Moisture Festival 2008 @ Hale’s Ales

1 Apr

Sunday we loaded up the family truckster and pointed it north towards Seattle. Having never heard of, and therefore never been a part of the annual Moisture Festival, I thought it fitting to give her a go. The day we went they were showcasing New Old Time Chautauqua (shuh-tok-wuh). At first I was a bit skeptical, but after settling in and realizing it was a bunch of people celebrating total ridiculousness and fun at any and all expense, I was totally sold. Think vaudeville. It’s billed as “a comedy/varieté celebration”. Flying Karamazov Brothers…giant puppets…grown men and women acting the fool…juggling…poetry…scantily clad bodies…singing…dancing…some weird interpretive thing that was actually entertaining…and more. Variety indeed.






All that vaudevillian shenanigans got me thinking…where have our Horns of Destiny been hiding? Does one have to erect The Red Hot Outdoor Palladium (more on this later) to get you out of hiding?

    Horns of Destiny…hmmm, I guess I need to get on the stick with getting this back together. All sorts of cool playing opportunities this summer, with Tall Ships, Art on the Ave, Sixth Ave Farmers Market, and all of the various street fairs around town. Seems like a guerrilla marching band would be a good fit at one or two. Too bad I’m bad at organizing these things and slow at arranging the music. But point well taken. Street bands = awesome.

    Back in the day I used to go visit my cousins in Okanogan to see the Chautauqua crew perform in Omak. Quite the hippie circus, always a fun time!
