Green Apple Festival This Weekend & Sunday 4/20


If you live in DC, Denver, Dallas, Chicago, Miami, LA or San Fran then why don't you check out the Green Apple Festival this Sunday? Looks pretty cool, im sure it will bring out all the dirt worshipping treehuggers (and treethuggers like me).

In Denver I will get to see The Neville Brothers, The Benevento/Russo Duo, Rose Hill Drive (Acoustic), and The Heyday.

The D.C. lineup looks the stongest to me, but seeing Menudo in Miami could be cool as well:
