Not even nature's spectacle could keep The Flaming Lips and Sonic Youth from rocking the State Fair last night.
We managed to get in some cheese curds before the sky turned almost black and then that sickly green that signifies a fantastic thunderstorm. I won 60 tickets in the arcade while we waited out the storm. Oh, the prizes available to me were endless. "What did you get?" "Mustache comb. You?" "Fake mustache. Wanna comb it?" I settled on three plastic rings.
Things cleared up in time for the show and the weather ended up beautiful the rest of the night, even if my feet were still wet when I got home at midnight.
