This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.

music hotness

so i tend to complain about the lack of music festivals down here.. sure there's ACL festival.. in September (which is like always ridiculously hot)... but the ones in town.. seem to be nonexistent.

now out of the blue there's 2 music festivals coming up.. one in July and another in August.

first... texas heat music festival. which is happening over July 4th weekend in Downtown.. and is shockingly full of electronica goodness..

second.. free press summer fest. which is being held the send weekend in August at Elenor Tinsley Park.. and bringing in notable indie groups like of Montreal and Broken Social Scene. exciting.

the best part is both these music fests are quite affordable.. the bad thing? houston is already scorching right now... why are these music festivals happening during the late summer.. when it's killer? i mean.. texas heat festival, with it's dance music.. that's a HEAT STROKE waiting to happen. don't get me wrong.. i'm HAPPY that they're trying to host these fests in town.. but SRSLY when everyone else is hosting spring/summer fests.. in 70 degree weather.. we should maybe.. think of doing ours off season.. when our weather is actually pretty good.
