One of the nice things about the atmosphere at After The Jump Fest in June was the camaraderie among the musicians and the staff. Several hours after their set ended, late in the afternoon I ran into the guys from Bridges and Powerlines who were watching other performances and we chatted about the Fest, their set and other assorted tidbits. Andrew in particular was pretty stoked about their performance and when I went back to review the recordings he was right. Bridges and Powerlines played the ATJ Fest with energy and proficiency that at previous gigs they had only hinted. This was their unique power pop at its best.

We recorded this matrix recording from the same equipment and location as all the Galapagos stage sets. Enjoy!
