The fact that they’re playing this many dates in May leads me to believe that my original prediction of a MASSIVE tour this year should be correct. I CAN ONLY HOPE SO.
So, I know that sombreros and solar shields may not be the most fashion conscious festival decision, but goddamn did they save the day last year.
Not having to worry about the sun at all was awesome, especially considering that I burn after about 6 minutes in the sun. So, before you head to the Woodlands this summer consider grabbing a sombrero and old people sunglasses at your local thrift store.
Holy shit. This is the best picture ever.
OH FUCK YES.
Ok, this is MisterWives and they’re awesome. This song is so fantastically catchy and perfect for festivals. It sounds like it belongs in the 80’s but with an awesome twist of Indie Hipster Pop.
The song is called “Imagination Infatuation” and you can stream their Reflections EP on soundcloud by clicking the link: here.
I definitely think that these guys are going to put on a phenomenal show, so see if you can’t find time in your busy planning to make it a point to see them.
Me and my buddy started a new blog, Fuck Yeah Firefly Festival to give anyone interested in or attending the Firefly Music Festival information on new artists and awesome bands to check out this summer, and for years to come. Come check it out!
