Kurt Vile & The Violators at Governor's Ball

I was just browsing the music blogs this weekend and came across photos of Kurt Vile & The Violators at Governor's Ball last week. I was super stoked to see that they are still wearing their Fuzz straps on tour. Pretty much all of the guys in the band are rocking Fuzz straps. So dope.

Kurt is using his namesake Kurt Vile peruvian strap on his Jaguar. It's hard to see it because of all the hair, but it's there. He's also got a peruvian strap in grey stripes on his Martin. Jesse Trbovich is using the solid strap in green on his cream tele, and Rob Laakso has a peruvian strap in salmon straps on his blonde Rickenbacker bass. A bold combination!
