Photo Gallery: Shaky Knees Festival May 13-15, Atlanta



Photographer John Boydston went in search of great music and visual delights at the annual Shaky Knees Festival in downtown Atlanta, and found lots of both.  He reports there were 5 stages and an ambitiously diverse lineup of some big, some not yet big performers.  His personal highlights were Slowdive and Eagles of Death Metal.  Here’s a short gallery of who and what he saw and heard, which is by no means a complete overview.
