Like Teenage Gravity

Wow, it’s hot today.  Summerfest is allowing people to bring in their own water; I don’t recall them ever doing  that before.

Or bring in a camelback, to be filled at the fountains (and does anybody besides me think that some creative drunk will be filling one with beer?).  Image below for Wife Sublime, who did not know what a camelback is:

I really do want to go tonight to see the Balconies, a Canuck power-poppy band that D-KW turned me onto.  Braving the heat may be necessary; perhaps it will keep the crowds down a bit; last night seemed to be quite a busy Opening Night.

Here’s a rocker from the Balconies:

If I last, there’s Ben Folds or the Promise Ring later; Wife Sublime tells me that she works with one of the guys from Promise Ring, who have re-formed and are touring a little bit once again.

One down, second on deck, 9 to go.

    I’ve always been a big camelback fan. Actually, I’ve always been a big fan of attaching large amounts of random shit to my body & clothes. I like ALICE gear, velcro, D-Rings, straps, pouches, rucks, vests, pockets and bags. Long before the invention of the camelback I had a number of Bota Bags. There’s just something infinitely tweak-tastic about having all your cool shit hooked on to you somewhere…

    Boy, Bota Bags takes me back. I think Grizzled still has one or two tucked away somewhere. That doesn’t really sound right, does it…

    And although I’m more than familiar with the camelback, I have to say, that photo looks like some kind of padded man-thong…

    the CamelThong. I don’t think that’s going to be a salable concept.

    If I upload nearly 100 pdf’s of the headliners from every side stage from 1967 to 2007, you will automatically become THE destination for the musical history of Summerfest – this is an awesome responsibility. Do you want this list to be searchable? Let’s discuss format and scope.

    just send ’em as pdfs, Z. we’ll worry about processing them later. It may be a project for another day…

    Ran outta gas after a couple daze? Seems…unfortunate.

    All shamble and no brainz?

    Not for me to say. But the narrative has stalled, that seems beyond question…
