Chive Fest @ Seattle Center 07.12.14

July 13, 2014

Chances are you are familiar with even if you may not realize it.  "Keep Calm and Chive On" is a message quite possibly more recognizable now than the original message "Keep Calm and Carry On" created by the British Governm ent in anticipation of World War II.  If that doesn't ring a bell then you've most likely seen someone wearing a tee shirt with a stenciled image of Bill Murrayon it.  Even if not, it's a very popular web site founded by John and Leo Resig.  John said the domain was purchased from GoDaddy for $9.95 in 2008.  A good deal if I've ever heard of one.  Block out some time from your schedule before you visit the site.  It's mind boggling how easy it is to get sucked into the vortex of the site.  Your intention might be to just take a quick peek but it's inevitable you will spend more time than you ever expected or wanted to browsing the galleries.

So what is Chive Fest?  2 stages, 8 bands and a lot of drunk people having SO MUCH FUN!  I don't think think that the music was the big draw for this event though there was some great music for sure.  It was the overall atmosphere that made it special.  People drinking beer, playing games, running through the fountain and simply having a good time in the hot, hot sun.

Below are a few photos from the day.  I hope they come back next year!
