Who Knew?

It's official--The weather is beautiful. The sun is shining on Georgetown Music Fesival. We now have perfect festival conditions. More happy people show up every hour. Sweet-smelling smoke from the BBQ guy wafts over the Stockhouse Stage, two-seater planes buzz over the Rainier Stage, fans sit in the grass and take it all in at the Georgetown Stage. The layout is thus: An L, formed by backstreets and alleys, with the main (Rainier) stage at the crook of the L. At either end are the smaller stages. The schedule is timed so that bands play the smaller stages simultaneously, with the main stage quiet. When there's a band at the main stage, the other stages are quiet. Very smart.

Shim (pictured above) slayed the main stage crowd earlier. These guys were unabashed heshers, long-haired, mutton-chopped, crude, and oversexed. It was guitar-driven classic rock, not the a $200-a-ticket geriatric cashing-in kind, but in the "we just wanna party with you" guitartastic kind. You know what I mean. If you don't, these lyrics should fill in the blanks:

Love me like an animal
Put it in the cool moonlight
Want me like an animal
Cuz it's feeling like I could go all night

Thank you, Shim, for the true-blue rock. Thanks again for best band name at the festival (followed by Hockey).
