The blues festival formerly known as Tacoma’s Wintergrass has left the building.
It gets worse. Wintergrass will now be in Bellevue. Here’s another giant step backward for the City of Density. Gracious me, what is going on in this town? We just lost a cool music festival to BELLEVUE!
That is disgusting.
They have no business pulling a rainy-season blues event out of the gritty city. It’s getting harder and harder for me to call Tacoma gritty. Who coined that anyway? If it was you, please chime in with justification for said nomenclature. We have an industrial port, our fair share of condemned buildings and a burgeoning meth scene. I guess that’s sorta gritty.
The economy is quietly bouncing back, spurring me to request no further setbacks for Tacoma until after summer. I want positive momentum. I want positive economic development. I want more culture, not less. The Old Town Blues Festival is coming up on July 11th; hopefully people will turn out in droves to show their support.
