Let’s look at the creativity and courageousness exposing the truths, the deep meaning underfoot, like bugs after the rain, this past year has been insane. Rearranged and renamed, complaints unrestrained, this is the new normal. I’d wanted to write scripture about Shoe Fest, some sort of article of faith, a declaration of devotion to what made me fall in love with festivals in the first place… Alas, this is my iconoclast blast that shall be touted on Facebook groups across America, the finest in toilet reading material.
It’s summertime. The casual days seem so much more as long days leak into evenings and the music never stops. The pop tune Let Her Go has infiltrated nearly every radio station and TV commercial as a seemingly background noise we have all become accustomed to. It got me thinking about Pete Jive.
