I ussually go to one of the biggest folk festival in the Noth East in Lowell MA, and over the years not only gets better but GREENER! I highly recommend it to families!

I had an interesting experience las saturday in Brooklyn. I got at 5p.m. to the 'summer day party @ the yard' festival -which started at noon-, just to see "Shy Child" that played at 6p.m. The entrance was $10 bucks. They played a few songs, but i liked the fact that i went in and out, just for the Shy Child set.

And i have to say, that the sound was great!
...enventhough i don't like outdoor concerts either. So the practicality of thes event
is something to congratulate. One day, a bunch of indie bands, very well organized and,
you get in and out as you pleased without any problems.
