photography by Rachel Carr While their free party at Freak City might have lessened the attendance at Spaceland a little, Ninjasonik never fail to draw a bunch of crazy-dancing lunatics to their shows.

The Slits came up in a man’s world, overshadowed by their guy peers—but nevertheless they’ve left an imprint on the minds of many. We tried to break down reality with Ari Up & Tessa Pollitt. We went for full-on girl talk about boys, love, the future, knitting, and girls pooping into each other’s mouths on the internet. This interview by Daiana Feuer.

Finding the teepee involved receiving intentionally vague directions from two groups of kids, navigating a sudden neighborhood with way too many lawn ornaments, and sneaking into someone’s backyard via a labyrinthine system of wooden gates I opened by tugging on bits of fishing wire tied into little loops.

The Bootleg Theatre—a self-described “speakeasy”—reeks of inauthenticity. Actually it doesn’t reek, it breathes: artificially cold air exhales out of beautiful state-of-the-art vent systems while life-punishing CFCs pour into our poor planet’s atmosphere. Which makes refreshing the $6 Stella you just bought and makes bearable the awkward, jittery house music we could have all lived without. Not that authenticity was to be expected—this is a Fold show after all—no matter how much you want to stick to principles, Bootleg’s creature comforts prove to you we’re just animals: give us cold beer and a cool room and we’ll happily oblige.

15 Twenty’s Blogger Shop Day 2 took place on a Sunday, the time when bloggers religiously shop. Tents, providing shade and merchandise, were set up at the parking lot nearest to Urban Outfitters. The uncrowded event was present with the ultra violent sun rays, but in the afternoon, DJ Heather Gram and bands Puppy Dog and WEAVE! came to play. Their noise intrigued out-of-place farmer’s market regulars to the stage.
