Why I love the idea of Summerfest: In the span of one hour on a random Thursday night during the biggest music festival in the world, you have to choose between Alejandro Escovedo, Ingrid Michaelson, and Marie Digby. Later that same night, you'll get to choose between Gomez, Gavin DeGraw, Lucinda Williams and the Plain White T's. All for a flat entry fee of $15.
Why I find Summerfest very trying in practice:
1. The crowds -(See pic)
2. The technical difficulties -

3. But perhaps most importantly, the escalating beer prices! Grrr... -
