Full Gallery: Indigo Music Festival 2015
As festival season approaches, Southern Californians were able to get their fix for the time being last month at the Observatory’s Indigo Music Festival. A bill featuring mostly local alternative-rock bands, the iconic Melvins headlined, along with genre-defying groups Deafheaven and Blonde Redhead. Originally a weekend long event, the festival was unfortunately condensed to a single Saturday. Despite the setback, the show went on and 24 bands split between two stages rocked some of Orange County’s biggest, noisiest music lovers.
Some of the day’s highlights: Dahga Bloom introducing themselves as the Melvins, L.A. Witch‘s intense jamming, The Entrance Band‘s smooth moves, Deerhoof‘s EVERYTHING, Talk In Tongues‘ drummer busting a hole through his snare, and of course, the Melvins and their double drums set up!
