Bragg Jam is always my favorite festival I regularly attend–I love how spirited the whole downtown Macon area gets for it, there’s great food (shoutout to Doughboy Pizza and Taste & See Coffee Shop!), and the organizers always manage to keep everything running smoothly and on time, which isn’t always a given at festivals.
I was upset to not be able to make it to the shows on Friday–I had a prior commitment I couldn’t get out of. I was upset, as the Friday schedule was the best it’s been since they added a second day a few years back, and missing of Montreal is always a bummer. Nevertheless, I had a blast Saturday evening despite not getting in till a little later than I wanted (I suck at time management).
The first act I saw ended up being my favorite–I had never managed to see American Aquarium before, which was weird because I love their studio stuff. Unsurprisingly, I loved them live just as much. I would’ve stayed longer for their set at the Capitol Theatre, but since I arrived in town late, I wanted to catch as many bands as possible.
