As Robbie and I got out of our car in downtown’s west side parking lot last night, we heard music coming from both the Cow’s outdoor stage and the back deck of The Key. Northfielders who ventured downtown, it turns out, got a real treat from the bands at both outdoor venues—with warm temps, spectacular skies, and later on, a full moon.
Below: a two-minute video clip of The Big Strong Men (Facebook page). The band wowed the audience (wide age range) in ways that I’d not seen in a while in Northfield. Members include:
Ben Greenwald: Guitar/Vocals
Christopher "Philly" Williams: Keyboards/Vocals
Joe Silberschmidt: Drums/Vocals
Jon Camp: Bass
Below: a 30-second video clip of Jacob Mullis and Amy Hager of Fort Wilson Riot (also follow them on Twitter and Facebook). Marie Fischer also has some photos in a post on The Key’s blog where she thanks them “for playing the most incredible drum-free show The Key has ever seen.”
