Bunbury delivers sun and fun
July 14, 2013 - Andy Gray
“Bunbury” is a word coined by Oscar Wilde in “The Importance of Being Earnest” for an excuse made to get out of something boring.
Cincinnati’s Bunbury Music Festival is many things; it’s definitely not boring.
“Hot” is the first adjective that comes to mind, describing both the sun and the bands that filled six stages along the Ohio riverfront downtown. I think I’m finally rehydrated after catching the first two days of the festival; my thirst for great music definitely was sated there.
I got to see old favorites (we were right up front for Red Wanting Blue), I was blown away by Walk the Moon’s manic performance in front of a hometown crowd, and I discovered some great new bands, from the pristine harmonies of England’s The Dunwells to the communal vibe of the 8-piece band The Mowgli’s.
And thanks to all of that sunlight, it was easy to get some good photos, even when I wasn’t right up front.
