Rain — the 2013 spring / summer weather theme marked its territory on Rock the Garden just before music was scheduled to start. Ponchos were quickly adorned as music lovers crowded together under the limited areas of shelter — waiting, but not for long.
Rock the Garden’s organizers (The Current and the Walker Art Center) quickly regrouped with a splashy underground show that could not have been better, even in the best of weather conditions. Festival goers crowded into the underground parking structure where electronic musician Dan Deacon was set up — mic in hand, entertaining the crowd with dance-offs and an impressively organized human-tunnel. A little rain was not about to keep this crowd down.
Back outside, the skies cleared and the lawn filled. Not a beat was missed — and the party rocked on.
The Heavy Table was there for the music, the scene, and, of course, the food. Below is a sampling of what Rock the Garden 2013 had to offer.
