Scion Garage Fest morphs Lawrence into one sweaty, massive party

Scion Garage Fest could have been a total clusterfuck. Four venues with more than two dozen bands from a genre notable for crazy antics and over-drinking could have turned into something terrible. 

People were unfailingly cool, having fun, dancing, and just generally being nice to one another — all the while getting to see a bunch of bands that were top-shelf entertainment for free. You can’t ask for a better Saturday night.

The whole shebang kicked off with people standing in line at Liberty Hall to pick up will-call wristbands. The line stretched from the front of the theater, around the corner, down 7th Street, and then around the corner, heading north on New Hampshire. Craziness. Once you got your wristband, however, you were just steps away from everything kicking off inside Liberty Hall.
