FPSF Day 2 - 6/2/2013

While Chaos reigned in Austin, another festival was happening over in Houston, with the Free Press Summer Festival which was celebrating its fifth year. Day 2 (6/2) featured TV on the Radio, Baroness, Social Distortion, Cat Power, Gogol Bordello, , Austin's UME and lots more and pictures are in this post.

Among the highlights: Houston Mayor Annise Parker stopped by to introduce gospel and soul legend Mavis Staples; and the excited crowd for Matt & Kim broke down the barricade which was later repaired with steel struts. That'll hold 'em.

Pics from day 1 are here, and more from Sunday are below...

BrooklynVegan's Hotel Vegan, located at Austin venues Hotel Vegas & Volstead Lounge, began at noon back on Thursday, 3/15/2012, on three stages in partnership with M For Montreal. One of those stages was the BV Austin stage which you already saw a full set of pictures from. Here are some more from all the stages.

Like on Friday and all four days, we served complimentary HobNob Wines. We also proudly passed out Sailor Jerry drinks.

Special thanks to Supercuts who were giving out free haircuts all day and to our official backline providers Vox, Blackstar and Korg, and thank you to ASCAP, and to NadaMoo for supplying free vegan treats, and to Honest Tea for the tea.
