Pygmalion Music Festival 2009

The Antlers perform at the Canopy Club on Friday evening, the third day of the Pygmalion Music Festival

Last weekend I went to the Pygmalion Music Festival which is held every year in Urbana, Illinois. The festival was four days long, but I was only there for the weekend shows. Still, I caught some amazing stuff. On another note, I have started photographing (and maybe writing) for the Indiana Daily Student’s music blog, The Live Buzz. That’s how I got the press hookup for the festival. Hopefully I can help them cover more of the great shows that go on in Bloomington, since it is tough for me to do it all myself. They have some great writers and I look forward to doing more work for them. You can check out Katie’s post about the festival and my slideshow (since free wordpress won’t let me embed slideshows on here). The Antlers and Iron & Wine were the highlights of the weekend for me. Here are some of the pictures I took, and the rest are up on my Flickr.
