A Night With Spearhead At The Britt

 

The air was buzzing as I loaded my car with blankets, food, and friends and headed out toward the Britt Festival in Jacksonville, Ore. Full to the brim with excitement we rocked my car vigorously from side to side until it was time to make the joyous ascend up the to the festival. Despite being completely sold out, we managed to funnel inside the gates in less than five minutes. There we joined the hundreds of child-like faces impatiently waiting to transcend from their daily stresses into Spearhead’s optimistic reality. We did not have to wait long, for somewhere between mincing the garlic into our guacamole wraps and actually taking a bite, Michael Franti emerged onto the stage:

 Sunny daySweepin’ the clouds away,
On my way to where the air is sweet.
Can you tell me how to get,

how to get to Sesame Street…

 

With his piercing voice, his playful, conscious lyrics, and his high-vibe music, Franti and his band rocked the night away and opened the 2007 Britt season like it has never been opened before!
