Music is an equalizer, a universal wave fostering personal and community growth through melodies and lyrics. But punk rock, and every sub-genre that falls under its umbrella, is a genre that unites the masses like no other.
Wrecking Ball’s second and final day included bands like American Football, Dinosaur Jr., Motion City Soundtrack, Thursday, Joyce Manor, The Promise Ring, Trapped Under Ice and many more. This is the type of festival where you befriend strangers in passing because of the shirt you are wearing, get a free haircut because you can, drink an endless amount of hose water and also watch the bands that made you feel in high school.
