I've lost count of how many of these Jamboree things I've been to, but I will say this - Here's hoping, that from now on, Q101, WKQX, 101.1 on your FM dial in Chicago, playing modern rock, alternative, or whatever it's called these day, will have their Jamboree festival on a Saturday. For the longest time it was held on a Sunday, but for the last two years it's been on a Saturday, and for the last two year's the weather's been nearly perfect. This year brought mostly sunny skies, me feeling just a little bit older, and I brought along The Dude on the Left to help write the review and Big Cooter to, well, I'm not really sure why I brought along Big Cooter, but I unleashed the two of them on the crowd while I handled the photo thing. Yea, they missed a couple of bands along the way, but I caught them all. So, read along, jump around, while The Dude on the Left and myself work to relive a long day mostly in the sun.

The Dude on the Left
Well, long time no see. The Dude on the Left (I just love to refer to myself in the third person) has crawled out from under his rock to review the 1999 edition of Q101's Jamboree. This is the fifth year that Chicago's "alternative rock" station has held this all day music festival. This happens to be the first year that I went that it wasn't rainy and/nor cold The Dude on the Right got me and Big Cooter some tickets so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to see what the kids are listening to these days. The show consisted of two stages, the main stage in the pavilion and the Dr. Marten's (second) stage. The Dr. Marten's stage (a fenced off area in a parking lot) featured the smaller bands, but in many cases a more pumped up audience. The mosh pit formed here during the first band (Puya at 1:00) and didn't let up until the last band finished up (Orgy at about 8:00). Even then, the show wasn't done yet as more excitement finished up the night under the pavilion. Enough introduction crap, let's get to Puya.
