Day 2 of Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta featured more of the same from day 1: great music and sound, big crowds, bright sun. I spent a little less time wandering on the second day than I did on the first, so I was able to enjoy more of individual sets and spend more time relaxing in the shady, grassy areas near the Peachtree and Piedmont stages.
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised to run into so many Savannahians in Atlanta for Shaky Knees. With a lineup this good, that 250 mile trek up 16 and 75 doesn’t look so daunting.
The Avett Brothers closed out day 2 with a beautifully staged, high-energy set; their performance came on top of strong performances by Social Distortion, Interpol, Flogging Molly, and lots more.
I’ll have more to say and a lot more photos to post in the coming days. So here are some pics from day 2, with more after the jump:
