A great big THANK YOU to everyone who made it out this past weekend for Transfigurations. It was a magical time, from the moment Floating Action took the stage with the opening spot to the closing of the festival with Akron/Family blowing the roof off of the Grey Eagle. We could not have been more happy with the crowd of people that came out to enjoy the weekend's tunes, the incredible bands that played amazing sets all weekend long and last, but absolutely not least, the volunteers/sponsors/friends/family that supported us, helped us, and kept us going, leading up to and all throughout the festival. What a pleasure it was to be around so many wonderful people for just a few days, closing out this summer, the "best summer ever." Keep the Asheville, NC mountain vibes flowing throughout the year and don't forget about reverb hiking!!!!!
Check out some amazing shots that our photographer Lydia See snagged throughout the weekend here: lydiasee.wordpress.com.
Also, if you didn't get a poster commemorating the weekend's events, you can go over to Andrew Findley's (Subject Matter Studio) website and grab one of those fine limited hand-screened posters, check it out here.
