Friday evening was the East End music festival here in Rochester. Five or six stages on East Ave and surrounding streets. Luckily the weather cooperated. The nice thing about the festival is that it focuses on local bands. Good stage opportunity for these musicians and good opportunity for the audience to be exposed to all kinds of musical experiences in one evening.
Such as a middle aged male white band playing Grateful Dead songs and Bob Marley, a band playing Foo Fighters and similar music with a lot of conviction, country music, a punk band, and my favorite: an 80-ies glam band complete with the big hair. All this and more for you to admire in the gallery.
I didn’t stay the whole night but for the coupe of hours I was there: not a single female on stage, all dudes. Another thing I noticed was the number of police and security that were around. Still, had a lot of fun and most of the bands I quite liked.
