Video from Day One of the 2011 Mission Creek Festival

Posted by Drew Bulman | Mar 29, 2011 | Arts & Entertainment

The 2011 Mission Creek Festival kicked off Monday like any festival should. That is to say, there was a lot of good music. Would you like to watch some video from the night’s performances? Well, then you’re in the right place, because video is about the only thing keeping this post afloat.

Up first, we have a Classic Education followed by British Sea Power, two high-energy alt-rock bands that kept the Blue Moose hopping late into the night. Check out the video below, and refer to our Youtube channel for a second helping of British Sea Power. You see? There is just too much video to fit into one post.

Finally, local sensation The Wandering Bears held down the fort at Gabe’s, opening for Birds and Batteries and Rubblebucket. It’s a credit to our video recorder’s microphones that very little crowd noise carries across into the recordings, but the effect is bittersweet for a show like this. Needless to say, the crowd was as loud and rowdy as you’d expect at a Wandering Bears show, which is to say my ears are still recovering.

Check out the video from The Wandering Bears–as well as Birds and Batteries–below. As always, you can find more video in our Youtube channel, including a clip from a certain Wandering Bears song that had the whole crowd singing along. Bears fans, you know the one.

Take care, kiddos.
