Farm Aid comes to New England 

Published July 16, 2008 at 3:28 p.m.

For the first time the annual Farm Aid concert is coming to New England, featuring Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews. The show will take place on Saturday, September 20th, in Mansfield MA. Tickets are already on sale for "FarmYard" members and go on sale to the general public July 28th.

I remember back in 1985 when they started out. It was a pretty big deal. That was back when MTV played music videos. Maybe I'll have to take a trek down to Massachusetts for this one.

We could use a little Farm Aid here in Vermont what with the state regulators trying to shut down our composters. Anti-compost, anti-wind farm — I'm starting to feel like I don't know where I live anymore.
