Even though yesterday was a super long day that started out really poorly, with Jeremy having a gun in his face and getting robbed, we managed to pull off an amazingly nice end to the day.
While we were waiting for the show to start, Kayla Dean got the neighborhood kids excited about capture the flag. She grabbed some flags (red and black, duh). We went to the vacant lot across the street and played a bunch of rounds of capture the flag with about 12 kids. They were silly and we were silly. It was awesome and we are looking forward to more games with the kids.
After we all ran around for a bit, we were on the front porch waiting for bands to tune up, when one kid ran up and told us he was worried the cops were going to harrass us. We were confused and said, no the cops aren’t harrassing us. Then he managed to spit out that he was worried about the cops harrassing us because they were harrassing someone down the street. Copwatch is a lot easier with smart kids around. So we hightailed it down Barton to make sure the cops didn’t rough up someone they were arresting.
Then it was show time! Some of our great friends had come over, but the crowd was small. I believe the general consensus among Wingnuts was, Their Loss! Cause all the bands were freaking AMAZING. Stefan Fink went on first, then Wood Spider, and then The Armadillos. They were all such amazing musicians! We were smiling and singing along late into the night. All the performers were extremely animated and entertaining. They also had some awesome art, zines, and home screened patches for sale.
It was a really good fucking night. The Wingnut is extremely grateful for our supportive neighbors and our supportive new friends from out of town. If you missed it, sorry, but we are here for the long haul, so check us out some other time.
