yes, one of the best festivals in america turns 10 today. the hardly strictly bluegrass festival is one of my personal favorites & it's free! got to love san francisco, golden gate park & the philanthropist who throws this awesome party. with great artists such as the carolina chocolate drops, gillian welch, del mccuory, emmylou harris, sharon jones & the dap-kings, elvis costello, yonder mountain string band & the avett brothers, not to mention the countless other performers, there's sure to be something that trips your trigger. get there early, stay until your hearts content & don't forget to bring a blanket & a healthy amount of adult beverages. there's usually pretty cool merchandise & some tasty food purveyors as well (maybe you should bring a little loot). whether you kick up some dust or relax on the ethereal lawn of golden gate park, you can bet your ass you won't be the only one having a good time. hope to see you there! this years fest begins on friday october 1st & ends on the evening of sunday the 3rd.
