A quick update for the fourth day of Summerfest.
It is likely I will not go, even though two favorite bands, Mike Benign Compulsion and Trapper Schoepp are playing. It looks like the temps in Milwaukee may top 100 degrees today, and without a wind off the lake, it is hard to take. Further updates as events warrant.
And on a downer note, esteemed science fiction writer Harlan Ellison died this week. Writer of A Boy And His Dog, the best damned movie Don Johnson ever made, and thousands of other things, including short story anthologies Dangerous Visions and Again, Dangerous Visions. Driftglass has a wonderful remembrance at the beginning of the Professional Left podcast, available on iTunes or here.
To end on a better note, here are videos of the two bands I would go see today, if I was seeing bands today:
Dammit, now I think I’ll go.
