was served everyday for only $35, which considering a pretzel at the Bud stand
was $5 really was a bargain. I really enjoyed the weekend, and have a better
understanding of some of the bands that played at the festival, which is the
beauty of a festival, being exposed to groups and music you might not have had
the chance to hear again. I’m excited to listen to the latest Bleachers CD. Jay-Z
was in the audience but no Beyonce. She was spotted the next day with her man

As of this weekend it’s back to status quo with the two couples with Selena hanging with the Biebs in Canada.
