and the bass player were dancing so hard – it was awesome!

THE ELWINS

The Sheepdogs

The last time I saw THE SHEEPDOGS perform was two years ago!

I remember the first time I asked my friend about them (2 years ago) and she told me “Just look for the band with all the long hair! They’re amazing! I’m most excited to see them!”

Andrew McMahon in the WIlderness w/ Junior Prom and Hunter Hunted

Todays video is the time I went to go see someone who I’ve been wanting to see perform live SINCE THE BEGINNING OF FOREVER (meaning 2003/4)? ANDREW MCMAHON!!!!  aka SOMETHING CORPORATE and JACK’S MANNEQUIN

The opening bands:
Junior Prom: https://www.youtube.com/user/JuniorPromTV
Hunter Hunted: https://www.youtube.com/user/hunterhuntedmusic

Andrew McMahon: https://www.youtube.com/user/AndrewMcMahonVEVO

Both opening bands were awesome! I legit went home and listened and bought all of their music! And, you should go and check them out too!

I ALMOST wished I could’ve taken live photos of the show, but my friends bought me these tickets for my birthday, soooo CAN’T COMPLAIN!  And, I got to see one of the stage managers from Rifflandia Music Festival who was also working the event for UNION EVENTS (who were the promoters of the show) GOOD JOB GETTING THIS ACT! LOVE HIM!
