Sunday was a fun day of exploration and legends. The highlight was The Replacements, a band I have loved since I was first introduced to "indie" and "alternative" music and one that has influenced all my favorite bands since. I'll Be You and Alex Chilton still hold up, and at an increasingly EDM festival, those old rockers were a breath of fresh air for this old rock fan. Finally getting to see them live was a wonderful, full-circle kind of thing.
So, that's it. Thanks, friends, for another awesome Basecamp. Three days out in the sun in Austin with good music... can't think of anything better.
Gaslight Anthem brought the Jersey rock.
Jenny Lewis looked adorable and sounded great.
Kongos has some fun songs.
MO was a breakout, high energy Danish pop act.
Real Estate had some nice songs, too.
The Replacements were the legendary rockers I always thought them to be.
Stage before Pearl Jam.
