Summerfest Day 5

By - Jun 30th, 2009 04:52 pm

It was Kids Fest day at Summerfest on Monday, which meant a lot of the early afternoon saw children running around with punk-colored hair and goodie knapsacks that said “Got Meat?” and country-lovers hiding in Jojo’s Martini Lounge to watch Tim Castle and Young Southern until the George Strait concert began in the Marcus Ampitheater.

It was also a bit more spread out, unlike a weekend time when the crowds get so thick you can’t move. So it was a perfect time to people watch; attendees often outdo themselves in getup and accessories in a show of personality on holiday. Although a few patches of rain subdued the music and enthusiasm at times, the show went on and folks huddled under big shade trees and tents to keep going. Many 14 to 21-year olds braved the changing elements in the front row of the Harley-Davidson Roadhouse for good seats to Spoon.

What follows is a sort of report on the day in pictures. Individual photos can be clicked on for a full view, while a slideshow is provided for moments from the various concerts and events that happened throughout the day.

    14 to 21-year-olds at Spoon? Are you sure that demographic didn’t lean a LITTLE older than that? I’d believe 16 to 24-year-olds. Or 18 to 30-year-olds.

    Maybe I’m just getting old and assume Spoon fans are my age and older.

    The attendees who were swarming in to Summerfest at 9 p.m. for the show were more that older bracket. But the foolhearted and hip will always be the young rock and rollas, so yeah — the ones waiting in the front row baking and soaking all day were teens.
