The 2011 edition of Free Press Summerfest has come and gone, leaving only memories, ringing ears and the remaining particles of dirt under our fingernails that just wont seem to disappear. Houston came together for a hotter-than-hell two day party featuring a slew of both national and local acts on 8 stages throughout Eleanor Tinsley Park right under the shadow of the city’s skyline.

Saturday hosted a main stage that featured headliners Weezer, on top of a dance card that featured Cut Copy, Chromeo, Yeasayer, The Black Angels, Hayes Carll and Robert Ellis among others. On the other 7 stages, both local and regional acts lit up stages in the blistering 100 degree heat.

The 2011 edition of Free Press Summerfest has come and gone, leaving only memories, ringing ears and the remaining particles of dirt under our fingernails that just wont seem to disappear. Houston came together for a hotter-than-hell two day party featuring a slew of both national and local acts on 8 stages throughout Eleanor Tinsley Park right under the shadow of the city’s skyline.

Saturday hosted a main stage that featured headliners Ween, as well as quite the diverse mix of acts in Beirut, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Big Boi, Bun B and Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears. On the other 7 stages, both local and regional acts brought the heat (literally) with standout sets from the gamut of them.

Summerfest Re-Cap Video

2:29 pm by

The fine folks at Free Press Houston and Funwunce Supergroup put together a pretty awesome re-cap of the 2011 edition of Free Press Summerfest which took place last weekend in downtown Houston. This video shows quite a bit of the events, and does a great job at capturing the spirit of the festival. I’m working on putting my photos from Summerfest up, but while you wait for those, check out the official re-cap video.


Makes me long for more. Seriously. I can’t wait for 2012.

When thinking about going to see a three-piece band out of Sweden you might not expect the show to have much energy, or the band to have much of a presence on stage.   But I would have to tell you you were wrong.  Peter Bjorn and John graced Dallas at Granada Theater on Thursday and it was a fun, frolicsome, and all-around fantastic show.  There was jumping, dancing, clapping, fist-pumping, crowd-surfing -walking, and plenty of sweating.  Read the rest of the review after the jump.
