Hippie-like Sunday [4:20]

[Green Apple Music Festival]

Last night in an attempt to hold off on the reality that Monday was almost here, I attempted watching Dave Chapelle's Block Party on Hulu. I fell asleep before the opening credits were done.
Today I find out the line up for the Green Apple Festival and it's almost like fate would have me not watch it so I could experience it all live. And for free, no less. DC yet again provides a great opportunity to hear some great minds speak on Greenifying and Global Warming whilst listening to some great live music.
