The 2nd annual Free Press Summerfest has come and gone, leaving a fulfilled feeling throughout our fair city of Houston. As an avid festival attendee, who has traveled the globe in search of different musical experiences, it was a very nice change of pace to have such a great event right in my back yard. Despite some intense heat, and even more intense rain and mud, I still managed to have one of the best weekends I’ve had in some time. The Flaming Lips were the prize performers of the weekend, but the festival also included standout showings from national acts like Lucero, Stars, Ra Ra Riot, Mix Master Mike and Medeski, Martin & Wood as well as local fair from Buxton, listen!listen!, Eastern Sea, B L A C K I E, Grandfather Child and Elaine Greer among many others.
While I was busy running around taking pictures for the Houston Press, I still managed to also take quite a few for myself over the course of the two day festy. Check out my shots from the Sunday, June 6th after the jump!
