Summerfest did indeed live up to expectations.
At Skillet, I remembered how to headbang from my middle school years, complete with drowned-rat style hair. Only complaint: mediocre fireworks that went on entirely too long.
Ska Day on Wednesday was a whole different sort of fun. I witnessed a Skank Pit and all sorts of other shenanigans. Reaching Scarlet tickled me pink, especially that adorable bassist. Less Than Jake was a bit rough around the edges, and I couldn't see very well, but I was getting warmed up. The sounds of Reel Big Fish made me glad to be out and about on a work night, and it amused me to see them play the crowd favorites multiple times. Only complaint: not putting sunscreen on my back.
