It’s 3:30 pm on a hot day at Ford Festival Park in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. I’ve been here since 1pm to catch the opening bands, but in truth, I am really excited to see Black Stone Cherry, who should be coming on next. Luckily, the sun keeps going behind the clouds every few minutes, and that gives me a nice break from the sweaty summer heat, (I don’t care what you say about the heat being half the fun of outdoor festivals, sweating is still gross, especially if you’re a girl)….
