The first weekend in October is considered Fall Foliage

Weekend in North Adams, Mass., and thousands of tourists rush to the city for our annual parade, craft fair, art, and road races.

Now that my kids are grown I no longer take advantage of all the Fall activities that my community has to offer, but this year a new event¬†was added that forced me to drag my usually unsociable self out of the house and be part of the community…

The first Dog Costume Parade took place on Saturday, October 2 and it was amazing.

I Volunteered at Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival & All I Got Was This Lousy T-shirt

Some of you may remember the scathing article I wrote about Wilco’s performance at Tanglewood a few years back, so naturally when I heard the band was organizing a festival at Mass Moca, located in my hometown of North Adams, I figured Jeff Tweedy was coming to kill me.

Not only is Mass Moca the largest contemporary art museum in the country, but it’s also a 4-minute walk from Buntology Headquarters.

While a weekend pass was reasonably priced at $100, there was no way I was paying to see¬†Wilco perform live again I wasn’t invested enough in the lineup to drop that kind of cash. So instead I volunteered!
