The Magus

XPoNential Music Fest 2010


Great time yesterday at the XPoNential. I was with my 7-year-old daughter, so I kept my rockin to a minimum. Did catch Dr. Dog’s set, which was excellent...


XPN did a terrific job with the event: the Children’s Garden was a blast, the merchants provided a wide variety of food and drink, and the layout (as always) was easy to walk and fan- and family-friendly. And the people there — the volunteers, the vendors, the attendees — were incredibly, wonderfully human; everyone was watching out for his/her fellow concertgoer in the potentially dangerous heat.

Oh, and the music was fantastic, too.

If you missed it this year, keep it on your radar for July 2011.
