Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival – Day 3, the Fourth of July Edition

It’s officially Independence Day and I’m very excited about today’s lineup for the blues festival. The entertainment has been top notch thus far, but today we get to add Janiva Magness and Curtis Salgado into the mix. As well, I have to go see Karen Lovely perform, although I’ll only see half her set so I can go see Chris Thomas King. Can’t wait!
Yesterday was a special kind of awesome around here. Terry Robb and his band were fantastic. The NW Women in Blues were amazing. Loved Ty Curtis. And when I didn’t think it couldn’t get better than Cedric Burnside & Lightnin’ Malcolm (who played a lot of new music from a soon-to-be-released CD), along comes Bobby Rush! I had him standing over me at one point, thrusting his pelvis my way. Yes, I have photographic evidence. Can today really be better than that? I’m sure they’ll find a way.
