It was rainy. It was muddy. So much so that the Washington Nationals cancelled their playoff game a block away and one of the musical acts refused to take the stage when it was time for their performance. And yet, the show must go on.
In this case, I’m talking about the All Things Go Fall Classic at Yards Park at the Capitol Riverfront, Washington, D.C., Oct. 8. This year’s show, which featured Empire of the Sun, Passion Pit, Sylvan Esso, Bishop Briggs, POP ETC, Sofi Tukker and Ace Cosgrove, was held under less than ideal conditions due to the awful weather, but spirits were high for those in attendance and those acts who did perform made the best out of what could have been a completely miserable day.
