We staged this one-day Barnstormer show on 4th of July, 2010. It was the same weekend as the 80/35 Fest in Des Moines and because of contractual obligations, we had to keep quiet about our secret headliner because they were also playing that festival. So no one knew that The Walkmen were playing until they showed up. At the time, this was the biggest crowd that we'd ever had for a Barnstormer event. Dawes, Justin Townes Earle, Jonny Corndawg, These United States and Young Man all played and we decorated Codfish Hollow with red, white and blue bunting. There was a big and short thunderstorm that struck in the middle of the show, but otherwise a great, hot day and night that forced Corndawg to shave his head.
