A friend took me to THE COOLEST event ever last weekend!! Mumford & Sons‘ Gentlemen of the Road. This really cool traveling music festival’s 4th and last stop was at the Monterey Country Fairgrounds Saturday August 25th and I got tickets ^^
The Monterey Country Faigrounds were an amazing venue!
All the bands (there were ~7) kept reminding us that Jimi Hendrix played there!
Aside from the food/beer, getting our passports stamped and, of course, the bands, there was also a sweet mix of people with eclectic style — let’s just say I did some people watching O=]
The guys really got the best out of the Fairgrounds — they used one of the areas to showcase local banjo makers and musicians ^^
One of the coolest things at GOTR: there were 6 or so hamacs for people to chill in!Mumford has some really cool designers — they had a really laid-back, old America style deco throughout the place…Haim was by far one of the coolest bands I’ve ever seen play live! And the blonde has such great stage presence! It’s too bad I didn’t take a video of some of her funny ramblings =]
The Apache Relay seemed like one of the most popular bands! Gotta admit the lead singer is yummy O=]
This was the funnest band at GOTR!! Their style was like Romanian folk music meets rock and their crazy antics were so entertaining!! =D
Last but not least, Mumford finally came on around 9.
The lights for the show were just gorgeous =]
Had to snap a few more pix of the fairground son my out O=]
