The Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival is an amazing annual free concert put on in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park bringing together music from primarily bluegrass, folk, indie, country, blues, and rock roots (thus the hardly strictly descriptor). This year had an especially good lineup (and did I mention it ‘s always free) so I made sure to make it out to two out of the three days. It’s great fun and I would highly recommend it to people for future years.
One of the only acts I had a really good vantage point for was Broken Social Scene (festival stages get crowded when they’re free), so I took a few videos which you can see below. Check out live videos of Broken Social Scene playing “Fire Eye’d Boy” and “World Sick” at Hardly Strictly 2011 respectively below. Enjoy!
