There you go. Case closed. The defense rests. “Best Folk Fest in 10 years.” How can you argue with those numbers?
Ps. Most underrated part of following people’s Folk Fest experience via social media is everyone thinking their creative use of the word “folk” is some Eddie Murphy Delirious type stuff. “We’re all Folked up”. “This is Folking amazing.” “I think someone just Folked
in the upstairs bathroom at the Worthen.” Rich stuff.
I am officially declaring the SonsofFrankyCabot position on the matter of the 2013 Lowell Folk Festival as being “Pro” Having a Good Time. Despite what our friends over at LeftinLowell or the Lowell Sun will suggest, it is ok to go to the Folk Festival this year, and if the mood strikes you, have a good time. We’re not ready to hand over the keys to Lowellpalooza to a bunch of PCU Alumni. If you find that your spirit is lacking, and your mello is being harshed by the Fun PD, you’ll find us hippy dancing the shit out of this year’s Fest and would love to expand our circle. We won’t be bumming everyone out with chatter about “this year wasn’t as good as last year” and “these bands could be better.” Consider us your purveyors of Rainbows and Sunshine from here until next Monday.
