Treasure Island Day Two

Here's what you've been waiting for! The rest of the Treasure Island photos. Before I get to the bands, check out the new bay bridge. It looks like it is half done already! I am just in awe of bridge construction in general, and the bay bridge in particular. How do people do it?

So, here's the music from day two (emphasis on indie rock). M. Ward. Good, mellow singer songwriter. I really like him.

I believe his high school music teacher plays guitar in his band (at least that is what I have been told and I choose to believe it cause I think that is awesome).
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (my second favorite rock album of the last two years, right behind The Arcade Fire).

This super cute baby girl was dancing onstage the whole time they played. I assume she was the daughter of one of them.
Built To Spill. Still good, after all these years.

Modest Mouse. I have not seen this band since 1995, the year they played in my living room and got us all evicted. They are super famous now and boy do they know it. They did a sound check and then kept the audience waiting for a half hour before they started playing. I had just drunk a beer and was stuck in the photo pit about to pee my pants the whole time. Then they would only let us shoot for one and a half songs with no flash (it was dark by now). I really hated them by the time I got out of the pit, but I have to admit that they are still a good band. And they have Johnny Marr (one of the original members of The Smiths) in the band now, so that is pretty rad.

Here's just some photos of the grounds and the people.

Man, that was a lot of photos to sort through!
