Mile High Music Festival Wrap-Up Pt. 10

My old roommate Sean is a huge fan of Martin Sexton's music, so I decided to see what all the hub-ub was about. I didn't get very close before I could tell that it wasn't my scene, snapped a few terrible photos, and turned to get more water.

I walked by OneRepublic's set, and honestly a little surprised by how interesting one of their songs was. On my way to the water, they played a cover of the Buffalo Springfield song "For What It's Worth," and while marginally interesting, it didn't hold my interest for too long. On my way back to the other side of the festival, they played their Apologize song, but it sounded like a sort of ethereal new age 80's rock out mixed with 90's pop country. I was honestly rather impressed. Then they started their next song, and I decided to move on.

I caught the end of the New Mastersounds' set up and instantly liked them. They just seemed like great guys. Then they started playing, and about 2 minutes in I couldn't stand it anymore and left. Funk Jam Bands are now on my list of things not to see.

The New Mastersounds - Land of Nod (Lack Of Afro remix)

I went to check out Colbie Caillat, because I didn't want to go anywhere near Tea Leaf Green. Well as soon as I could hear Colbie, I knew that she too was a bad choice. I snapped one photo ... maybe just so I would always remember how close I actually came.

What happens next? Stay tuned for our next installment.
