Blogging of the Vibes
We're in the middle of the second day of the Gathering of the Vibes in Bridgeport's Seaside Park. Railroad Earth is playing right now, sounding good on Radio Vibes. It's been a lot of work setting up this broadcast, but we've been on the air since yesterday morning. Working with Tiger Rose has been fun. We are in a production tent behind the stage with our own plasma screen to watch the video feed. It was sweltering in there yesterday, but today it was a great place to stay out of the rain. I'm home now, warm and dry.
Wavy Gravy summed it up best this afternoon: "There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing."
Almost everybody is having a good time, although I'm sure you could find a few complainers in the crowd. U-Melt played a great set to kick things off yesterday, and Dark Star Orchestra with Donna Jean sitting in was amazing.
You can hear most of the festival on WPKN all weekend.
Oh yes, the Bridgeport police ride around on Segways.
UPDATE: (7/28/08) I'm not sure why this page is getting so many visits, but I guess it's because we're so close to the Vibes. There's coverage on the Radio Vibes on WPKN blog, and personal observations here on this blog.
