Heck Fest: LAKE Dinner Show

21 Jul

Our trip up north last week was for the 10th and final What the Heck? Fest, an annual three-day event in Anacortes, WA. It’s mostly hosted by the Elverums, plus Bret Lunsford and Karl Blau, with ties to Knw-Yr-Own and K Records, and it’s mostly the same bands each year, almost all from Washington.

The first event is a dinner show, and this year’s featured D+ and LAKE. After seeing Eli Moore solo and Eli and Ashley in a trio, both of which are great, seeing the full band again was just amazing! It was mixed perfectly, with Phil Elverum at the sound board. I couldn’t imagine better dining music.

They even got people up and dancing for “Roger Miller”:

NOTE: I have a ton of audio from the festival. I think I’m just going to go through the best of it chronologically. Stay tuned!
