A few photos from Saturday night’s Greensboro Fest show at the Blind Tiger. For those of you who missed it this was a bad ass four day celebration of local music and good people here in the ‘Boro. Organized by the very dedicated Kemp Stroble of Tiny Meteors fame, Greensboro Fest featured 28 bands in 4 days at 6 different locations.
All shows were free. Yes, I said free. And you know what happens when there are tons of good bands playing together for free? People come out and hear local music! A whole ton of people, in fact, come out to hear original, locally made music.
This was pure goodness. Bands benefited, local businesses benefited and certainly all of us benefited. Everyone I talked to had a blast and said they would come out again and pay a cover if it were possible to see groups of bands together like this.
Keep it comin’, Greensboro. We loved it and we are grateful to all the bands and venues that took part in this fine example of how and why Greensboro rocks
