Independent Clauses | n. —unusual words about underappreciated music


July 22, 2009

I (Stephen) am hitting up DFest in Tulsa this weekend, although I’ll only get to go to Saturday, which makes me sad. But I’ll still get to see Mates of State and Cake, two of my favorite bands. The surrounding bands are a bit odd (Blue October? Metro Station? A yoga festival?!), but still, I’d pay 36 bucks to see Mates of State open for Cake. And I get a whole bunch of other bands thrown in for the money. Sounds good to me.

It’s humorous to me; I’ve been running this site for six years and I hadn’t been to a single festival. In six months, I will have gone to Norman Music Festival, DFest, and Austin City Limits. Good things come in spades!
