Arden Music Festival Saturday

The 4th Annual Arden Music Festival is this Saturday from 1:00 to 8:00, in the grove behind the Arden Gild Hall.
The Arden Concert Gild has put together a great lineup, including southern rock from The Tall Pines, world beat music from Joseph Tayoun's Middle Eastern Jam Session, and blues harp master Mikey Jr. and the Stone Cold Blues.
I'm particularly looking forward to the Washington D.C. roots rock band, Last Train Home, known for this Christmas pity party classic:

And you promised to be
Home for Christmas
Life is short and talk is cheap
So don't make promises you can't keep
What could be better than a catchy song about the holiday blues in July? Bluegrass inspired country pop whiz kids the Greencards wrap things up.
The volunteer, non profit
Arden Concert Gild organizes great concerts in the down home comfort of the Gild Hall. If you come out this Saturday, I recommend you buy an annual membership, which entitles you to discounts at their great concerts for the coming year.
Tell 'em TommyWonk sent you.

Thanks for keeping us up to date on what really is most important in this lifetime: Living......and enjoying it.

This is a refreshing change and was unknown to me before your post. (Thanks for including the lyrics, by the way, I think that was the hook). Will try to sneak in late if an earlier prior engagement will allow it.

I've been pondering my next post on wind power, or Cheney, or hedge funds, or something, until I realized it's summer and that I just wasn't in the mood for serious thought.

That's the hook alright; there's nothing like a downer lyric with a catchy melody.

Self pity and a good hook: As my friend Scott says, "It's worked for years."
