All the Bands and Fans We Saw at Kentucky's Railbird Festival

By most accounts, Lexington, Kentucky’s Railbird Festival was a hot and steamy time that was also occasionally a thirsty mess. But anyone complaining about it probably shut their mouth this week when they saw the Bonnaroo cancellation (at least you got to have a music festival, Railbirders). Check out the people and bands we saw.   This slideshow was originally published by our sister paper Creative Loafing Tampa and republished with permission.
