City of Roses
It's that time of year again, ushering in the Fourth of July in Portland, Oregon with hours of hot blues, rock and roll and zydeco music at the annual Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival at Tom McCall Waterfront Park.
Throughout my life I have been an enthusiast for all kinds of music, and though I've always found the blues not exactly the most "endorphiny" genre of music, LOL, I've long respected it in that I identify blues music as the earthiest of all American music genres, very much the genre that summons the voices of the crossroads, evoking a sort of unbounded functionality that resonates at the heartstrings of every one of us emotionally.
Next Saturday (July 1) and Sunday (June 2) from 3:00-7:00 P.M Pacific Standard Time (6:00-10:00 P.M Eastern Standard Time) I will be anchoring via on-air remote at the festival alongside fellow KBOO volunteer Julie Sabatier, and you can stream on-line live via the link above, yay!
This year will be especially special, for this year's festival will celebrate the wonderful, vibrant culture that is New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, and this festival will be the largest line-up of Gulf Coast artists this side of New Orleans' Jazz & heritage Festival (I'm talkin' to you, dearest serenityblaze, yay, giggles)
For more information, visit the official web-site of the festival above, yay!
