They had 3 local bands:
Blue Aces: Three 16 year old girls and a 14 year old girl on the drums provided quite the amazing experience! We were rather impressed, especially for their age, and their amazing energy and stage presence! We secretly hoped that they would win.
The New Electric Sound: There music was fun and energetic, but it felt similar to the Neon Trees. We didn't care too much for the voice of the operation, but it was fun all the same. We felt them to be the lesser of the three bands. However, they took away the first prize of a thousand dollars. We were a bit disappointed at that. But they were still fun, I suppose. Judge for yourself!
D'if: Similar to the Postal Service. They had a great sound and was very enjoyable to listen to. We liked them a lot and would have been happy if they took first.
Meanwhile, as we listened to the bands, we got FREE chalk!
It is for their upcoming event in September, "Chalk the Block". So of COURSE, we immediately had to chalk it up. Pronto. Besides, I won't be in Utah in September.
Free chalk, free music, great company....Seriously...All the night needed was a snow cone shack just behind us. Then it would have been perfect.
Oh, and check out the sunset:
Gorgeous, eh? It was quite the fabulous evening. Now, for picture overload:
This is Erin and Caitlin, signing off! Happy day to you, good person!
