Veteran Nippertown rockers Blotto kicked off the 30th anniversary LarkFest last Saturday at the ungodly hour (at least for rock ‘n’ rollers) of 10:30am, blasting through their opening song, “Too Much Fun.”

And “too much fun” was a most apt description of the day-long free, street fest, which attracted an estimated 80,000 folks to Lark Street for a full day of music, merriment, beer and lots of people-watching.

Here’s what the music looked like to Nippertown contributing photographer Stanley Johnson, who braved the throngs of merrymakers:

  1. Mr. Reidy says:

    nice to see the stages where I missed. too hard in the late afternoon moving around.

  2. Rose says:

    I was unable to attend, but Stan’s pictures of the event are GREAT!

  3. B says:

    Thanks for the link! Stan’s photos are great, it’s so hard to shoot those stages due to the huge white tents…

  4. Mr. Reidy says:

    to B You have to set the camera up for the stage performers, and that usually means losing blue sky in the background.
