CHINA CAT SUNFLOWER FESTIVAL COMES TO KARPELES
Aug. 10 at Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum, Springfield, free.
Even if you’re not into yoga, drum circles or uncompromisingly effervescent vibes, the 19th annual Sunflower Festival has something for you, with five local music talents and a laundry list of art and attire available. Glass Camels brings its well-honed brand of psychedelic groove, and Ouija Brothers plays smooth acoustic jams to cap off a night of solid music. And you don’t have to believe in the magic of Thai yoga to melt under the touch of Siddhi’s massage and assisted stretching. We’re not saying you should trade your dayplanner for bushy beards and patchouli, but don’t knock it till you try it. Celebrate Jerry Garcia’s life, and bring some pocket dough for all that groovy hippie stuff. Doors at 3 p.m.; the first band starts at … you guessed it … 4:20!
