Well, that's what we decided to call it.
All summer, I've been wanting to get to a festival. Mostly, Bonnaroo. But also a few bluegrass festivals, and Burning Man... and I haven't gotten anywhere really. So this was the best I could do.
So last night, Frank and I went to the Union County Music Fest 2008. It was a free concert in Nomahegon Park in Cranford. They had tons of co-sponsors, corporate sponsors, and cooperation from government and the Union County College and just a ton of organizations. And they had booked several really decent (in my opinion, anyway,) bands. People with a bunch of hits -- maybe on the older side, but not just doo-wop, anyway.
It was a great event. And here is my really really really long blog post to tell you all about it. I hope you have time to sit and read. Well, if you don't, it doesn't really matter, because like I told Frank, I really actually do write this stuff for myself. I like to write it and put it together. Read as much as you want. When you get bored, log off. I won't mind.
The concert is continuing today -- but today a huge hurricane is bearing down on Jersey. Today, the Gin Blossoms are supposed to be playing, who I most want to see. The B-52's too. But I don't know if we'll make it.
So anyway -- here is the blog of what I did yesterday.
First, we drove to the festival.
I love this picture. This is so "Jersey."
