terday marked the end of the l and this year was easily the best time I’ve ever had at this festival. It’s gotten progressively better each year, too, especially since the addition of the Choco Lands forest area last year. It’s a spot in between the stages that hardly ever gets used by the general public, and yet for this fest most of us were getting dusty walking through the woods a few times each day to stroll past the food trucks and milk-and-cookie stands.

On my way over to at 3pm or so yesterday, I noticed the truck was parked by the fried pickle stand and a rather large crowd was forming. Turns out was planning a little surprise set in the woods for an intimate few, which you’d hope to see if the truck rolled into your home town. He played “Love Interruption,” “Broken Boy diers,” a tune I’m forgetting right now, and then ended things off with a singalong to “Hotel Yorba”…
