People often like to tell me that I am the busiest person they know.
Like I don't already know that.
Because I am one of the busiest people in the universe.
Part of that is because I have a job that I love that pays the bills, AND I have another job that I love that I do strictly out of love.
Last weekend was 75% about that job. Friday and Sunday I had the honor of working the first ever Square Roots Festival in Lincoln Square. Something something craft beers, something something local restaurants, something something wares and trinkets.....for me it was all about the music.
Sunday, I worked the merch. Ahem, for you non-musical folks, I looked after the artist merchandise. I met many lovely people.
Friday night, I was stage manager for one of our outdoor stages (we had four stages total, that's how we roll at the OTSFM). I had the pleasure of working with Garland Jeffries and his band, as well as the Hoyle Brothers.
Here's a picture of Garland and his band, from my vantage point:
The other 25% of my weekend? Rocking the F out at Mayhem Fest with two of my awesome friends. There was Anthrax, there was Motorhead, and there was SLAYER. We left before Slipknot.
So, I guess it's true - I am busier than anyone I know, but I am having one hell of a kick ass time.....
