day 2: nocturnal mid-day heat

it's perfect weather here right now- about 80 with nothing but blue skies and cool breeze. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals just got off the stage- her voice is incredible. the underlying soul in Grace's voice always give me goosebumps, even during the hottest part of the day.

Matt Burr did an incredible solo on drums- he hit the lamb skins so hard i thought they would break at any moment. the whole crew ended the set with new material, including "If I Lived In Paris," which made everyone smile as Potter told us of the plans she hopes to happen in her reality.

sighting: Michael Franti was also out to support The Nocturnals, graciously giving out hugs, smiles and photo ops to the all goodians near him. he'll be on the Rope-A-Dope stage at 7 p.m. for a solo acoustic set and then will had over to the main stage at 9 for a show with Spearhead.

heading out to catch Drive-By Truckers and Tea Leaf Green (who blew the roof off the Barn during the late night set at Mountain Jam about three weeks ago- should be a great show).

play on.
