rhythm n' blooms, just what the seasonal affective disorder doctor ordered

Yesterday I went to Rhythm N' Blooms at the Botanical Gardens, and, man, it was exactly what my sun/warm weather/festival deprived soul needed. A good sized crowd came out with blankets and coolers in hand to laze the afternoon away while listening to some good music, and I did the same. 

Here are some photos from the day to give you hope that more days like yesterday are around the bend.

 They moved the stage out into a field, which I thought was a great change.

The view to the right of the stage. Breathtaking.

Yes, my friend brought her cat.

The Whigs. I don't know if it was the outdoor air or what, but this show suited them better than the one they gave at the Bijou last year. They said it was probably the prettiest place they've ever played, too.

Night fell and out came the Felice Brothers. Here they are playing with Diamond Doves.

And nothing says outdoor festival like shelter made from sticks.

Well done, Rhythm and Blooms!!!
