I survived all of forecastle! The third day was a much different experience for me than the first two for two reasons: I had Scott and Carol with me most of the day, and almost all of the artists that I came to the festival for in the first place played today. This resulted in focusing on friends a bit instead of just the music, and more predominately, staying in one place to hear music I already knew was amazing, rather than fully sampling every artist there.
My ears are buzzing. Hopefully tomorrow I can give a more complete report.
