Riverbend Festival 2005 Day 6, 7 & 8 Report

I didn't get a chance to make it to Riverbend on Day 6 due to the fact that my car was in the shop overnight. However, I did manage to catch a ride to see Batman Begins. I must say it was incredible. Anyway, my car is now fixed and running better than ever, as it should be for the price I paid.
Day 7 was somewhat disappointing with nobody noteworthy at all. They only moderately exciting thing that happen is my interview with the classy miss Rue.
Riverbend Day 8 was much better with the highlight being Colin Hay from Men at Work. He was surprisingly good. I especially liked his new stuff. He brought his somewhat English speaking wife along with him and she danced crazy like on the stage the whole time. Motor City Josh played before Colin Hay. I only caught they tail end of their act but it was quite good with a lot of variety. Afterward I when to go see the old folks of the Cumberland Trio. The Trio had about 8 members... so I guess that makes sense. Anyway they played some good folk music and even had somebody dress up in a very huggable lion suit and sit down front with the little ones. After that it was off to the bluegrass sounds of the Biscuit Burners. They were a young group with a female lead singer. I enjoyed listening to them, but it was not enough to keep me awake so I had to go before the end of the set. I took lots of picture. Go check them out.

The biscuit burners were pretty good. It had more to do with the fact that I was tired then anything else.
