A snippet of the piece I wrote about the Love Valley Rock Festival for The Believer’s music issue is online—right here—and of course I’m unreasonably excited about it. The full story is in the magazine, which should be out soon, or I guess is out now if your local bookmonger restocks magazines on a Sunday. The image above (which I first saw here while researching) is from the festival’s program and no one I talked to for the story could remember who drew it or printed it or where it came from, which seemed pretty apt. Here are photos a UPI stringer shot at the festival and posted online a couple years ago; this one, where the crowd recedes all the way up the hill until they’re just tiny bits against the sky and the treeline, is my favorite. It was such an enormous, beautiful mess and it was so fun to write about.
