B.O.M.B Fest 2011 re-cap (Saturday May 28th)





B.O.M.B Fest 2011 re-cap (Saturday May 28th)

The atmostphere at the BOMB festival was probably one of the more calmer but still high-energy, less-douchebaggy ones (more love, less violence) that I've experienced in a festival atmosphere. Covering two days at the Comcast Center in Hartford, the BOMB festival featured a great varitey of acts from Weezer, to Snoop Dogg to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

One of the great things about the BOMB festival were the featured local acts. I have a suspicion that the venue sold much less tickets then it was counting on. Which is a shame, and this is all on assumption, but they did a really good job collecting and promoting acts regional and national. I was reluctant to go to The Comcast Center. I don't really like the corporate festivals. They seem to be doused in product placement, etc. This is the first time The Comcast Center has hosted a non-profit event -- all the proceeds went to The Hole In The Wall Gang Camp and Connecticut Children's Hospital.

We got there a little late on Saturday, around 4pm, there weren't many people there, but the bands were still giving their all.

 
The first band that really caught our ears was Forget Paris out of Derby, Connecticut who won the crowd with their feirce power-pop melodies. We got a chance to hang out with them backstage, share some mini-Budweisers and chat it up.
