Fuzz Fest - Scranton, PA

IMG_20160627_192517A little behind on my updating but it's been a busy weekend so finally getting around to it. :) 

Had a busy-ish week at work, nothing too out of the ordinary I suppose. On Wednesday we were able to take a longer lunch to watch the Austria - Iceland soccer game. Unfortunately Austria lost but honestly I didn't expect a different outcome. They actually did play very well in that game and stepped it up quite a bit, just wasn't enough. So Austria didn't make it through the elimination but it's nice that they were actually in it for a change which is already more than usually happens. :) 

Saturday we worked and after work went for a leisurely late lunch at 121 in Oxford. And Sunday we headed to Scranton, PA for Fuzz Fest. The radio station in that area is called 92.1 The Fuzz. lol. So that's where the name comes from. We stayed at the same hotel where we stayed last time two years ago when we saw Paramore at the same venue. The Radisson at Lackawanna Station is a pretty neat hotel at an old remodeled/renovated train station, pretty cool. Were able to check in when we got there around noon and then headed downtown for lunch at a place called Ale Mary's. Had a great lunch, really fun spot. Afterwards stopped at the hotel bar for a glass of wine before heading up the venue. The show was at the Pavillon at Montage Mountain, a big area on top of a mountain (ski resorts in the winter, water park in the summer, a minor league baseball stadium and whatnot) It's an amphitheater and really a pretty neat venue. 

The show was epic and lasted about 6 hours with 4 acts. Andrew MacMahon, AWOL Nation, Panic at the Disco & Weezer. Pretty cool line-up. Andrew MacMahon had so much energy, running and dancing through the crowd. I wasn't into AWOL Nation all that much but I have to say they won me over by the end of their set. Panic at the Disco was absolutely amazing and Weezer was great as well. The whole thing started around 6pm and we didn't get back to the hotel till after midnight. Definitely an epic night.

Slept in a little bit Monday morning and then made our way to work to our office in Newburgh, NY which is luckily on the way from Scranton (only about 1 hr 15 min)
