Fashion thoughts for summer festival performances

Yesterday the organizer of a big Midwest festival called to invite me to be on the bill this summer.

The festival has some "heritage acts" from the Sixties and Seventies, bands that are still together and still touring that started out and had hits during the early decades of rock and roll.

And they're adding in some emerging artists like me.

I am psyched, man.

He asked if I do any "vintage" covers in my concert sets.

On our Europe tour last month I was playing "You're A Big Girl Now" by Bob Dylan (my one and only hero), "I Don't Want To Talk About It" which is well known as a Rod Stewart recording, and ending shows with Dylan's "I Shall Be Released".

The festival organizer was happy.

We also talked about the look of the festival and I said I'd get into my Woodstock vibe for the show.

Which brings me to one of my favorite subjects which in my mind is a whole intellectual and creative pursuit called "what I'm going to wear for my next tour".

I find this topic to be endlessly captivating.

I feel like I have three basic vibes in my repertoire.

I got the fashion-girl-slash-Elton-John thing like this:


I got the New York City punk rock vibe like this (with a tutu):


And I got the fashion-girl-gone-western thing like this:


So the fun fun fun is to think about what to wear on stage this summer..and on the road trips from stage to stage!

If you see me around town, I'll most likely be doing a test run of some hybrid of all of the above, based of course, on what's already in my closet.

You are what you dream!
