after the jump fest was about being surrounded by amazing writers and artists who are passionate about music, contributing thousands of dollars for public music programs in a city that is loved, and meeting musicians and new friends that were so complimentary, talented and kind, who mutually believed in what each other was creating.
please be sure to enjoy these q&a’s that were answered by half of the after the jump bands that played this year’s brooklyn festival. each shared their own special mixtape along with several different responses to a series of questions including their favorite albums of 2008.

the shackeltons‘ passion really was quite the highlight during the day of after the jump fest. watching their performance decorated in tree branches, leaves and flowers that singer mark redding peered through, triumphantly held and sang with complete poetic confrontation, making those in attendance feel as if they were cast under the music’s own chaotic spell. as requested and energized by the band, the young children standing in front helped to throw the leaves that fell to the ground back up onto the stage and seemed to love every single minute of it. one of the best shows seen in awhile, all i could truly do was sit under the sun and smile.
