In short, this sh*t looks tight.
There's art (duh), fashion, crafts, food, music, theater, dance, DJs and so much more, according to the agenda.

I'll be there Saturday and hope to see it all, but I think I'll be lucky to see a tenth of it.
Right now, I'm excited to check out DIPLO on the turntables, a fashion show or two at Gordan Plaza, the Paul Taylor Dance Company and, of course, Dru Hill and Sisqo (thong-thong-thong-thong-thong!).

She's a finalist in the Janet & Walter Sondheim Prize, a $25,000 award that will be given out at the festival on Sunday night. If there's any justice in the world, she'll win.
