5 things Kitty loves about the Willy Street Fair

Wow! Summer sure went by fast...as evidenced by the fact that it's already time for the Willy Street Fair.

It happens this Saturday and Sunday on Willy Street, with 3 music stages on Saturday and 5 on Sunday. And it's all free!

Here are five of my favorite things about the fair.

1)The music:  I seem to always get turned on to new bands, and expand my musical horizons. This year I'm really looking forward to seeing the Jimmy's as they wrap up the festival on the Main Stage Sunday night. But I'm sure I'll fall in love with another performer or 2.

2)The colors:  It seems everyone is dressed in wild colors, some tie dye, some not. Some people even wear elaborate costumes for the occasion!  If you really want to see a color explosion, get there by 11am Sunday for the parade.

3)The food:  I always get chicken satay from Bahn Thai. This is a requirement.  I also really love the tiny cucumber salad that comes with it.

4)The t-shirts: Every year I buy a Willy Street Fair t-shirt, which supports the Wil-mar Neighborhood Center (as does the entire fair). And I always enjoy perusing the big pile of seconds and random shirts from Wildwood Productions. In fact, one of my festival shirts, which features the lady from Job Rolling Papers, was purchased from Wildwood Productions!

5)The people:  And this is the most important!  I always run into lots of friends--some whom I haven't seen last year's Willy Street Fair. It's great to reconnect...even though we all have that scary thought in the back of our minds. Winter is coming.

"Thank God I'm a Country Boy" John Denver: World's Worst iPod
There was just about universal love for this foot-stomper from John Denver. John Denver had hit after hit in the mid 1970s, and this was one of them, goign all the way to #1 in 1975. Go ahead, crank it up, sing it loud and proud. And maybe swing...

World's Worst iPod: Jump 'N The Saddle Band "The Curly Shuffle"
A silly novelty tune with a jump swing beat took the country by storm--at least parts of it--in early 1984.  A Chicago band called Jump 'N The Saddle scored a #15 with the Curly Shuffle...and it seems a lot of people have some pretty awesome...

World's Worst iPod:The Human League "(Keep Feeling) Fascination
It was almost a clean-sweep this morning for the synthesizer heavy "(Keep Feeling) Fascination") by the Human League.  Everybody was in the mood for a little 80s fun! It made it up to #8 on the charts in 1983, a couple of years after...

World's Worst iPod:Dr. Hook "When You're in Love With a Beautiful Woman"
Here's a song that inspired high-schoolers to act like 12-year-olds back in the late 1970's. The lyric "when you're in love with a beautiful woman, it's hard," was just so darn hilarious!! Dr. Hook had a lot of hits in the...

World's Worst iPod:Escape Club "Wild Wild West"
Remember when we were headed for the 90s..and grooving to the Escape Club? This band from London scored a number 1 hit in 1988 with the song "Wild Wild West." It's probably the only song you remember from that band--but they weren't a...

World's Worst iPod: Wayne Newton "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast"
With Father's Day coming up, we thought we'd choose one of the greatest dad songs of all time.  But since that song wasn't on the iPod, we decided to go with "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast" by Wayne Newton. This song made...

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo
Today was another busy day at Bonnaroo. We started the day off by seeing Shakey Graves. I missed his show in Madison earlier this year so he was a must see on my list. Loved him! Right as he ended, a press conference with Ed Helms, Abigail...

Day 3: Saturday
Saturday was a very busy day! So many Triple M bands to see! So many concerts were back to back, so we did a lot of walking back and forth from the stages to the media compound. If you're ever in need of getting more steps in during the day,...
