This summer is aiming to put a hurting on your pockets! With all the upcoming album releases and ridiculously bomb shows and tours about to go down I hope you worked overtime, saved money from mowing lawns or freelanced your little heart out over the spring. I'll be sure to post/tweet about as many events as I can for you guys if I don't experience blogger overload first:)

One of the shows to watch right now is The 6th Annual Summer Spirit Festival! I went last year and had an awesome time rocking out to Common, B.O.B, Janelle Monae (who worked it out in a buttoned-to-the-neck white blouse, black trousers, and cape in 98 degree weather), Erykah Badu, Chuck Brown, and The Roots. 

The year's festival, going down on August 14th at Merriweather Post Pavillon, promises to deliver equally hype moments with performances by Nas and Damien "Jr. Gong" Marley, The Roots, Chuck Brown, The Foreign Exchange, Bilal, Miguel, and King! If you all are not familiar with King, please please check their website, and listen to their song "Supernatural". These ladies are on some other outer space soul music that is unexpected and refreshing. Your hunger for hip hop, reggae and soul will be thoroughly satiated.

Tickets go on sale this Monday, June 6th, so be sure to click over here to get yours.
