Wanderlust Festival on NY Times, ft John Friend! Plus Videos: Andrew Bird, Amanda Palmer, Common, Broken Social Scene, Honey Brothers, Girl Talk…

Update: Funny riff on the Wanderlust theme via NPR.

Update: new vids: loooove this! John Friend & Merry Band & MC Yogi rockin’ out:

“Wanderlust Day 3: Sunday 7/26 – Sianna Sherman and Kenny Graham led a fabulous arm balance class w/ the help of MC Yogi. To our surprise they cut it short and led us to the main stage where we all joined John and MC Yogi in a mini concert that segued into John’s final class that wrapped up the yoga portion of the festival…The AcroYogi crew was awesome! Also featured in this short little clip are KK Ledford, Chrissy Graham and Darcy Lyon…Anusara Yogis sure know how to party!! ;-)”

Missed Wanderlust Festival, which may be the first to expertly combine first-tier nationally-prominent music and first-tier nationally promient yoga in a green-minded context?

I did (though I kept our twit coverage going throughout)—and I paid for my decision not to go day after day, as my friends texted me constant highlights:

Next best thing to going (and I’ll be there next year if I have to start walking now)…is to watch these videos.

Our own Best of Wanderlust video’s comin’ soon, via Alex and Matas, who tried but failed to get me to hop in the backseat for their 15-hour each-way drive. Also, check out our writer Joana Smith’s poetical coverage of each day.

We’ll add more as more get added to Youtube.
