American Aquarium at the amphitheater. That glow? They’re being lit up by the fireworks in front of them, which went off fifteen minutes into their set. This was not great planning on the part of the organizers, but it worked out fine. It’s just a crying shame you can’t see how great BJ’s red, white and blue cowboy shirt is in this photo. It was worth coming out, just for that. (The show was pretty great, too.)
Good old American rock and roll is about as American as it gets. It hasn’t been a great week for democracy in these parts, but I’m still grateful to be here. Happy Fourth, friends.
