Backlot Bash 2013


The Backlot Bash 2013 was a four day festival event located in Andersonville that we heard about but often missed year after year. Pride Chicago weekend has to be one of the tightest jam packed weekends of the summer. It’s just impossible to be everywhere at once but we tried. The key word here is tried. We talked with one of the owners who was so sweet  and she was nice enough to let us know who the best acts were though I’m sure they were all great, what times they’d perform and much more. We made it out late Saturday night to see arrive to a packed parking lot behind the Andersonville Cheetah Gym of ladies having fun, singing lyrics and rockin out to the sounds of  Dot Dot Dot who’s set we arrive smack in the middle of. Quickly, we pull out the camera, forgot one lens, pull out the flash to make up the difference batteries are dead from leaving the flash on. You know that face you make when something so simple is overlooked and your screaming “COME ON?!”.  That face was made in full force. This was the cue to pack it up after Dot Dot Dot of course. We were so far back because  it was jam packed but we could still hear a few of their songs. We’ll make up for tomorrow with Uh Huh Her .


Day Two we return with all lenses, flash charged looking to catch up with some friends before Uh Huh Her went on. It was Pride Sunday, we partied, we walked it was a long day. Enthused to get up close to see Uh Huh Her performing after we found our friends we walked around looking and ran into everyone we knew from the area. We find our pack of friends letting them know we are waiting for Uh Huh Her then our friend says that’s who’s been playing for 30 mins. Remember the face from above yeah again. Felt like mutley mumbling underneath we breathe. So listed below are a number of pictures from the Backlot Bash 2013 sorry we did not seize the actual essence of the adventure like we supposed for our readers however all in all we had enjoyable. Subsequent 12 months throughout Delight Weekend you should definitely swing thru & reinforce the Backlot Bash!
