Update #1: Ain't Nothin But the Blues TONIGHT
Okay, so I am behind. This is a very busy weekend, as you already probably know, what with the Lincoln festivities and the Illinois Shakespeare Festival continuing and the usual Things to Do and People to See when the weather gets this hot and everybody wants to hit a pool or make a picnic or something that screams SUMMER.
Well, have I got SUMMER for you. It started yesterday, but it continues today and tonight, till 11:30 pm if their Facebook page is correct. "It" is the Ain't Nothin But the Blues Festival, with food and merch and harmonica, guitar and vocal lessons, so that you, too, can get down with the blues.
But the big deal is the acts coming to perform for you, of course. Tonight's performers include Cee Cee James, Bryan Lee and Janiva Magness.
Ain't Nothin But the Blues takes place at the General Electric Employee's Club, 1750 General Electric Road, in Bloomington, and you are invited to sit in a lawn chair or stroll around the lake to listen to the music.
All the details are here, including ticket prices and where to park and sponsors and vendors and bios of the performers.
And I'm sorry I'm tardy, because I'm sure this is a great party and a cool way to beat the heat.
