Thankfully, relief from those harsh decisions will arrive Saturday, because no one needs that kind of stress when there is music to be enjoyed, wafting through the muggy air and giving all within earshot a fine reason to one, two, three, four, get their butts out on the floor, yo. National and formerly young MCs Tone Loc, Coolio, and Sir Mix-A-Lot (who, just as an FYI, likes big butts) will follow what hopefully someday will be big names outside of our city limits, Jesse Jackson Five and Tech N9ne. At that very moment over on the other stage, Brody Buster, Corey Stevens, and Joe Walsh will play the blues and rock for those who are not rap-inclined. Currently, it is unknown whether any of them prefer big butts.
Sunday will be another good day for the blues fans, with acts ranging from young to old, starting off with 14-year-old Shannon Curfman and including Taj Mahal, John Mayall and the Blues Breakers, and Bobby Blue Bland. Meanwhile, the Kottonmouth Kings and One Way Ride will service fans of the rock, as will some of the area's finest players, who can be found at the Time Warner Modern Rock Pavilion.
