Here’s part two of our three part series we(Out Of Town Films) co-presented with WXPN. It features a local Philadelphia band, The Bailey Hounds, playing on the lawn of the Susquehanna Bank Center a few hours before doors opened.
The Bailey Hounds ”Oh My Demons, How They Wander” - WXPN’s XPoNential Festival - Camden, NJ - 07/21/2012
It was a cloudy, overcast afternoon for day two of WXPN’s XPoNential Festival. The Bailey Hounds were on the side-stage at the Susquehanna Bank Center running through their soundcheck. They had just found out that they were going to be playing two sets later on that evening since another band had to drop out. The four-piece were especially stoked since they were technically opening for Wilco, The Avett Brothers and Dr Dog twice in the same night.
We caught the very end of their soundcheck and already had an idea of where we wanted them to play us a tune. When the band greeted finished up, we asked what they thought about playing on an empty lawn at the Susquehanna Bank Center. For those of you who have never been to the venue, the lawn is massive. It must hold at least 15,000 people. The guys immediately agreed to the idea without hesitation.
After they gathered their instruments, we headed up an enormous set of stairs to the lawn. We had to time the shoot perfectly since the other bands we’re running through a line-check. Once we found a quiet moment, they played us “Oh My Demons, How They Wander” off their full-length debut, Along The Gallows. Enjoy.
