Insert cliche Grateful Dead lyric here

It was cold, and Zack and I were worn out, but we were determined to make it through to the end of Phil & Friends. We were able to catch bits and pieces as we were making our last posts from the festival during the first set. “Uncle John’s Band” floated through the night air as we wrote about all the great music of Sunday, and chatted up the security guard at the media tent.

We walked up to the Everglades Stage just as the band launched into “Franklin’s Tower” to close the first set. The set break was filled with a hilariously redundant public service announcement about jam bands who want people to register to vote. It was super long, pretty funny and couldn’t have worked that well, because Zack and I can’t remember the name of the organization.
The second set opened with a killer “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider.” A great cover of Dylan’s “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” really showcased how great Jackie Greene was on both guitar and vocals. Steve Molitz, of Particle, even seemed to fit right in to this impressive line up of Phil’s friends. An encore of “Casey Jones” sent the Langerado crowd out with a bang as Zack and I scrambled for warmer clothes.

    The “hilariously redundant public service announcement about jambands who want people to register to vote” is HeadCount. They’ve been around since 2004. Check out http://www.headcount.org

    Thanks for adding that. I also wanted to add that we thought the PSA was funny because it was so long and all of the artists were saying the same thing. We at Festival Crashers believe that they are a well intentioned organization, and hope that they succeed in their goals.
