Honk Fest West 2014 - At the Dock

Our final day of HONK was the showcase of every band, back to back, ten minutes apiece.  Playing on the waterfront under the ferris wheel was a special treat!

Still so much energy! (photo by Alexis Greenwood)

Honk Fest West 2014 - Fremont Solstice & Gasworks

The Fremont Solstice Parade is a long, hot slog.  But we triumphed in style. And then played a set at Gasworks Park.

Honk Fest West 2014 - Georgetown

It's time for HONK Fest West again - the highlight of the Artesians' year.  Time for seeing band friends, playing amazing music, and for not getting enough sleep.

I don't think they thought through what the folded sign reads

Show w/ Bucharest Drinking Team

The only thing more fun that a show is a show with another HONK band!  Bucharest Drinking Team came down from Seattle to play at Rhythm & Rye as a funraiser for our upcoming trip to Boston.

Evergreen Graduation 2014

The Artesians were asked to lead the Evergreen graduation procession for the 4th time in 5 years! What an honor! Usually it takes around 45 minutes for everyone to come in and sit down, but this year we must have had them dancing down the aisle because it only took 20 min!
