On my mind:
1. One of my favorite fall events is today. Good food, music, and people in spectacular moods every year I’ve been. It’s Local Harvest Festival in Washington Park, 12-4pm. Olivia Quillio and Careers are playing. And they are both very, very good.
2. Next week is O+ Festival in Kingston with some pretty dang awesome music. (Matt Pond PA!)
3. Mitski. This is her song and it is loud and good.
4. Silent Film Series at the library with live music performed by local musicians. Wow. Starts Wednesday.
