Dang, the booking of Drake is kinda cool. Not totally sold on him but he’s is the rising star right now. Interesting…

Mike Oz says:

What? Tone Loc and MC Hammer on the same stage? Or all the females that are gonna be at the Drake show?

Mike Oz says:

Yeah, it’s pretty big for them. I thought they were gonna go after New Boyz or something like that, cuz that fits what they usually do on the hip-hop night. This is a big jump up from that.

big business…thats dope!

Chris Isaak, huh?

It’s about time he gets here. Lord knows he’s played every other fair around.

I heart “Wicked Game.”

MsJoey says:

I’m totally bringing my Funky Cold Medina!

Someone PLEEEEASE take me to see Chris Isaak. Please?

I’m poor. But I should get to go see him. Yes I should.

Right. Now that I’ve humiliated myself, I’ll retreat back into blogosphere ether.

Kristin says:

I am so going to see Drake at the fair. I want to see Jimmy Brooks from Degrassi! Ha. My husband and I are obsessed with the reruns of that show,(who knows why) and its crazy to me that he is a rapper (a Canadian rapper!).

Anthony M. says:

I hope he brings Manny with him. She’s smokin!

Nice lineup, although it saddens me to see that the longstanding tradition of the concerts being FREE with Fair admission (excluding Festival de Mariachi) has finally eroded away completely. Not to be all nostalgic or anything, but one used to be drawn to the fair by its (equally good) free entertainment lineups. For example, Chris Isaak. It’s obviously the end of an era in any case. And ahead? scalped tickets and Table Mountain Theater $???
