On the weekend of May 22, Boston Calling Music Festival returned for their annual spring concert.
The second day of the festival opened with Krill, who answered a couple of questions asked by the audience. They were very open and friendly. Marina and the Diamonds came at about 6 p.m., opening things up with their single “Bubblegum Bitch.” Marina was dressed in a purple halter-top, a pair of matching pants, and a purple headband that lit up with the word ‘Froot’, which is the name of their newest album. There was also a big, life-sized apple on the side of the stage. Marina then asked the audience for some help wishing one of her bandmates a happy birthday by singing to him. They closed with one of their famous hit “How To Be a Heartbreaker.”
Boston Calling had yet another successful run this weekend. The line-up had well-known and well-loved notables, like My Morning Jacket, Beck, and the Pixies, sprinkled into a diverse and experimental range of performers. Beautiful weather, good food, and great music made for a relaxed atmosphere and an overall enjoyable weekend.

I’ll let you in on a little secret: sex is great. It relieves stress, boosts your immune system, lowers blood pressure, and, if you’re doing it right, it’s one hell of a work out. Sex is also a great way to connect with someone. It’s about mutual pleasure—or, it should be.
