Wavefront Music Festival 2012

Wavefront was a blast.  First year of the festival and a success despite site issues (AKA it was on a beach) and a gnarly storm.  Alex's initial design was great, and Nicole Cox and I made some modifications - altogether ended up with a really sweet rig.  Also, props to RGB Lights for some killer visuals.
