Saturday in the park

Yesterday, Erik & I went to the Bicycle Music Festival. Essentially, it's a moving concert through the city that you get to by bike. We went to the concert in Golden Gate Park. The speakers/equipment was powered by someone on a bike.

I use the term "concert" loosely. There was no real stage for the band.

We brought some of Erik's homebrewed Hefewizen, a towel to sit on, and rode down to the park. His beer is AMAZING. It tastes sooooo good.

We heard a band play - Sean Hayes. He was pretty good. Then, we saw a New Orleans 2nd Line Band - New Orleans 2nd Line dance party w/ MJ Brass Boppers!

Per Wiki, Second line is a tradition in brass band parades in New Orleans, Louisiana. The "main line" is the main section of the parade, or the members of the actual club with the parading permit; those who follow the band just to enjoy the music are called the "second line." The second line's style of traditional dance, in which participants walk and sometimes twirl a parasol or handkerchief in the air, is called "second lining."

After the festival, we went up to North Beach for a few more beers. It was a fun day!!
