Sunday’s Local Harvest Festival at Washington Park Lakehouse came with a much needed break in the weather. The the lovely fall day and the promise of good, and good for you, food in small sampler cups drew steady lines.

The Ashley Pond Band in quartet form kicked it all off sporting a solid mix of great songs and fall fashion. A stripped down duo version of Railbird, or as Sarah Pedinotti quipped, Le Petit Railbird, were in rare form. Chris Kyle later informed me that the intimate and haunting duo arrangements were made up on the spot.

Proud purveyors of electro-pop, Beware’s ploy to steal your retinas was just as quickly followed by a compelling and successful attempt to steal all ears. The frenetic band exploded with energy, confetti and music. The set was littered with clever numbers like “Monster Song” about Lake Champlain’s Champ and “Winter Coats” (slang for beards).

Matt Mac Haffie describes Saturday, July 18 as “a perfect day for travel, tailgating and a brilliant baseball park concert.”
