3 p.m Saturday March 29
I got a late start into the gate today and missed what I'm sure was a killer set by Jared and the Mill as well Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers.
Allen Stone is set up and ready to go on the main stage. More to come from MMMF.
4:20 p.m. Saturday March 29
And now a word from THC right before they take the stage. "430 game on" says THC lead singer Cori Rios
Allen Stone laid down the cool funk now The Hourglass Cats are going to heat it up with Latin, reggae and rock and roll.
5:40 p.m. Saturday March 29
The Hourglass Cats had a huge crowd at the local stage. The desert reggae outfit was a six piece at MMMF and their music sounded huge on the festival stage.
As of now THC is the hands down highlight of the Saturday local stage. Immediately after them Dispatch took the main stage.
Dispatch attracted a huge crowd to the main stage and their loyal fan base has been singing along the entire set.
It's another gorgeous day at Margaret T. Hance.
6:45 p.m. Saturday March 29
Dispatch just finished a set that was so loud you could hear the fans screaming from down the block, and I know that because I was down the block at the end at The Firehouse Gallery.The New England jam band brought a healthy dose of Vermont flavor to the fest, and the crowd has been ever green ever since.
Local country songstress Carol Pacey and the Honey Shakers are on right now, and Slightly Stoopid is up next. MMMF has been as good as ever in 2014, both locally and headliner wise. More photos when John and Morganna get them posted. stay with me!
8:30 p.m. Saturday March 29
Carol Pacy did her country thing and held the crowd as best she could but the overwhelming bulk of the crowd came for the Irie tunes of Slightly Stoopid.
The crowd in front of the main stage is the biggest it has been this weekend and everyone is grooving. The smell of weed is thick on the air and Black Bottom Lighters are about to take the stage.
BBL are sharing game time hugs as they prepare to open for the headliner the Disco Biscuits
9:30 p.m. Saturday March 29
Black Bottom Lighters crushed the local stage. Their brand of desert reggae was a huge winner at MMMF.
The Glendale based six piece sounded crisp as possible and front man Ryan Stilwell brought his game to another level.
The Disco Biscuits are on the main stage now and their set is a psychedelic jam for the MMMF record books. They may not have the commercial appeal of The Roots but they definitely have the Jammy futuristic sound this fest needed.
10:10 p.m. Saturday March 29
There has not, not been music playing since The Disco Buiscuits took the stage. There is a thick veil of smoke and fog in the air and twinkling lights fill up the land scape as the dancers and hula hoopers frolic in the dark.
More pics to come.
