Rust Library Teen Music Festival

I'm pretty sure Rust Library is the best library ever.Not only do they have an awesome youth room, host great events, and of course, have a really amazing book selection, but they are also hosting a music festival! As some of you know, I have a blog (musicandmoshing),and I'm a huge supporter in local music and helping bands in our area grow. So this teen music festival is incredibly awesome! I'm so excited. If you live in Loudoun County, you must come to this!
