Sorry you've gotten your feathers ruffled over the cost of concert tickets. Remember though, if you want to complain about something substantial, write The annointed one about your escalating fuel costs and ask why we keep encouraging illegal aliens to invade our country, health care system and our economy.
The Pleasure Island Seafood, Jazz and Blues festival was never intended to be a kiddie park of petting zoos, donkey rides and ferris wheels. It is an adult venued music event that has grown tremendously over the years. We had Leon Russell last year and have the infamous Greg Allman performing this year with an expected early sellout.
Money hasn't ruined anything except for people like you that want top shelf performance, baby sitting and "Riverfest craft junk" all for the price of a couple of bucks. This is going to be a great time with a lot of great activities and music, so if you can just settle down, hire a baby-sitter and want to see some great adult musical entertainment, shuck out your 40 clams like everyone else and come join us. Just leave your attitude at the baby-sitters.
PS - Just a reminder, don't expect the baby sitter to be satisfied with 50 cents an hour and a 35 cent tip. Times are changing, remember?
