Birmingham Folk Festival

The Overalls are playing the Birmingham Folk Festival tomorrow. We play at 1 p.m. at the event which is being held at Avondale Park. I'm guessing the ambient temperature at 1 p.m. will be just slightly less than the surface of the Sun.
I'm not sure what we were thinking back in March when we got the gig. It was in the low 70's with a cool breeze out of the northwest. "Do y'all want to play the Birmingham Folk Festival this year?" "Heck yes!" I can remember us saying. Upon reflection, that may have been a hasty decision.
We played a festival in August about five years ago and I think I lost ten pounds before we got through the set. I had to use a wet-vac to mop all the perspiration out of the guitar.
Jilda is praying for a freak snowstorm to drop a foot of snow on Avondale Park an hour or so before we hit the stage. I'd settle for a big ol' fluffy cloud the size of Rhode Island to inch over the park bringing with it a gentle breeze out of the northwest.
