I mentioned earlier this week that I was absolutely pleased with the North Park Festival of Arts. Though I had to get up earlier than I'm used to, the day was fun and the May Gray kept the day bearable. It was my first go at stage production and though I thought I'd be stressed out, when you have great bands that show up on time, an amazing sound man Sean, a great MC like Tim Pyles, and the help from a couple off duty SDPD officers helping out with our loading area parking, the day went incredibly smooth. From the opening set by The Elephant Project all the way to the final notes from Wirepony, and the sets by Trouble In The Wind, Martian Horses, Josh Damigo and Republic of Letters in between, I couldn't have asked for a better day. Thanks to all the participating bands, to all the people who came to the festival, and to my family for bringing my nieces to hang out for the afternoon.
