I know we’ve said it before but I’ll say it again – the lineup at this year’s Shaky Knees fest was incredible. But, as with most festivals, there are always shows you simply aren’t able to make it to. We had a packed schedule during our time in Atlanta, so unfortunately there were several bands we just weren’t able to catch – but the ones that we did catch, well they made it well worth it for me. I’ve been a fan of all three of these bands for some time now, but I fell in love with each all over again this past weekend. Lord Huron with their soothing melodies and eyes full of wanderlust, The Districts with their uncontainable energy, and Portugal. The Man with their get-your-body-moving beats… these three bands were among my festival favorites this year. Check out Lord Huron’s website and Facebook page. I always love taking photos of the crowd from the pit – and it’s an added bonus when you spot a friend :). Check out Portugal. The Man’s website and Facebook.
