GratefulFest in Ohion is always a great time!
What's up guys, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up about the inaugural Chicago Bluegrass & Blues festival, this 11/22 at the historic Congress Theater, all benefiting the Saving Tiny Hearts Societies fight against the country's most common birth defect.
The first 10 folks that hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org will get a pair of tickets mailed to them. We're excited for you to help us spread the word about this righteous endeavor
Glastonbury was an incredible festival this year!
some of the stuff I checked out...
...there were stacks of other bands. There was all the crazy stuff with Amy Winehouse punching a fan in the audience, Pete Doherty not being too wasted to play. The latest newer up and coming English bands. James Blunt actually sounding like he was playing from the heart instead of being a wanna be pop boy like he sounds like on his albums. Lots of surprising stuff. Like the way the English don't waive their drug use around quite so openly as Americans, same with dealing, couldn't see it happening very easily, unlike US festivals.
