Missouri State Fair 

Raven Symone, James Taylor, Lynyrd Skynyrd and others. August 10 through 20 at the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia.

A former Cosby kid like Raven Symone is hard to overshadow, but if anyone can do it, it's the one-two punch of James Taylor and Lynyrd Skynyrd. And what better place for these acts to square off than the traditional proving ground of rock and folk and (now) Cosby, the Missouri State Fair? Symone may have charmed us as Olivia, but has she seen fire and rain? Has she been given three steps? Has she ever seen my smiling face and had to smile herself? Can this Raven be changed? Has Symone, the heir apparent to the empire that is show business, ever smelled that smell? Growing up around the likes of Lisa Bonet and the Coz himself, she may have come close, but the title of Mr./Ms. Saturday Night Special inevitably comes down to whose got the most friends. Call out my name, bitch.
