Swerve Fest: Live from the Field Pt. 2

So, Beautiful Losers makes me feel like I need to go home and make some damn art. Felt longer than it’s 81 minutes, but that might be because it started 30 minutes late. Hopefully that won’t screw up the timing on the other films. As for outside the theater, the stage setup is super awesome. Big stage, plenty of space to get your nasty funk on. I’m not really here for the music, but if I were I’d be pretty psyched. A couple of suggestions:

  • If you want a shirt, hit the line for silkscreening by Hit + Run first. It’s easily the longest and has been all day.
  • The line for sharpie tattoos from Jesse Spears is surprisingly short, so make sure you take advantage of it. She’s fun.
  • The line for the photobooth by The Seventh Letter is almost non-existant. Take advantage of that too because it’s also silly and fun and you’ll walk away with a free souvenir.
  • The food’s just okay, and the line is long. You might think about eating before you head out if you’re really hungry. They are selling beer and wine in another area.

Overall, though, the crowd’s not that bad, and the weather couldn’t have been better. Hopefully it will hold up for tomorrow, because I’ve been told the secret show is not to be missed.

  1. since it’s up on the swervefest homepage, it’s probably alright to mention that the secret band is st. vincent. should be a good time tomorrow. saturday was much less crowded than i’d anticipated.
