The Lonely Forest at the Fremont Fair

It had been a while since I saw The Lonely Forest (see my Lonely Forest blog page or their new demo music page at Virb) perform; fortunately I remedied that problem yesterday by walking down to the Fremont Fair where I met up with my sister and Bekah to catch the trio live once again.

Bekah, Erin, and me. With John and Eric in the background… my giant head blocked Braydn, sorry!

There were worries that they might not be able to perform because John’s keyboard was not functioning (which caused great sorrow), but fortunately they were able to borrow one and off they went. There ended up being a pretty decent crowd there and the last minute change of keyboards didn’t seem to prevent the rock from happening. They have done a really good job with the stuff off Nuclear Winter so I am eagerly awaiting its release.

I will be posting some video clips from the show (as well as one from the quick set at The Vera Project the other night) sometime tomorrow… or Tuesday… I’ll let you know. To see more of the pictures I took, check out my flickr set: The Lonely Forest @ The Fremont Street Fair. I have included a few below that will take you to larger versions.

The Lonely Forest’s youngest fan?
