Live: Waynestock @ The Liberty, 3.17.11

[nggallery id=14 template=carousel images=30]

“If you book them, they will come,” a great man once said. And indeed, though a couple of the busier groups cut it close, seven of my favorite bands made it to Waynestock — my first-ever unofficial day party at you-know-where, a collaboration with the thoroughly rad TwentyFourBit. I’m too emotionally attached to give this one a proper review, so I’ll offer a full round of thank-you’s: to LA Font, Scott Bartenhagen, Little Scream, Ravens & Chimes, Pepper Rabbit, ARMS and Sondre Lerche for playing and gracing us with so many great new songs; to the Liberty and Transmission Entertainment for having us; to Traci Larson for the sweet poster; and to Etnies, thinkThin and Origami Vinyl for their generous sponsorship. Enjoy the photos and look for a full SXSW 2011 recap later today. See you next year.
