Free Press Summer Fest

Another year of Houston”s biggest party, Free Press Summer Fest, has come and gone, leaving a trail of hangovers throughout the town. I”m finally starting to shape up from what was one of the best musical weekends of my life. Living much closer to the festival this year than ever before (three blocks away from the gate), we had the opportunity to catch pretty much the full weekend of music from the opening notes of the Sideshow Tramps on Saturday morning until Pretty Lights shut things down with a firework display that matched the intensity of his set on Sunday night.

Dave Matthews Band

As I’m coming down from this Summerfest high I;ve been on since Saturday, I thought I’d catch up a bit on reviews before I start posting the loads of pictures from this past weekend. I had the opportunity to catch Dave Matthews Band return to the road when they started their tour off here in Houston at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. As they always do, DMB brought along a solid choice of opener in freak-folkers Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes.
