Northwest Folklife Festival
Today, was the annual Northwest Folklife Festival at the Seattle Center. Feeling a need to experience some culture, Clinton, Ian, Seve, Algerae, Mara, Meredith, and I headed on over. There were many independent musicians playing as well as larger bands on stage. The music ranged from Ska/Soul to Folk. There was also plenty of food, crafts, and of course Liberal propaganda. Near the entrance there was a rhythm tent where hundreds of drums and other percussion instruments were gathered and people could come and jump in on a loud drum circle. Essentially, however, this event was the same as all the art festivals at the Seattle Center, a chance for all the hippies to gather and show off their weird skills. It was pretty cool. Afterwards I headed home, but I was met by a very quiet house. So I am now patiently waiting for someone to come home.
