“What you thought was a hurricane was just the rustling of the wind/ Why’d you think we need Amazing Grace just to tell it like it is?” – Dr. Dog
Few videographers capture the essence of a musical experience better than our man in Philadelphia Jake Krolick, who crossed the Delaware River to brave New Jersey to cover the 2013 XPoNential Music Festival. What separates Krolick from the pack is his foundation as a live music lover first, down to picking up on the surrounding atmosphere that dances with what’s happening onstage. His gift for brevity and well chosen moments is on display here with choice bits of the Wiggins Park on the Waterfront woven together with performances from The Last Bison, Dr. John, Lord Huron, Trampled By Turtles and Dr. Dog. Once again, Krolick allows us to dangle our toes in the experience even if we were far, far away at the time. For photos and Jake’s review of the fest pop over here.
