This year’s outdoor portion of theÂ Mission Creek Music Festival was again held in the southern tip of the city at McLaren Park, including performances from Miranda Lee Richards, Brian Glaze and the Night Shift (Brian Jonestown Massacre), Grass Widow, Ganglians, The Fresh & Onlys, Thorny Brocky, The William Winant Percussion Group and Teri Gender Bender.
Though the weather didn’t stand strong for a warm day, the throng of sun-hungry, summer-dressed Mission Creek-goers stuck it through to F&Os’ late afternoon set.
Ganglians were caught in traffic and had to switch set times with Grass Widow. But unperturbed by the delay, Ganglians played a great set, which included the new song in the above video.
Miranda Lee Richards had this to say about the Brian Jonestown Massacre: “I love this sort of psychedelic, bass-like, Velvet Underground folky stuff, but these guys are so crazy. It was just going to be a rock & roll circus, but in the worst way.” At 22, she co-wrote “(You Better Love Me) Before I Am Gone” for 1997’s Give It Back and sang “Reign On” on Bringing It All Back Home Again in 1999.
Brian Glaze played drums (1994-1996) and toured (1997-1998) with Brian Jonestown Massacre
