Life Is Good and a Change of Season

Well, the summer is coming to a close and I am gearing up for the upcoming Hall & Oates performance at the Life is Good Festival in Canton, MA on Saturday September 21st!  The weather forecast is looking good and I am excited for the chance to see my most favorite band play in the late summer sun!  

I'm currently debating what camera to bring.  Do I go with my old standby...the Canon PowerShot S5IS or do I step out of the box and try the Olympus SP-600UZ that I have been procrastinating on picking up and using?  The Canon takes excellent shots in dark theaters where there are frenetic stage lights...that's usually why I go for it.  But given that this is an outdoor show where presumably there will be lots of natural lighting...I may be tempted by the Olympus!  I really won't have room for two cameras in my bag so I need to make a choice...and fast!

Another reason I am excited for this particular show is that The Roots will be on just before H&O take the stage!!  Oh yes...THE ROOTS!  This wouldn't be the first time these fellas would share a stage.  It should be noted that Daryl Hall sat in with The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon back in October of 2011 upon the release of his album Laughing Down Crying.  Also, Daryl performed at Philadelphia's 4th of July celebration along side The Roots and Queen Latifah back in 2012.  

As a fan, I am secretly hoping for a mini jam session between H&O and The Roots.  I have this sneaking suspicion that they will make it happen.  I hope I am not proven wrong!  

And seeing as we are in this transition of seasons I thought it would be the perfect time to post some pics of the Change of Season Tourbook.  It's one of my most favorite books with some amazing photos inside.  Enjoy!  And I will have a full report on Life Is Good this weekend!  Until then, do it for love!
