FLAG @ Riot Fest - Byers CO, 2013-09-22

Loud Fast Rules!!  Right on the heels of Public Enemy on the next stage over FLAG tore into it.  Super Loud!!!  Also right as a weather front was blowing in.  The wind picked up almost right away and blew one of the side banners hanging from the stage loose.  The crew scrambled to lower the speakers and secure everything from the approaching storm while the band played on.  20 minutes in or so they cut power to the PA and emergency weather announcements started to be heard.

Then we were told to evacuate the site.  It appeared that a storm with 1" hail, strong wind, rain, and lightning was headed out way.  It turned out that the worst of it mostly missed the farm.  We just got rained on and wind blown.  After 2+ hours the reopened the site and all the scheduled bands still played.  Mostly in a downpour the later it got.

The combination of the volume from the stage and the uptic in the wind take a toll on the quality of this recording.  Vocals are clear though.  It is what it is.  Warts and all.  Enjoy.
