Happy In Bag

A guy in front of me in a long line at Rockfest had the word "Hatred" tattooed to the back of his neck. His tipsy female companion told me he received the marking while in prison. It's true that many of the 50,000 people who attended last Saturday's festival are a bit rough around the edges. Yet with only a few exceptions, Rockfest crowds are remarkably friendly and docile. I missed this incident, but I caught the conclusion of an alleged tasing. Witnesses applauded as police carried the collared man away.

    hmmm... the crowd Friday at the Blue Room was well represented by youthful patrons. No need for security forces there. How much did Rockfest spend on security? Probably less then will be spent for this weekend's Rhythm and Ribs Festival in the 18th and Vine district.
