it's only rock and roll but i like it

I have been trying to put this post together over the past few weeks so anyways let me get down to biz-nass.  A few weekends back, the mister and I went to MI Fest in Brooklyn, MI out at Michigan International Speedway.  This was the first year they put it on and although there were some things that I hope they do differently come next year, (crossing my fingers there will be a next year) it was super rad.  There were two stages total and the music was a mix of rock, rap and country.  The small stage held lesser known (by no means less talented) acts like The Black Belles and Black Milk and the main stage held the big dogs like Sheryl Crow and The Raconteurs.

Besides music, MI Fest included vendors and artists hawking their merchandise and work and if you were smart enough to purchase VIP tickets (like ourselves) you got to enjoy 3 free drinks from a stocked bar (although the line was awful) and really yummy food that they rotated all day long. 

{side note - If they do put this on again next year, seriously splurge for the VIP tickets, you get closer access to the main stage, free food and free drinks.  In the long run you save money and get a much closer view of your favorite band or performer.}

All in all, I had the best time.  The atmosphere was fun and the weather was perfect.
