Wormtown Productions kicked off the 2010 festy season right with the 8th annual Strange Creek Campout in Greenfield, Mass. last month.
Strange Creek, along with its partner in crime Wormtown Festival, act as bookmarks to the festy season, with one beginning in May and the other ending in September.
I’m sure you all remember Buntology’s adventure at Wormtown last year, and this year’s Strange Creek was just as awesome. The campground and faces of this intimate and affordable festival is so familiar to the Bunty staff that it’s become more like a family vacation than hippie retreat.
Shout-outs to Phaze from DPR (Danny Pease & the Regulators), the Alchemystics, Chelsy Lau (Sauce / Fungus Amungus vocalist) and King Cantor (Goosepimp) for their friendliness and Buntological support!
Also, stay tuned next week for a lil’ video recapping the weekend!
Remember when I saw 2/3rds of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs play a show last week not 35 minutes from my house?
I remember- and it was awesome! Karen O and Nick Zinner performed an acoustic set under the moniker the “Yeah Yeahs” and were able to tug my heartstrings yet rock my world at the same time. Despite the lack of electric guitar, a raucous crowd and an even more raucous singer, this was one of the most captivating shows I’ve seen in a long time.
Kind of ironic considering frontwoman O is known for her wild stage presence (seen here) and basically acts like a f*cking wild woman when she performs. Yet onstage at the Colonial she admitted to being “really nervous” and acted kind of timid and unsure of herself. Clearly, rolling around and making pelvic thrusts onstage is more her comfort zone than singing to a quiet theatre with only string instruments to hide you. Oh yea, and her dad was in the audience.
