Athfest 2011: Lingo jams through the madness

Sunday, June 26th, 2011

Nervous but exhilarated, I stepped onto the Hull Street Stage to announce the next band, Lingo. At my very first Athfest, I had a chance to catch a few of the band's tunes, and their fun, jazzy songs with a hint of southern blues sounded even more awesome this time around. Half soulful funk and half jam band, they played an energetic mix of tunes that followed in that style. Then, in the middle of their set, a protester of sorts marched through the crowd bearing a nonsensical sign talking of Nazis and bogeymen, but the band didn't let this slight disturbance phase them for a second. As the man was quickly escorted away by the police, Lingo kept it cool, rockin' the stage till the very end. Great show!
