Day Three of the May Edition of Boston Calling 2014

When it comes to the winner of this Boston Calling outing, the answer is problematic. See, Saturday ended up (after a rough start) having a much better batch of sets. However, they were all from bands/artists I went in expecting to deliver. Sunday, while technically weaker, packed many more surprises throughout the day. In other words, there's no winner, there's just a lot of great memories.

Biggest surprises on Sunday: Brand New and Bastille stealing the day from the likes of Tegan & Sara and even Modest Mouse. (Honestly, though, Modest Mouse had the weekend in the bag had they put together a better setlist.) Their sets were phenomenal; full of an energy that tore through the crowd like nobody else all weekend (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros sure came close, though.) They didn't deliver my favorite music of the weekend (not even close), but they delivered in an unexpectedly epic manner, and I'm very happy to have had the chance to witness/capture it.

This May edition of the Boston Calling Music Festival set very high bars for future weekends in the plaza, but - already - the September edition (packed with the likes of Lorde, The National, twenty one pilots, Childish Gambino and many, many more) seems up for the challenge. (Get your passes and single day tickets for the September Festival here. You don't want to miss out on this lineup.)
