Since I promised I would give more updates on forecastle since I didn’t have pictures, I thought I would put together some lists. This one will be the best shows that I saw. Now don’t yell at me if I missed someone, there were bands I didn’t get to see and also I intend this to be the most exciting shows I saw, not the best musicians. I also am leaving off the three headliners. Who were your favorites!??
5. Trampled by Turtles
4. Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings (She killed it and was so energetic! One year cancer free!)
3. Gary Clark Jr (Played with soul and was just amazing.)
2. Twenty One Pilots (I wasn’t a big fan before I saw them, but being before Outkast, I watched them to get a good spot. And boy am I glad I did. They played with as much or more energy than anyone I have ever seen. They said they were going to give the crowd everything they had, and they certainly didn’t disappoint.)
1. Reignwolf (I know most missed this band due to nickle creek playing, but to me they absolutely stole the festival. From going into the crowd, to the main guy playing a whole song by himself. That included him playing the guitar with one hand and drumming with the other. I think they will be big soon)
