7:05pm lindsaybanks The line-up has "...and more." at the end. Please let it mean what I think it means

7:08pm lindsaybanks It appears that the folksy band Freakwater followed the Thrift Store formal dress code. Awesome.

7:15pm lindsaybanks Excellent folk rendition of Signed, Sealed, Delivered for Freakwater to finish with. Showing love for Stevie.

7:30pm lindsaybanks Just ran into @joegermuska from chicago! Not wearing thrift store formal.

7:50pm lindsaybanks Honeyboy Edwards doesn't seem to be capturing the crowd's least not around me.

7:55pm lindsaybanks Wipe-out number 2 on this elevated platform back here. Watch your step, folks!

8:15pm lindsaybanks I'm enjoying Icy Demons style mix. Tambourine adds nice touch says @PlannerAnnie

8:23pm lindsaybanks If only they had a idea if I spelled that right.
