Looking ahead to Summer Fest

-So much going on at Summer Fest in The Junction next Friday-Saturday-Sunday, you just might have to go each day (and night). Besides the music lineup first mentioned here 2 weeks ago, the Summer Fest website has lots more details now about the rest of the fun (including what sounds like an absolute blast on Friday, with the Rat City Rollergirls, a car show, and more) plus a full list of vendors and exhibitors.

-Many community groups will be there Saturday & Sunday in hopes of grabbing your attention. Among them, the relatively new (and growing) Sustainable West Seattle promises a photo display of “sustainability in action” around WS; skatepark advocates will hold court, gather signatures, and show their stuff at a “temporary skatepark” (Wells Fargo parking lot) And if you missed the recent WS Emergency Preparedness event, just stop by the Megawatt/Morgan Community Association booth, where you’ll be able to get a free CD of the key info presented there (including our suggestions for getting online in times of trouble, and what you can do now to be sure you’ll be able to).

    Well, looks like John Doe is off the lineup. So is White Trash Whiplash and the Tall Boys. Arrrghhhh!
    Might as well head over to the Strawberry Festival on Vashon that weekend.

    I can’t wait to hear some of the music line-up once again. Last year, the south stage had some pretty good groups for a Friday afternoon. I hope there will be better food booths this year, last year sucked. Gnerally, I hope there will be better booths period and not those booths that promote a sign that just says something like Cingular or Herbal supplements with nothing in it, what a waste of time and space those are. I’m not there to sign up for a new cell-phone plan or buy supplements, I’m their basically for something good to eat and listen to decent music. The beer garden also sucked last year it was rinky dink. It was so crowded in West 5, I just moved on…

    Thanks Jan, very unique sound. I bet the live show is awesome.
    It looks like something has happened with the booking of Summerfest. Originally they were promoting John Doe as the headliner. Now there is no mention of him whatsoever. Also others are missing that were once on the website only a couple weeks ago.
    Hey W.S.S.F promoters! What gives?

    Todd…the live show is incredible…I’ve seen them quite a few times over the last few years…and then sometimes just 2 or 3 play at some venues. I think the two lead singers and the singer/flamenco dancer will be appearing again at Cafe Rosella in White Center on July 20…worth going to hear them…and it’s free :)

    Todd – we think we’ve figured out what you’re wondering about. Until a few weeks ago, LAST YEAR’S musical lineup, which included John Doe, was on that page of the WS Summer Fest site (we know, we checked the site weekly for a couple months before WSJA prez Dave sent us the music lineup for this year PRIOR to its posting).

    thanks WSB! Jokes on me I guess. Funny.

Sorry, comment time is over.
