About a week ago, knowing that I wanted to hit up a music festival this summer, my Gentleman Caller (as he shall heretoforth be known) took me to the inaugural River's Edge Music Festival on Harriet Island in St. Paul, MN. It was a GORGEOUS day.
I love music festivals. It's always great to see old favorites, like Motion City Soundtrack (whom I had already seen about 1000000000000 times).
And check out new groups, like Gardens and Villa (adding them to my summer rotation-- check them out!
The BEST part, though was, after nine years of loving and listening to their music like a crazy fangirl, I FINALLY got to see Scissor Sisters! IT WAS AMAZING. I will DEFINITELY be seeing them next time they come through the area! Definitely a live band.
There are no pictures from that one. Gentleman Caller and I were too busy being the first to dance our butts off and make idiots of ourselves.
