I just got an email from Jason (of Incus fame) saying that the New England Culture Fest has been postponed a day. The 5th annual fair trade festival was supposed to start this afternoon in downtown Lowell, but the organizers decided to wait for better weather tomorrow.
There's going to be a fair trade fashion show, dancing in the streets, organic beer on tap, interactive video art installations, salsa lessons, and a really diverse lineup of performers....they include Incus; a Mexican roots band; belly dancers; a flamenco quartet; a hip-hop-and-soul artist; an Afro-Brazilian dance troupe; a house & breaks/drum n' bass DJ; and a
hippie "earthy and organic folk rock" band.
Here are the details:
