Pop-punk revivalists Meet Me @ the Altar tweeted in celebration of “GAYCHELLA,” while MUNA lead vocalist Katie Gavin called the festival “Lesbopalooza” during her band’s set. “So many great things happening today,” said Alvvays bandleader Molly Rankin. “I feel like I’m at Lilith Fair.”
The spirit of that touring festival, which broke through the male-dominated music world in the late ’90s, was alive and well at this year’s edition, as was the organizers’ ability to curate a bill of indie-sounding artists (in total, 32 acts across two stages) spanning pop, rock and folk that are at times jangly, dancey, melancholic and jubilant was on full display. As always, All Things Go offered attendees the ability to — as a sign for a drone-shot photo op promised — “own the vibe.” [Washington Post]
