Free music, strawberry frozen yoghurt and a gorgeous summer evening, well what more could you want for a Saturday night?!
The annual Ann Arbor Summer Festival is an international arts event spanning June and July and sees concerts, art installations and speaking events all coming to the university city. Granted I never knew anything about it until we saw that one of our favorite bands - Clairy Browne & The Bangin' Rackettes, were playing a free (double yey) gig there. But it was well worth the drive over for the evening as a whole.
I've been admittedly wallowing in the stress and anxiety that makes up house buying and visa related stuff to the point were I don't particularly want to be doing anything, so Joe had to drag me there but I'm glad he did. With Clairy Browne playing on the Rackham stage with the Graduate studies building of the university as the backdrop we arrived an hour early, soaked up the summer evening, enjoyed some frozen raspberry yoghurt, listened to the band before - Horse Cave Trio (Detroit bluegrass roots band - pretty good too I must say) and enjoyed some people watching.
