I got to see some favorites: Mumford and Sons, The Swell Season, and Freelance Whales, find some new favorites: Flogging Molly, Gogol Bordello, and !!!, as well as listen to many others that are popular right now. Really there are too many to mention...we managed to see around 40 bands in the 3 days, and I decided that music festivals are best left to the extroverts of the world. On the bright side, it inspired me to write 3 poems. :)
|At the end of the 3 days, Nature apologized for the horrid|
heat by rewarding everyone with a spectacular sunset.
I usually keep my language geekishness to myself somewhat, because I'd hate for people to feel like I was making fun of them, but seeing this sign repeatedly (at the vacation rental we stayed at during the festival) finally did me in and I posted it on Facebook. Something so simple as misspelling "handle" really shouldn't be so entertaining, right? But I just can't help thinking about what poor Handel would think about it.
I hope you all had a great weekend (at much cooler temperatures than the festival's high-90s F) with plenty of reading opportunities. Enjoy what bits of spring you can find this week!
