Video: Whartscape 2010 in Two Minutes


Last weekend in Baltimore, the city’s young and energetic population was treated to Whartscape, the annual independent music festival put on by Dan Deacon‘s multi-disiplinary crew Wham City. Lacking the huge lines and other inconveniences that usually characterize similar Brooklyn events, Whartscape was a refreshingly stress-free weekend in what was essentially a parking lot with some very clever stage setups (the smaller stage was literally in an alley). Sunday’s performances, which included Beach House, Future Islands, and Celebration were unfortunately delayed and moved inside because of rain, leaving us New York-bound and wanting more. But that didn’t stop us from getting some excellent video footage of the festival. Check out our two-minute Whartscape roundup, featuring music by Smart Growth, after the jump.
