Buntastic

Angela Bunt, of Buntology; created a recent documentary of the Wormtown 2009 Festy in Greenfield, MA I too was there (only for a day due to the fact I had to work the next day)on the weekend of September 18-20. Really heady stuff, cool jams, and an altogether vibrant scene.

Anyway she made this short documentary capturing the atmosphere and hot performances there from such bands as ‘Playin Dead’ and even has some chat time with the ‘Rubble Bucket Orchestra’ (both performances I was present at). The below video is just a five minute sample of the thirty-four minute documentary.
