10,000 Lakes Festival: 2007 in pictures

Great weather, great music, wonderful camping with plenty of space and beautiful people all around... that sums up the long weekend at Soo Pass Ranch in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. I had a field time taking pictures (despite the early loss of a media card and a technology glitch that lost me a score of pictures from The Hip concert) and I hope they convey the festival vibe and spirit! Here's a start... pictures are in no particular order (and are clickable for larger size) though Toubab Krewe, Little Feat and The Tragically Hip all performed on Friday, July 20.


Toubab Krewe at the Barn Stage

Waiting for Columbus fan; Little Feat

The Tragically Hip; Gordon Downie - lead singer and lyricist extraordinaire; a Hip and Trailer Park Boys fan

Downie has also made an appearance in the Trailer Park Boys movie "The Big Dirty". For those of you not familiar with this Canadian TV series (now in it's 7th season), I implore you to go out and buy/rent TPB and get ready for a jaw-aching, belly-aching, laugh-till-you-fall-off session. For best results, watch with your buddies and have refreshments handy ;)

Malliman and I have seen Toubab Krewe three times now. Always very good. If you've not seen them yet, this would be a great opportunity. . . Thanks for the tip!
