This Saturday at the Bristol Harvest Festival they will unveil the “Bristol Au Naturel” calendar, featuring naked residents posed “discretely” at a number of favorite Bristol locales.
We all love the '80s right? Why wouldn't you? Wild hair, overstated duds, amazing dance moves and epic guitar riffs. But here in Vermont (ahem, Addison County) we might not be 100 percent '80s rockers at heart (we'll leave that for the students on the hill). Gotta get us some of that finger-pickin', foot-stompin' bluegrass twang before it's a real party.
Get ready, because the best of both worlds are hitting the stage on Friday night at the Marquis in Middlebury. Yes, that's right, an '80s Bluegrass Hillbilly Ball — get excited!

It’s 10:30 on a Friday night and the lights of faraway Boston bleach the hem of the darkness as I travel at exactly 73 miles per hour toward Logan Airport. My mouth is thick with the sour taste of rest area coffee and my eyes feel like raisins. My companion, a disembodied voice broadcasting from an undisclosed location in California’s Bay Area, wants me to know there’s something wrong in America.
