Between being sick this past week and some crazy (exciting) job opportunities that have flipped my life upside down, I’ve finally stopped my head from spinning long enough to recap our exuberant fifth anniversary show last weekend at Glasslands. If you were in attendance you experienced the awesomeness first hand, if you weren’t then I am sad for you because it truly was a rockin’ good time. The place was sold-out packed, the beer was cold, and the bands were even better than expected. Young guns Dreamers of the Ghetto really turned some heads, Arms and Guards reminded everyone how great an organic rock band can sound, and Caveman collectively blew my mind – a really impressive young group I’ll be sharing more of soon. The dual headlining power of A Place To Bury Strangers and Beach Fossils gave the bill a booming ying/yang of face-melting guitar shredding and lo-fi jangly goodness.
More IGIF shows are in the works, until then scroll through the photos and relive the fun or see what you missed after the jump.
Aside from the green spotlight shining on every lead singer making them look like an extra-terrestrial, the show couldn’t have been better. Turning five years old never sounded so good.
