Jargonhead may have been the headliner and the SCENTient Beings may have unveiled their new “reekabilly” sound but, according to The Beasts of Burden’s lead singer Alfredo Ox, the real stars of this past weekend’s music festival were the Does of Peace.
The Park’s new peacekeepers even got a shout-out from Ox when he leapt to the Beats of Burden stage on Friday night, ostensibly to welcome back our estivators. In an unexpected twist, Ox used the occasion to praise the Does, who he said, “grabbed an opportunity where there was none and made us the beneficiaries.”
“They’ve added a whole new dimension to peacekeeping and to our lives and I want to thank them for that,” he concluded.
Doves of Peace spokesBird Georgina Golub concurred on Sunday.
“They were fantastic … and not just in an auxiliary way. They’re absolute naturals and an important addition.”
