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.

So my son is the drummer for Dr. Dog, I was at the festival yesterday, and I was surfing the web, looking for You Tubes when I found your blog. What is really insane about this is that I am a writer, too, and well, I don't want to say anything else, just read this essay and especially the comments section...I am convinced there are no coincidences in life.

And thanks for the You Tube! It really captures the festival. I did not have a great spot like you did so I did not get to hear everyone singing along until I saw your video, which really made me smile.

P.S. Can't wait to read your book! Perhaps you will be a future "victim" for my online book club.

And I am a total idiot - I forgot to post the link to the essay to which I refer:
