Photo Gallery: Middle Of The Map Fest 2016 - Saturday

Charles Bradley
This year's Middle Of The Map Fest came to a close on Saturday night. Charles Bradley shined his light down upon The Midland crowd. His massive vintage soul sound, massive presence, and youthful moves -- despite being 67 years old -- were undeniably the highlight of the entire festival and if someone tries to tell you that some indie rock band was, they're wrong. While his performance was incredible, I was disheartened at the fact that the venue was not packed and that he was not the final act of the evening (Aimee Mann followed). Bradley concluded his set by giving a short and powerful speech about loving one another, then walking into the crowd and tossing out flowers.

 I then  headed to the new recordBar location near Power & Light. Don't get me started on that aspect. Com Truise played an hour of bouncy, infectious dance music with some very dazzling visuals projected onstage. His set was even more fun if you are the type of person who enjoys dancing in public. STRFKR closed the night with their brand of fun and catchy, psyched-out indie rock. Lots of lights and dancing there as well. Middle Of The Map Fest was fun. See y'all there next year.
