Anton Jackson over at VultureHound gives the best recap of Gonerfest so far. A series of highlights of the fuzzed out, eclectic, and desperate, American and Australian garage rock scene. Nots, Chook Race, Pity, Trampoline Team, Giorgio Murderer, and so many more it’s really hard to keep up.

Anton highlights the camaraderie that takes place in Memphis during those three days. I’d like to do the same. There is a genuine feeling of love and appreciation throughout the fest. One of the things Zac Ives says during the Opening Ceremonies is ‘Take care of each other!’ It’s true! How many times did I see a passed out Japanese festival-goer during the shows and leaned in to offer assistance only to be told to go away because they are sleeping! I guess the music is just so good it touches everybody in the same way.


Near the end, Anton mentions meeting someone from Montreal, Canada. That person is me! You see, I really exist. I’m not just a Nots internet promotional bot!
