Marquette Waterfront Festival

You've gotta hand it to the folks with the Marquette Neighborhood Association..they've put together a great lineup for this weekend's Waterfront Festival. I'm particularly exited about two of the acts--Robbie Fulks, who plays Sunday afternoon at 2:45, and the Bottle Rockets later on at 6:15. Robbie Fulks is a gifted singer-songwriter who is just twisted enough to keep it interesting.  I've never seen him live, so I'm really looking forward to it. I'd say the Bottle Rockets are going to end the festival with a bang (because of their name)...but that sounds a bit trite. So I'll just say this is rock and roll...wait here's a line I can steal that sums them up perfectly. The Spartanburg Herald says "If Uncle Tupelo is the Beatles of the alt-country movement, the Bottle Rockets are certainly the Rolling Stones. Featuring a brash, in-your-face sound with as much of a Lynyrd Skynyrd influence as Gram Parsons." I'm not sure where Spartanburg is, but I love the quote! I saw the Bottle Rockets twice..once they opened for John Fogerty in Milwaukee..and the second time I saw them at the Annex in Madison and I'm a big fan. The Marquette Waterfront Festival is this Saturday and Sunday (June 11th &12th) at Yahara Place Park, on the shore of Lake Monona where it meets the Yahara River..just a couple blocks off Williamson Street. It's the first of a lot of great Eastside festivals..with plenty of food and beverage vendors. They depend on sales of beer to break even or hopefully make a profit..so don't bring in your own beer. That's just lame. See the full schedule here.

The next Jonny Lang? Quinn Sullivan is the real deal
I was up in Wausau for the Big Bull Falls Blues Fest, and had a great time watching all the great live music. The big surprise of the day was the guy who played at 3pm. He's just 15 years old and is a good friend of Buddy Guy, and even got to play...

World's Worst iPod: Young MC "Bust a Move"
Kitty apppeared to be all alone on her dislike of this song, which made it to #7 on the charts in 1989. Rolling Stone described the song this way: "a G-rated funk-bomb integral to hip-hop's eventual mainstream acceptance." The G-rating probably...
