Life is good Festival 2010
September 11 – 12, 2010
Prowse Farm – Canton MA

Featuring:  Jason Mraz, Ben Harper, Guster, OK Go, Brett Dennen, Mavis Staples, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Ziggy Marley, Corinne Bailey-Rae, Galactic, Ozomatli, Dr. Dog, Donavon Frankenreiter, Sierra Leone’s Refugee All-Stars, Toubab Krewe, Eli Paperboy Reed, Will Dailey & The Rivals, The Laurie Berkner Band, The Sippy Cups, & They Might Be Giants

Do it for the kids!  The music world has festivals for every walk of life from hipsters to metalheads so…why not the kids?  The fine folks at Life is good decided to give it a try and gave Boston a brand new festival to hopefully look forward to for years to come.  The two day event kicked off on September 11-12 and raised over $600,00 for the Life is good Kids Foundation while offering up the most eclectic two day gathering of bands, performers and artists alike to deliver positive vibes all around.  The good karma runneth over! 

Proving that mixing family and fun doesn’t have to be a recipe for bland the festival brought out some of the best from the music world while keeping the kids fully involved with their own tent and kid oriented entertainment. From a musical perspective, the festival brought out the best of the best from all genres – from the headliners – Jason Mraz and Ben Harper, to the local favorite Will Dailey & The Rivals and Grace Potter & The Nocturnals to one of our personal favorites here at TWRY –OK Go, as cliché as it sounds, there really was a little something for everyone.

Taking place on the grounds of Prowse Farm in Canton, MA, it seemed to be a perfect and picturesque locale for the event giving the 30,00 people who attended a chance to check out everything Life is good had to offer.  Proving that truly Life is good we’re already looking forward to next year!

TWRY photographer Dave Barnum was onsite to catch the sights and sounds of the festival.  Check out his galleries to get your own dose of the warm fuzzy feeling that Life is good induces!

Guster Announces “Lost & Gone Forever Ten Year Anniversary Tour”‏

Boston-bred band Guster have just announced their nine-date headline tour, Lost & Gone Forever Ten Year Anniversary Tour, which will kick off 10/28 in Charlotte, NC and wrap on 11/27 at the Beacon Theater in New York.  This anniversary tour will be Guster’s only headline dates of this year.

Ten years have passed since the band’s release of Lost and Gone Forever which in their words “helped us graduate from our van to a bus”.  These nine very special evenings with Guster will include two sets, one of which will be the album in its entirety and no opening act.

Guster has specially chosen each venue as they have historical significance to the group.  Higher Ground in Vermont (now in new location) was where they launched the original “Lost & Gone Forever” tour.  Ten years ago at the Orpheum, in Boston, Guster put on an epic Halloween show wearing tuxes and pretending it was New Year’s Eve, Y2K.  The Beacon in New York harkens back to a time when they played Thanksgiving Weekend in NYC five years in a row.

Tickets for these shows will go on sale this Friday, July 17th.  Ticket purchases are available at Ticket Master and Live Nation:
