CREATION OF PEACE FESTIVAL
AUG 30, 2008
As I'm uploading as the festival occurs, I'll just throw some photos here on the page - will put captions or explanations
Let's start with some menu glimpses:
Now, on to other things:
As you can see, things started out quite wet!
With Geoffrey Oryema and his band, we did a short set - so many bands today, they're trying to keep each one down to 20 minutes!
Weather is steadily improving.
Here are a few shots from Adrian Belew, and his Power Trio's show.
And the Crimson members set (a very short one -- two songs.)
Eddie Jobson's first live show in a long time - he was great.
At night, things looked different...
(note the one guard on the left!)
And it got really full - I'd estimate over 100,000 in the crowd.
I got to sit in with Patti Smith and her band.
Then, the inevitable 'ending jam'!
It was much more fun than they usually are -- could be because there were far more musicians than could play.
Or maybe the fireworks. Or just the special nature of the event.
As you'd guess, I grabbed a lot more than one quick photo!
