They have free concerts here in Louisville as well and they're the bee knees. Nothing beats a summer concert, sitting in the grass, drinking a cold one...

Have I told you I love the layout of the blog? I don't think so. It's pretty great BTW.

oh man, and they're free!?

Oh my goodness I miss the twilight concerts!
I was there for the 2009 series
and nearly died of the awesomeness.
I mean iron & wine for free?!
I have yet to find something as awesome in Portland,
but there's got to be something right?

I am with you on the summer music. I just bought a giant hat that I plan to wear to every single Twilight show this year. They better release the lineup soon! I'm dying to know! last year's was glorious, so I hope this year beats it.
