Pride 08 continued

Balloons in Bloom Street.

Another day of the Pride weekend and despite my gloomy predictions the sun shone all day. Amazing.

After eating little and walking/standing around all day I didn’t feel like waiting for Roisin Murphy’s set. Sorry Roisin. But I did watch Australian Abba copyists Björn Again who were great fun and went down really well with a crowd that knew every word of every song. So well, in fact, it would have made sense to drop one of the more turgid acts on the bill and let them play for longer.

Meanwhile, more photos from Saturday are turning up on Flickr.

    Shame on you for missing Roisin! But kudos to you for catching Bjorn Again! They sell out every time they come to Chicago.

    Yes I failed Roisin, unfortunately. Maybe next time.

    Saw this picture and thought of the recurrent pause…
    I think you would also like the guy’s “men” portofolio.

    Well-spotted, Nathalie, thanks! I keep thinking that theme is exhausted then more turn up.
