When I saw that Matrimony was kicking off the final day of Forecastle Festival 2014 with an early set on the big Mast Stage, I knew that was one day when I was going to arrive early. I’ve been following the North Carolina-based band pretty closely since hearing and shooting some photos of them at Revival Fest last fall here in Savannah.
The four core members of Matrimony are all related, but they bring distinctly different personalities and energies to the stage — but the combination is exhilarating. (And, I should add, a super fun band to photograph, though I wish every music festival would ban performers from wearing sunglasses . . .)
If you don’t know Matrimony, here’s the spirited “Obey Your Guns” off Montibello Memories.
A couple pics here, with lots more after the jump:
