All Points West Music & Arts Festival starts today over at Liberty Square Park. I am so bummed that I'm missing out on this concert and jealous of Ben Kaufman, who will be there front and center enjoying bands like:
Friday: Radiohead, Underworld, The New Pornographers, Michael Franti & Spearhead, The Go! Team, Girl Talk, CSS, Duffy, Forro in the Dark, Little Brother, Andrew Bird Grizzly Bear, Mates of State , The Duke Spirit, Lowry
Saturday:Radiohead, Kings of Leon, Animal Collective, Metric, Chromeo, The Roots, The Black Angels, The Virgins, The Felice Brothers, Alberta Cross, Sia, K'NAAN, Nicole Atkins, Your Vegas

Sunday: Jack Johnson, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, Cat Power, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Amadou & Mariam, Trey Anastasio and Classic TAB, The Secret Machines, Jason Isbell, Matt Costa, Robyn, De Novo Dahl, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Earl Greyhound, Ben Jelen, Rogue Wave, Neil Halstead
The tickets are reasonable, the setting is beautiful (see above) and there's a multitude of options on getting there...including carpooling with strangers. With a line up like this, I am starting to regret my weekend decision...
