FLOWER CHILD: Give Festival, Liberty Lands, Saturday
The annual Give Festival, a neo-hippie-esque jamboree bringing together local artists and musicians, celebrated its fourth year in Northern Liberties yesterday. The festival, put together by Brian Nadav, brought together families and friends for a full day (it ran from noon to 10 pm) of eating, drinking and dancing. All day, people filled their cups and opened their ears to local bands, like Audible Eyes, Spinning Leaves and King Britt’s Back to Basics Band, though there was a whole line up of bands that provided a wide variety of music that ranged from blues to folk to psychedelic. There were also fire dancers, once it got dark enough, and “professional” hula hoopers throughout the day. The collaboration of local artists and musicians was no coincidence, the Give Festival was organized to help fund charities put in place to benefit both musicians and artists. This year’s chosen charity was the Music and Mentorship Program as well as The Rex Foundation.
