It's in Grant Park in Chicago. Now, I'm not sure yet if I will be able to go, but I would like to, and I know people who live in the area. Please do tell me if you would like to go with me. Oh, please please please. Let's do this Roadtrip Nation style; you know, let's act like we're the twenty-somethings we are and just go out and do something we really want to do. Before we have to do all that other stuff first.

What do you say?

I can't make it, I'll be taking a flight to San Anton in September and will be taking a couple of days off for it, so I can't take any time off in August... but I hope you go. Sounds like a great experience.

And I'd like to state for the record that Gnarls Barkley might be the best band name EVAR.
