Good Music!

Went to the "Gathering of the Vibes" music festival on Saturday. It was great! Lots of colorful sites, smiling people, and good music. Les Claypool was up there, slapping his bass. He actually had an odd hybrid between a banjo and a bass he called his "bassjo". By the way, if you never heard of Les Claypool - google and listen immediately (and hang your head in shame for listening to pop rock these last 15 years). Bob Weir was also there, and lots of other bands.
Here are some pics for your groovy pleasure:

Some interesting concert wear. They insisted Dorothy was alive and well.

Some dancing girls and the standard "guy with exposed beer gut"

Some weird light-stick-man thing that briefly hovered above me. I think he was looking for his car.

Les Claypool on stage. That's him all right, clear as a bell!
So thanks, Vibes, for a cool day of music and sights!

What a fun day!

And I absolutely refuse to feel guilty for my music choices ;-)

Lisa - it was fun! And of course don't feel guilty if you like pop-rock - well...maybe a little tinge (just kidding)

A very popular outdoor music event, and nice weather !

I really like your picture of the light stickman too.
