TO DO LIST: Sweetlife Festival THIS SATURDAY!!

For local lovers of live music, this weekend marks the kickoff of what is truly the most wonderful time of the year:  FESTIVAL SEASON!  On Saturday, sweetgreen, purveyors of healthy bites in the DC area since 2007, will present Sweetlife:  A Music + Food Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD.  The lineup looks delicious!  Whether your auditory taste buds are craving futuristic soul (Solange), the best contemporary blues (Gary Clark, Jr.), indie rock royalty (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), new hip hop classics (Kendrick Lamar), or orchestral pop/rock bliss (Phoenix), Sweetlife has something on the menu for you! 

And that’s just the main stage.  A music festival wouldn’t be complete without great DJs (John Thornley of US Royalty and Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem, to name just two) at the 9:32 DJ Lounge, or a plethora of excellent acts appearing on the Treehouse Stage, which will feature future festival headliners and music magazine cover stars (including Shark Week, MS MR, Youth Lagoon, & Holy Ghost!).  And since sweetgreen knows you’ll work up a thirst and an appetite, there will be great breweries on location as well as food trucks and artisans galore.  So dig out your hula hoops and glow sticks, get your face paint and your finest new tutu, because Sweetlife is the first “can’t miss” event of the season!
