Free Press Summer Fest 2016: Thoughts and Photos

FPSF 2016 Rundown, Pt. 1: Mac Miller + White Denim + Matt and Kim + Father John Misty + Walker Lukens + Thee Oh Sees + ILL Faded + Sir the Baptist + Preservation Hall Jazz Band + Big Gigantic

And now, with less than a week to go before Free Press Summer Festival 2016 hits, here we are with our annual bunch of randomly-ordered writeups of as many of the 66 or so bands/musicians playing as we can pack in over the course of the next several days.

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Matt and Kim + Oberhofer + Burned Out 3 + SoundMass + Krewella (Video!) + More

Oh, yes. Into the weekend now, starting with tonight, Friday, October 19th, and there’s a truly impressive pile of things going on, all at the same time. Here goes…
