Dockville- It All Ends In Blood
Again, long time without posting. BUT, I had good reason. I spent most of my days and nights out at Dockville sight building, teaching, playing, DJing, whatever else I felt like doing, and being on a computer was not something I generally felt like doing.
We played with this group of kids for a week. They wrote their own lyrics to a couple songs (one being We Will Rock You...) and then performed for their parents and others on that weekend.
Last Saturday, not this past one, but the one before that, we held a little party out there on hte horn and Terrible Eagle and the Gallantiers played to a small group of people.
The rest of these pics are from the festival proper.
The first couple are of people playing the instruments on the horn. I have to say this, it was amazing to see the reaction of the people. The festival had something like 15,000 people at it and I believe most of them passed through the horn at some point, and I would guess that most of those people beat on something for a couple seconds or minutes, or like the first guy in these, Max, spent most of their festival experience on the horn playing. It was magic to see all these people communicating without words. We gave them the tools and the place, and they gave us the music. Sure, it wasn't always good, but it was always fun.
On Friday night, I DJed on the horn. All of the above pictures are from that experience. Hundreds of people all dancing wildly and letting loose. AMAZING. I had a ball.
Spectrum played in the middle of the afternoon on Saturday and someone stole Pete's hash...
All in all, this has been the most magical experience of the last years of my life. I can not express how grateful I am to everyone who helped and jammed and made this possible. You've all been amazing.
Here are other links that I found in the last days, both from Tim (SPRDFKT)
the sound quality on this is pretty bad, but at the festival, it was really amazing. Thanks Toby.
