Bad news, bad news. Harley Fest has taken it’s ticket pricing cues from Lolla rather than Summerfest, and the basic ticket price is 79 bucks for a 2 day pass. No 1 day gigs.
I was pretty jazzed to see Gaslight Anthem when they played there this Friday, but it is not to be. The weekend is not destined to work for a two day pass, and that’s way too steep, even to see a favorite band unless it’s REM or the Mekons.
Sigh. Oh well. Maybe I’ll get drunk and mow the lawn.
In the meantime, here’s a Milwaukee band that I finally saw at Summerfest, Juniper Tar. I am liking them, and you should too, I figure.
