Dar Williams, write up by kathy
August 20, 2006, Lowell, MA
This past weekend Chris and I trekked up to Lowell, MA to see Dar Williams at their outdoor Summer Music Series. It was a gorgeous day, and tickets were cheap, so we thought…why the heck not??
Lowell MA is an artsy mill town. It being such, there were quite a few frighteningly barren areas of empty storefronts (the dead mill town part)–and then quite a few beautiful, artsy areas (the artsy part). We passed a Jack Kerouac monument (apparently he briefly stayed in Lowell?)-and tried to take pictures, only to find out that the battery to our digital camera wasn’t properly charged (phooey!). There are several art museums in Lowell, the most intriguing of which was a revolving art museum! If we had more time we would have gone in.
