Overheard at Mission Creek is a selected list of Tweets-from-last-night. Each day we’ll take you through a collection of some of the things Iowa City folks have been Tweeting about the festival.

Expect nothing less from a punk performance art marching band.

A single teardrop runs down the cheek of a lonely bro who just wants to play tuba.

Fun fact: Mucca Paza means ‘Motley Cow’ in Italian

Honey, is that a marching band standing over there?

“Kembrew, did you really mean it or am I just another one of your media pranks?” – Yale, 30 seconds later

Places not to be tonight: Dollar Tree, Mercy Hospital emergency room, Gunnerz.

Raise your hand if you think above-the-Deadwood should be more of a thing.

We trust Black Ocean is staying safe tonight.

Mumfords rocks all the stages.

I guess you could say Tyler is in the House. Heyoo.

Dei sub numine viget.

So you were the one checking your phone at the shows this week!!

I’ll describe how stoked Andrew is. HOLYSHITFUCKINGOMGEXITMUSIC!!!!!!!!!!1

So accurate, so tautological.

Only Killer Mike has the power to put the night back together.

Sincerity was the theme of K. Mike’s sermon. Fuck Ronald Reagan and Hulk Hogan for saying one thing and doing another.

If there’s one mental image to leave with that fully represents what this festival is about…it’s this.
