After an amazing Friday afternoon and evening, I don’t think I can come up with a suitable review or summary. Let’s just sum it up by saying that Deas Vail, Over the Rhine, Quiet Science, Paper Route and Eisley all brought incredible energy and some of the best sets that I’ve seen by any of them before. Over the Rhine had missed a year at Cornerstone and their absence was felt last year. It’s been a couple years since Paper Route has been here and almost a decade since Eisley played at the festival. I hope all of them return sooner than later!
It does feel a little like the festival hit it’s peak last night, but there’s still more to go. As usual, I’m finally hitting my stride and adjusting to “Cornerstone Time” on the last day, but that’s the way it goes with this festival. Some great bands will finish up the festival, I’m looking forward to All The Day Holiday, Future of Forestry, and Seabird today. While it’s not my thing, I know the kids are excited about August Burns Red and The Devil Wears Prada. Cornerstone is wrapping up, make sure to get everything you can out of the fun today!
