The summer might be winding down to a close but that doesn't mean that the music that makes you wanna grab your bike or skateboard and cruise down your nearest boardwalk is ceasing to exist.

Like a growing number of touring bands with loose Bonnaroo ties, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals now headline their own music festival. Held over two days overlooking Burlington, Vermont's picturesque Lake Champlain last weekend, Grand Point North featured a lineup—handpicked by Potter—stacked with relatively unknown acts, many of them local Vermont bands seemingly on the verge of a national breakout--something Potter, from nearby Waitsfield, knows a little about.

  I just love Gloria Steinem!  I was given more reasons to love her last night, after watching the new HBO documentary Gloria: In Her Own Words.  Gloria is the prime example of “the personal is political.”  Throughout the film she offers very personal anecdotes from her life.  Through her intimate accounts with the viewer, it’s almost like having a conversation, as well as a history lesson, with her in your living room. At one point she describes realizing that personal struggles should not have to be a secret.
