The rain was the winner of the day for day three in Denver Рand not just because The National gave up and stormed off (pun intended). The day was eventful, with a brilliant set from The Violent Femmes (wherein Gordon Gano revealed his new Colorado residency Рand showed off his new drivers license), covering their whole first album, joined by the Horns of Dilemma Рtotaling somewhere around 10 additional horns of all types. Manchester Orchestra may have had the strongest set of the day, bringing their unique, loud and gratifying brand of post-hardcore back to Denver. Me First and the Gimme Gimmes reuinited for a satisfying hardcore bout, while Cerebral Ballzy put on a fantastic Рand fantastically fast Рversion of their own Bad Religion meets meth hardcore set. Wounds debuted from Dublin Рbringing some great feeling screamo to the Revolt Stage, and then the rain really set in. Sound on the May Farms Stage began to degenerate with the TV on the Radio set, and was totally gone by the time The National tried to close down the festival. Crowds were sparse Рeven for Wu Tang Clan.

Here’s our abbreviated slideshow of Day 3:
