Pointfest 2014 @ Verizon Wireless } 05.10.14

AFI @ Pointfest 2014The latest iteration of Pointfest definitely drew a lot ton of mixed reactions, but you can lump me into the group that applauded the station’s effort to try and create a different offering than Pointfests of recent years. Going from oddly crowd-surf inducing indie pop of The Head and the Heart to the killer punk energy of AFI to colorful exuberance of Neon Trees, the lineup was all over the place, but hopefully one where you looked forward to just as many bands as you were introduced to for the first time. The folks over at Speakers in Code were generous enough to send me out to gather shots of the festival and we’ll post some of the highlights here. Maybe if I’m feeling generous, I’ll post a few individual band sets in the upcoming weeks.
