The day started when Xavie picked me up around noon. We went back to his house where we met his friend Andrew for some tailgate activity. We headed to the amphitheatre and hit a little bit of traffic but nothing too crazy. After getting in, we went straight to the VIP area where my friend let us in to enjoy the $5 beers (they were $12 in the concert area). They also had free snacks, so we loaded up on hot pretzels and popcorn before we realized that we spent a lot of time before actually seeing bands, so I eventually hit the pavement.
I ran into Tim Pyles and we wandered over to see Fishbone. They are always amazing live- tons of energy and legends at what they do.
I had a great time wandering the festival and didn't really stay at any one stage for too long, but I caught NOFX, The Gallows, and a few other bands before the day turned to night. I caught a ride home from George from Uncle Joe's. It was a long day and I'm not sure where I found the energy to head to Beauty Bar after, but that was a great show, too. Anyway, click 'keep on reading' to see the photos, and huge thanks to Xavie, Andrew, George, Tim, and especially O for an amazing day.
