Saturday we rode the motorcycle over to St Petersburg to Vinoy Park for the annual Ribfest concert weekend. It was a long day thanks to the promotor trying to get people there early for old time rockers 38 Special, and then to stay late for more greatness from America, and Three Dog Night.
Thirty Eight Special was the first band we saw and it was great. We strolled right up from and were a few rows from the stage and plopped our chairs down for a rock show. It was worth it to get their early for this band. But I can't say the same for the afternoon filler cover bands.
Its been cool lately with lows in the mid 60's so it was a pleasant and safe ride home on the bike. I sure hope they don't try that stunt with tribute bands next year, or splitting the good rock n roll for first and last. I'm getting old and a 9 or 10 hour event is just too long to enjoy.
