Review: All Good Music Festival, July 8-11, 2010
They just weren't sure if it was the psychedelics or the heat. Aside from a late afternoon shower on Friday, the festival, held on wildly remote Marvin's Mountaintop near Masontown, W.Va., was a dry, hot affair.

Absolutely awesome this year.
The New Deal really kicked ass Thursday night. Aside from the rain, Friday night was great. OCMS, Umphrey's, and Further were amazing, with Bassnectar ending the night perfectly for me. I know, I'm a pansy and I am disappoint that I didn't catch Lotus, but I needed to get my head straight after all the madness I encountered that night.
Saturday was the best night for me as far as the music goes. I was a bit disappointed with the P-Funk show, but it was still cool to see George up there still jammin'. Derek Trucks really laid it down, as always, and hearing Susan's powerful voice still gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. And of course I can't leave out Yonder; they did an epic set as well.
Widespread Panic however, was the best show of the weekend in my opinion. I'm not a huge fan of Panic at all really; I'm more of a Dead Head if anything. But Jimmy Herring is a guitar god and I can't help but get up and move when he jams. Even though I thoroughly enjoyed them, Further just seemed too slow for me and I think they could have done a little bit better.
I wrapped Sunday up with the Moonshine Breakfast. Keller and Larry did great as always, even if almost all of the songs were covers.
Overall, I give the weekend a 100/10. All Good is always the highlight of my summer. Great music, great friends, and great times is all I need for the perfect vacation, and it's all 15 minutes from my house.
Thank you All Good for the great time this year, and I hope to all on the mountaintop next July.
