For this week’s “Throwback Thursday” gallery I wanted to go back into the archives to see what I had stored on film. That’s when I found an old box of photos from Finch playing at Endfest on June 22nd, 2002. I’d been looking for this box for a very long time. It’s insane to think that it has been 5,053 days, or 13 years and 10 months, since these images were captured. But what’s even more crazy to me is that it was a short three months after What it is to Burn was released. Finch were just becoming the it band of the moment and I still remember the day I first heard that album. You can find the gallery below and I hope these bring back some memories of the days when Drive-Thru Records ruled the world.
A small group of friends and I packed in the car and took a quick road trip from Portland up to the Gorge Amphitheater just east of Seattle. End Fest was a staple in the Northwest for showcasing some of our favorite bands in the upcoming alternative scene. This year was no different, Finch shared the stage that day with Jimmy Eat World, Dashboard Confessional, Vendetta Red, Hot Rod Circuit, and many others others.
I hope you enjoy the images just as much as I did re-discovering them.
