Here, is a music festival at Dear Bay, the very special resort I keep mentioning (I've been there every month in the last four for one reason or another!). Here is going to be awesome. The sun, the fog and woods, the Bay, the bands! Tickets for the event sold out in (count 'em) three minutes, but I'm lucky to have friends in high places and excited to hang out with with them. It's always cool to hear the opinions of someone who knows a lot about good bands. Yayay!
Ravenna Woods, Damie Jurado, Builders and Butchers, Campfire Ok, The Head and the Heart, oh my!
In my teens and twenties, music festivals were a big part of summer, glorious nightless nights spent in sweaty crowds swaying ecstatically to the hum and beat and wailing guitars. I still remember waking up on a field, no tent of course, and walking down to the river to swim last night's songs still playing in my head. The band in question was none other than Smashing Pumpkins. Oh the glorious folly of youth!
I haven't been to one in years and I'm so so excited, not only for the afore-mentioned reasons, but simply to have a few days off the Island, in this, the busiest of months and the feeling of freedom that imbues me with.
Bring on the tents, yurts and little cabins, bring on the August sun, warm days and chilly nights and swimming in the Sound and the sounds, bring on the dancing beautiful people, the meteor showers, the Pleiades!
