Follyfest Rocks 797
I originally thought I was going to photograph a drag show…but I ended up at Follyfest instead. How did that happen?
Follyfest is an annual Make-A-Wish Foundation fundraiser put on by service sorority Gamma Sigma Sigma. The event was held at 797 this year as an 18+ event and included three bands: Velveeta, Spider Kelley, and Havoc Jack.
This year was the largest turn-out the event has seen thus far. Follyfest chairs Sumara Baldwin and Ama Boateng have been planning this event all year. I asked where the name Follyfest derived from, and Baldwin told me it’s been a tradition. Her and I both decided that it was because it’s held in the fall, and they wanted to make it cutesy, so they switched up the spelling and threw in a y. Sounds good, right?
The bands were solid cover bands. Nothing terribly news-worthy. I took some photos, so you can feel like you were there for three hours with me.
