Sunday Soul - the Brooklyn Soul Festival

I just found out about the Brooklyn Soul Festival this last week and am seriously considering making a pilgrimage to NYC to check it out. It's taking place on August 28th and 29th and features a line-up of some sweet soulful musicians, both young and old, including Otis Clay, Barbara Lynn, Maxine Brown, Roscoe Robinson, Hermon Hitson, Eli "Paperboy" Reed and the True Loves, and the Sweet Divines. The bill is split between the two nights, with DJs spinning 45's after the live musicians pack it up to keep the party going until 4 AM. On top of the listening part, you'll get a chance to shop for some grooves to bring home with you at the vinyl fair on Saturday afternoon.

Any readers out there planning on attending and want to possibly meet up? Drop me a line and we'll see if we can get our wires connected (especially if you know Brooklyn and don't mind playing tour guide - or if you know a cheap spot to spend a night or two).
