Shaky Knees brought fans out for two days of music in the rain

The persistent downpour did little to dissuade fans from donning their Wellingtons and trekking around in the mud

May 5, 2013 - The inaugural Shaky Knees Music Festival took place this past weekend in the Historic Fourth Ward Park and Masquerade Music Park. With three separate stages and a 28-band lineup that included Band of Horses, the Lumineers, Drive-By Truckers, and Dr. Dog, the persistent downpour did little to dissuade fans from donning their rain parkas and Wellingtons and trekking around in the mud for the two-day event. Food trucks and vendors were on the sidelines as the crowd moved from stage to stage in a well choreographed and perfectly timed transition between musical acts.
