I considered plagiarizing the Woodstock Wikipedia entry instead actually writing this intro, but covering my tracks seemed harder than actually saying something. Sure, I could replace Wallkill with North Park, and Santana with Radon, but “An Aquarian Exposition”? I don’t even know what the fuck they’re talking about. And I don’t care.
Awesome Fest is four bars, three days, sixty-five bands, a couple hundred other people, and a great excuse to make some more drinking buddies. Just remember to eat a meal or two during the day. Drinking water will definitely help out in the long run. And if you feel like heading out to The Office on Sunday to catch the first couple bands, I’m sure they’ll appreciate it.
See ya there!
