21 bands played Northampton's annual Transperformance bash yesterday. The event is held every August as a fundraiser for the Northampton schools' arts programs, and is always a ton of fun, with somewhere around two thousand in attendance. The theme this year was "Labor Party," so each act based their set on a job/occupation-related artist like The Police, MGMT, etc. I played guitar for the Zip Cody band, as we transperformed ourselves into Johnny Paycheck. It sure was fun crankin' up the Tele and sending some chicken-pickin' goodness out into the evening air.
