This year, the Fair was a week shorter, so it was harder to cram in every ounce of fun that I usually derive from my season pass. The last week always brings out the heavy hitters on the Golden 1 Stage, and we’ve got some good music coming up.
Tonight Ã¢â‚¬â€œ KC and the Sunshine Band (Who among us can resist putting on the boogie shoes?)
Thursday Ã¢â‚¬â€œ All American Rejects (You knowÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ for kids. Kids that like to pretend that they have problems)
Friday Ã¢â‚¬â€œ The Commodores (No Lionel, but I am willing to bet that they will bring it. And by it, I mean the funk)
Saturday – Amy Hanaiali’i Gilliom (Possibly the #1 performer of Hawaiian music in the world and, reportedly, an amazing vocalist)
Sunday Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Chicago (Who really kick ass, ask someone who remembers)
Monday Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Weird Al (Do I even need to print his last name? You know who I mean. An amazing show, you won’t be disappointed)

Bummer, the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Ewe TubeÃ¢â‚¬Â. She has a web cam tied around her neck. She is unhappy about it. She is in the petting zoo. Besides a bad pun, nothing to see here.
