Earlier this year, we took a gamble and bought three day passes to the Bunbury Music Festival – a three-day-long festival that takes place along the Ohio river. It’s walking distance from home, has in/out privileges, and last year got some pretty awesome acts, including Jane’s Addiction and Death Cab for Cutie. This year, we took our gamble before the lineup for the festival was announced, deciding we would use the long weekend for a honeymoon (this was before we decided to go to San Diego), and that gamble paid off.
Between Friday and Sunday, we saw over a dozen different bands. We found new bands to enjoy, learned a few bands we liked on the radio were lackluster live, got a little sunburnt, and had a blast. A small sampling of who we got to see this past weekend included Belle and Sebastian, who played right up until thunderstorms shut their performance down a song early, Tegan and Sara, who are always fabulous live, The National, who had me in tears with their live rendition of “England,” Walk the Moon, Twenty One Pilots, the Mowglis, American Authors, and A Silent Film, all among many, many others. Each performance we saw was full of energy, and though we went home every night exhausted, we had a blast. During the weekend, The Boy’s grandmother passed away, so we went from the last day of the festival – where we had been going non-stop – right into a funeral yesterday, which kept us out late once again. Today, I thought I would share with you some of my favorite pictures from the festival this past weekend, before getting into some domestic arts and how we manage our household later this week. I hope you enjoy!
