Rilo Kiley is in the house, er, park. Had to pick up their More Adventurous CD after hearing them at the fesitval. Sounds extremely good on my new PolkAudio surround system. There will be little sleep around here for a while.

Buddy Guy, being the wise man that he is, stayed away from the front of the stage and out of the sun for much of his set. He did venture out occasionally, but his music came thru no matter where he was.

Robert Earl Keen. One of the poorer of the recordings that I’ll be posting, but not all that dreadful considering the recording conditions and equipment. Besides, he played early in the day so there was room to get close to the stage and snag a couple decent pics.

Lucinda Williams drops by Righteously this time. Recorded from a distance as I headed to the stage after catching part of Robert Earl Keen.

This one is Lyle Lovett and his Large Band. The whole festival wasn’t as mellow as the songs I’m posting. It’s just that the only ones that recorded even halfway decently were the quietest ones. The volume was just too much for my iRiver to handle. That was even with it in its case upside down covering the mic and then stuffed inside my camera bag to help deaden the sound. Do they make earplugs for iRivers?

So far I’ve been unable to salvage anything from Jet, Steve Earle, Oasis and Death Cab for Cutie. But there’s more Lyle, Lucinda Williams, Rilo Kiley, Franz Fernando, Robert Earl Keen, Buddy Guy, and possibly Coldplay to come.
