There were several (although not obnoxiously too many) photographers at the So Raw Festival this past weekend in Miami, so it makes sense at least some of those photos made it to Flickr. User J A I M E has a bunch of snaps in his photostream that gives a good sense of the fest's low-key, low-bullshit, sweaty and um, interactive vibe. Jacuzzi Boys, playing late on Saturday night, were clearly the local favorites -- and for some folks, dancing in the crowd just wasn't enough.
That picture only captures one extra body onstage though. Check out this video of the Yolks' Friday-night headlining set, from YouTube user garagelife. Yes, half the video is covered by this person's finger, but you get the general idea. (BTW, check out that guy's YouTube page if you like your rock raw -- he's got several videos from the Los Straitjackets show at Hukilau, and some other local shows from farther back like the Black Lips at Churchill's and King Khan at the Vagabond.)
