2015 Shaky Knees Music Festival

You've probably read recaps and reviews all week about the plethora of performances that went down at Shaky Knees and/or Shaky Knees-related late shows this year — who played on what stage when, and whether or not they sucked. Maybe you were even one of the thousands of folks who paid at least 100 bucks to be there and experienced it all yourself. Or maybe not.

One thing's for sure, I was there. These are things me and my iPhone saw:

A couple approaches to beer vending could be observed. Danny, for example, went with a semi-stone cold killah strategy:

Kason went in another direction:

It was freakin' hot, though. Hydration was pretty important.

Luckily, there was an air-conditioned media tent.

Others had to rely on every inch of precious shade available...

... and King of Pops to stay cool.

The food truck lines, on the other hand, were nuts.

I caught some music, too. See, the Pixies:

And here are the Strokes, obviously.

This was my view of the Dead Milkmen at the Masquerade. And some actual coverage of this show elsewhere on Crib Notes.
