WXPN music festival

WXPN music festival. In a word, amazing! These shots represent only a fraction of the bands and good times experienced at this 3-day celebration of music. The Village Green picture shows all the green companies at the festival who shared their message with the music fans. We were in the 2nd booth, and coincidentally, had a perfect view of the Marina stage! My favorites from the the middle, Hoots and Hellmouth, a rock-gospel-jam-revival energy that just doesnt stop! Thousands of people crowded in to see Hoots and Hellmouth rock the stage as the sun went down over the Marina. Last pic is my surprise favorite of the festival, John Forte...powerful lyrics full of hope and inspiration...reminded me a lot of Michael Franti...Mr. Forte produced and co-wrote tracks on The Fugees The Score, plus 2 solo albums!...this particular evening he was accompanied by a philly local on a washboard! (I forgot her name...sorry!) Somebody post her name if you know!
If you didnt go, check out the archives on, and get there next year!
