This month I did not go to any concerts around town. I stayed busy and lazy doing non-music things with family and friends. Christine and I decided to make the pilgrimage to the inaugural Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival to make up for it. Stay tuned for a full review and more later this week. I could and should have squeezed more sets into my schedule this weekend, but sometimes you go through break up and have a rough week at work. So you run off to a horse farm in middle Tennessee, don't plan your schedule and just chill.
Saturday we got our wonderful wristbands. Then I enjoyed the sounds of Saint Motel, Neko Case, Cage the Elephant, Punch Brothers and Weezer.
Sunday we explored the festival grounds and did some shopping before dancing to Big Sam's Funky Nation. Sang along with my beloved Nikki Lane and danced to Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Listened to Band of Horses while eating dinner, then settled in for Willie Nelson's closing set.
I am setting out to do all of these events next month. Wish me luck!
