Right to Party!

rites-of-spring-cover.jpg Vanderbilt students took advantage of their party rights at the Rites of Spring festival over the weekend. Actually, folks of all ages (students or not) were invited to the two day festival and 12,000 people showed!

It reminded me of a mini Bonnaroo of sorts, with more frat boys. Those that were old enough could carry one six pack of beer in and most did.

The music was right down my alley! There was some local talent like Jypsi and Bang Bang Bang, some classic old school hip hop by Naughty by Nature and then there were bands like Wolfmother (pictured), Rocco Deluca and The Burden and The Roots that blew my mind!

There were rumors that Jack White was going to join Wolfmother on stage Friday night, but sadly it never happened. The band did give a shout out and a tribute of sorts to The Raconteurs.

Click on the images below for more Wolfmother, Drive by Truckers and the crowd.
