Man, West Texans party hard. Just as hard as East Texans, except they do it in the dirt -- in a lot of dirt. This weekend I made my way to Midland for "Crude Fest," what a great show. And once we got accustomed to the layer of dirt on everything, we were able to enjoy some really great weather. Here's some pics from the show.

The annual show which is billed as the biggest oil and gas industry celebration in Texas featured performances from Kevin Fowler, Roger Creager, Reckless Kelly, Kyle Park, Bart Crow, Jason Boland, The Damn Quails, No Justice, Cody Johnson, Johnathan Tyler and the Northern Lights, The Departed and tons more.
