Good Vibes Save Lives
Wow. This has been quite the week for me musically. Before I could even process the amazing Dr. Dog/Delta Spirit show (I’ll write about it soon!) I found myself at the Life Is Good festival at Prowse Farm in Canton, MA. This is my second time attending the fest with mvyradio and I can’t quite express how FEEL GOOD it is! Every musician is chosen with positivity and good vibes in mind – this year the lineup includes Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds, Michael Franti, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Trombone Shorty, Eric Hutchinson, Soulive, Sara Bareilles, Allen Stone, Ryan Montbleau Band and more! The fest is family friendly with a kids stage and “chill zone”. And the most amazing part of the Life Is Good festival is that 100% of the proceeds go to help kids in need. Because of the great cause, the amazing music, and the feel good, welcoming vibe, everyone seems to have a smile on their face. This weekend’s perfect weather certainly helped too!
Today the fest is SOLD OUT, but you can watch LIVE festival coverage HERE!

I’ve been disappointed with myself for not posting all week…I haven’t necessarily felt musically inspired these days. I know there’s plenty out there to discover, but I just don’t seem to have the drive to explore. Great music is sometimes easy to find with all the new CDs that come in to the station, but I haven’t even been compelled to sit and listen. The change of seasons has gotten to my mood a bit, and this dreary weather hasn’t helped. I’m definitely listening to music…but mostly the same few artists and songs again and again. They fit my gloomy demeanor.
I have hope that I’ll get out of this rut after a weekend FILLED with amazing music. Tomorrow I head to the Life Is Good festival, which features two days of ridiculous talent…Ray LaMontagne, The Avett Brothers, Michael Franti, Maceo Parker, Ingrid Michaelson, Martin Sexton, Levon Helm…
What’s even more exciting is the cause – 100% of proceeds from the festival go towards helping children who have it tough. This festival is truly about good music and good vibes. So I’ll join my family, friends, and co-workers in Canton, MA tomorrow to celebrate life and music…even the rain can’t spoil that.
