July 14, 2009 – I am a summer girl. I like picnics, beaches, camping, roadtrips, summer foods, festivals, and being outdoors. I love outdoor music fests – grabbing a piece of grass, kicking back and enjoying the sights and sounds. Are you a jazz fan? The Atlantic Jazz Festival is on right now! I have two tickets for African Connection 111 up for grabs! What is the catch? You must have Saturday the 18th free in your summer schedule and you must be able to come into Love, Me Boutique during open hours to claim the tickets. Leave a comment here about your favorite summer concert memory. I will draw a name (from the commentors) on Friday morning. Make sure you leave me with a way to get in touch with you.
I have too many favorite summer concert memories to mention – but I will: Driving to Vancouver from Jasper, AB to see Sonic Youth at Lolopalooza (94?), Ottawa X “The Cure” with my bestie (by ourselves!) at age 13 (?), Duran Duran for my 11th birthday, and a two or three day music fest in the 80’s with my brother and dad. I saw the Flock of Seagulls, Kajagoogoo, David Bowie and a slew of others. It was called the US Festival. Good times.
