ATJF 2009: Day Two and Three @ Littlefield

Yes, it was last week, but here are the photos from days two and three of the third annual After the Jump Fest that happened at Littlefield.

There were some amazing performances by some great up-and-coming bands. My particular favorites were the brute and manly Wild Yaks (men playing ridiculously fast guitar-laden music, fueled by aggression, and probably some alcohol), the joyful Drink-up Buttercup (cheery, exuberant ditties peppered with the noisy clashes of garbage cans – would fit very nicely into an Apple commercial), and the daringGet Haunted (folky, bluegrassy sounds with an emphasis on the occult).

Get Haunted
They are kinda dressed like Amish people, or your toothpick chewin’ back-country cousins, but that’s kinda what I like about them.

The adorable Hospitality played day 3. I was in the bar area when I heard some delightful female-fronted music playing. Someone asked me who it was, and I thought it was just the DJ playing a new song… then when I realized that it was actually Hospitality playing from the other room, I was impressed!
