One thing I do get to every year is the folk festival in Kingsville. There are always some great bands, the venue is relatively intimate and the crowd is always delightful.One thing I don’t enjoy is music festivals. I can put up a huge list of bands that I’ve seen at festivals like Pitchfork, Lollapolooza, All Tomorrow’s Parties, etc, and with but two exceptions, I don’t feel I really saw the bands. I saw them, but the experience felt removed or just weird because it was during the daytime with a bunch of drunk obnoxious people around not paying attention. The exceptions were The Flaming Lips and The Cure. Both translated well, but also the crowds were really engaged.
