Nice Day for a Scream

The 60th Annual Tulip Festival may have kicked off with a floating, flaming tulip, but by Saturday afternoon it was back to music as usual—and sun, which was somewhat unusual for the event. Vermont-based radio station WEQX 102.7 FM, presenters of the main-stage musical entertainment again this year, brought together a bill that spanned two decades of alternative music. Horn-fueled septet Rustic Overtones, currently in the throes of a longer-than-expected reunion stint, performed prior to multi-million-selling headliners Spin Doctors; the Portland, Maine-based group are led by singer-guitarist Dave Gutter (pictured, right). Austin, Texas band the Black and White Years, led by Scott Butler (pictured, left), opened the afternoon with music from their Jerry Harrison-produced debut disc.
