One major plus about the first day of this festival was the weather; yesterday was clear and warm, with a spectacular sunset and almost no need for long sleeves. All of those things tend to be a rarity in San Francisco this time of year.
Things are looking much more ominous as I get off the bus Sunday, with threatening cumulonimbus brewing out over the Golden Gate while Sleepy Sun kick off their set for a small but stalwart crowd.
The weather may not be as good, but the audience today is certainly mellower, and also more diverse, covering a much larger age bracket. Surely there are a few Pavement and Bob Mould geeks amongst this bunch.
