Rock music in the woods: Images from Timber! 2013

Timber! Outdoor Music Festival was a giant, well-organized party in the woods. Everything from the corporate and community partnerships to the facilities on site made the weekend safe, fun and memorable.

Oh, and then there were the bands. So many great bands played. See my review here and enjoy some of the indelible moments from the festival after the break.

Hobosexual’s hard-rocking blues metal assault nearly deafened the crowd, including an intrepid Seattle Times music reporter stationed within inches of the PA. Photo by Owen R. Smith.

One of the main goals of Timber! was to introduce children to music. This little guy is getting quite the education thanks to Quasi’s Sam Coomes. Photo by Owen R. Smith.

Fruit Bats2(edit)

Fruit Bats frontman Eric D. Johnson used some great judgment and got the crowd moving with an uptempo set of tunes. He was one of many musicians to remark on what a unique event Timber! had been. Photo by Owen R. Smith.
