The first annual fest openly traded in nostalgia. Granted, much of the audience wasn’t yet alive or old enough to remember the golden age of post-punk. The headlining acts were groups that haven’t performed in over 20 years, but it seemed that much of the audience, young and old, was excited and thrilled to see them.
The newly reunited Pylon absolutely stole the show. A Certain Ratio rounded out the bill, along with Mika Miko, Vivian Girls, the Muslims and Medium Medium.
