Last weekend’s Harvesting the F.A.M. Festival events that took place throughout downtown were a huge success, from the perspective of organizers, show-goers, and performers alike. It’s phenomenal to get all the best, and often rare, acts of the city playing in such a short time span, with some wonderful out-of-towners joining in on the fun as well! Here are some photos and reviews of last weekend.
