Dancers In The Rain

This weekend I went to Jackfest for a rain-filled day of music galore. I listened to beats by Slick Rick, Born Ruffians, and DJ ?uestlove. Slick Rick was disappointing, the bookers payed around $8,000 for him to play a 20 minute set at 1pm, say what? Slick Rick just seemed bored while on stage, but maybe he was just preoccupied thinking about his court date in New York later on in the day. I was looking forward to hearing Wise Blood, yet it was a no show type of sit. Born Ruffians was pretty good, they played a bunch of old stuff and the crowd was rocking and singing along. Those boys are pretty cute so there were quite a few 'take your shirt off' croons from the audience as well. DJ ?uestlove was a good time. He spun old and new tunes, but I didn't think it was super impressive, any decent DJ could have done his job, but hey, it's ?uestlove from The Roots, man. Student band Pepepiano also did a pretty sweet job, props. All in all, was Jackfest a success? Debatable...
