State Fair Music: 8.27 – 9.7

STATE_FAIR_MUSICThis will be short and hopefully, sweet. There are many musicians playing the Fair. Some of them are on regular stages, while others are hidden within restaurants. This is a fairly good representation of who is playing where, but it is by no means a complete list, and I didn’t include the Grandstand shows, since they get plenty of mention.

At any rate, get yourself some corn on the cob, a mac n’ cheese cupcake, meatloaf on a stick, sweet corn ice cream, bacon to go, or whatever else tickles your food fancy, pick up a beverage, and enjoy the music along with everything else that the Fair has to offer.

PS: KFAI will be broadcasting from the Education Building from 9am – 9pm on Friday, the 28th and Monday, September 7. Stop by and say hi!

PPS: Thanks to Tim Nyberg for the graphic
