By colloquial definition, Sundays are a day of rest, a time to get in touch with your spiritual core, whether through prayer or sitting in a lawn chair with a cheap beer.
And since today is Sunday, it follows that you ought to seek out a holy spirit or spirits of some sort.
"But wait just a second," you say. "I don't drink alcohol."
Way ahead of you there, hoss.
Kurt Vonnegut, novelist and non-believer extraordinaire, famously said, "Music is, to me, proof of the existence of God. It is so extraordinarily full of magic, and in tough times of my life, I can listen to music and it makes such a difference."
So on this Sunday, why not go that route?
The Boise Blues Society's annual Sunday Blues Festival is going down today in Julia Davis Park and will feature music from Chicago's own Studebaker John and the Hawks, Phantasmagoria, James Coberly Smith, Detonatel, Hambone on the Beach, The Hoochie Coochie Men, the Decade Blues Band and more.
It runs from noon-6 p.m. A donation of three or more cans of food is requested.
