If naked bicyclists and bizarre floats aren’t enough to fulfill your overcast Solstice weekend, then get behind an awesome free music lineup. Check out: http://www.fremontfair.org/music/
Saturday – Loosen up to some funk and jammy ska rock; proceed to mellow out with some folk and indie rock groups (who are on the rise) for FREE!!:
2:30pm- Eldridge Gravy & The Court Supreme
3:45pm- Panda Conspiracy
4:15pm – Ravenna Woods
7:00pm – To the Sea
Then, drink some beers, pretend it was sunny all day, and head to the Big High CD release @ the High Dive. I’ve been interested to see what this pool of Seattle rock vets (and some gnarly beards) have put together, including drummer Barrett Martin (from Screaming Trees and Mad Season), bassist Sandy (he’s in a dozen bands), Mesa and Ari (who have their own duo act). That should be good times, post-watching the sunset over at Golden Gardens.
Sunday – Find a bloody mary [several] and an omelet (Mae’s or Pete’s Egg nest?); get back in the game. Wander around the fair and let me know, which Sunday acts were worth checking out. I’m unfamiliar.
4:00pm – Thaddillac – I was listening to his stuff and its good (and hard to spell 2 ‘d’s and 2 ‘l’s. ok. got it). Thaddeus Turner is Seattle’s guitarist extraordinaire, as lead guitarist for Maktub and touring guitarist for too many great bands to mention (look it up). He’s made a long overdue solo debut and I think it’ll be worth checking out.
You’ve got a busy summer of music ahead.
