[Recommended] Live Music at Atwood Summerfest this Weekend

This Saturday the 2000 and 2100 blocks of Atwood Avenue (in front of the Barrymore Theatre) will be rockin' with great live music on two stages...that's right, it's Atwood Summerfest time again. It's one of the city's best neighborhood festivals..with yummy ethnic food, icy cold beer..and fun for the kids too with face painting, arts and crafts, and those inflatable jump-around thingies! The festival raises money for the Goodman Community Center (formerly known as the Atwood Community Center), so you can get a little wild, and feel good about yourself at the same time. Here's the line-up:  Harmony Bar/Capital Brewery Blues Stage 12:00-12:50 pm Kristy Larson Honky Tonk Band: A little country music never hurt you! The Kristy Larson Trio won a couple of Madison Area Music Awards in 2009..and it looks like she'll bring a few more musicians this time around! 1:10-2:00 pm  Piper Road Spring Band: How about some bluegrass? The Piper Road Spring Band has been playing together for more than 35 years, with bluegrass that's far from traditional. They've been known to weave in some Grateful Dead inspired jams! 2:20-3:10 pm  The Alex Wilson Band: Alex grew up immersed in the Milwaukee/Chicago blues scene and picked up the guitar at the age of 5. He's a little older now and ready to impress you with everything from Beale Street blues to Chicago swing. 3:30-4:20 pm  The Midwesterners: At the border of classic rock and country--that's where you'll find the Midwesterners. Led by veteran Madison musician Richard Weigel, it also features the highly charged guitar of Ernie Connor from the Rousers. 4:40-5:30 pm Altered 5: This Milwaukee based blues band takes pop and rock songs and "bluesifies" them! This is one of Gabby Parsons' favorite area bands. 5:50-7:00 pm  Jim Schwall/Andy Ewen Band: What a combo! Jim Schwall was half of the famed Siegel-Schwall Band that played places like the Fillmore..sharing the bill with folks like Janis Joplin and the Doors. And Andy is the seemingly ageless guitar player and singer for the band Honor Among Thieves. Sparks have got to fly when these guys get together. Maximum Ink / Ale Asylum Rock Stage times not listed, but this is the schedule in order The Shtetlblasters: Madison's very own electronic klezmer band. The Kingtown Rockers : Madison band described as reggae with a touch of metal. VO5 : They want you to party like it's 1978! A funk/disco/dance band from Madison. Soul Shaker: Blues band from Madison. ..self-described as "dirty blues rock for yo dirty minds." Influences include  Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, Humble Pie, and Muddy Waters. Beatallica:  Beatles meet Metallica. 'Nuff said.

Gotta love the '80s! Depending on who you're talking to, Kajagoogoo's "Too Shy" is either a song that defines the decade, in a good way, or it's a song that gives all other '80s songs a bad name. It made it to #5 on the charts in...

World's Worst iPod: Mac and Katie Kissoon "Chirpy Chirpy Cheep"
There was a lot of love this morning for a song that made it up to #20 in 1971 for the brother sister team of Mac and Katie Kissoon. The pair hailed from Trinidad and this was their only Top 40 hit.
