I like my Music Mondays. It’s a necessary part of starting the work week. Listening to music at my desk; I find myself escaping to another place, and for a second I actually forget that it isn’t the weekend anymore. I may not be what you would call a die-hard music person that’s able to do a weekend-long event like Lollapalooza or Bonnaroo, but I did manage to go to the Virgin Mobile FreeFest this past Saturday. It’s September, and I’m totally okay with continuing to go to outdoor concerts and extend summer just a little bit longer.
Being an outdoor concert, it’s expected that there would be trees and animals. Freefest had both, except the animals were performing on stage and the trees were filled with lasers. Ah the great outdoors. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t understand what the deal is with music groups wearing animal mascot heads in their performances. Freefest was no exception to the furry-headed trend with performances by the Teddybears and Deadmau5. I just think my head would get hot and I’d probably topple over. I would much prefer glitter, face paint, and light shows.
Speaking of light shows, I ended FreeFest in the dance forest with Ghostland Observatory. I wish I could recreate the laser show they had during their performance. Since I can’t do it through words, here’s a clip of the show from Saturday. Enjoy!
