At the end of May, Summer Camp Music Festival kicked off the summer festival season in style with three days of near non-stop tunes. Ahead of Summer Camp’s official start, on Thursday night, the festival hosted a pre-party of epic proportions. One highlight of Thursday night’s festivities was Spafford, who shredded through their set and helped kick the festival off right. After opening with “The Postman,” the group moved into a stellar rendition of their funk-infused number “Mind’s Unchained.” Luckily for us, Spafford just released pro-shot video of this near-eight minute song, so we can relive the magic. You can check out the video of “Mind’s Unchained” below, as well as listen to Spafford’s full set from Summer Camp, courtesy of Dave Lewis.[Cover photo from Electric Forest: Patrick Hughes]Setlist: Spafford | Summer Camp Music Festival | Chillicothe, IL | 5/25/2017Set: The Postman, Mind’s Unchained, The Remedy, Backdoor Funk, Salamander Song, Electric Taco Stand > Dis Go In 5? > Electric Taco Stand, All In
