I was able to attend Cincinnati’s second annual Bunbury Music Festival featuring Tegan & Sara, Walk the Moon, and Fun:
- Tegan & Sara were stellar, and made me nostalgic for 13-year-old me.
- Second time seeing Walk the Moon and all I want is to see them again. They have been my favorite band since for four years now, and they shall remain my favorite.
- Second summer in a row seeing Fun. They were absolutely beautiful… DUH!
ANNNNNDDDD…. That’s all I’ve got.
