So yeah, we get back into downtown Baltimore and walk around lower Light Street. We wait for a half hour for the bus in the heat.
And then we’re greeted with acrobats!
“I would never want to live anywhere but Baltimore. You can look far and wide, but you’ll never discover a stranger city with such extreme style. It’s as if every eccentric in the South decided to move north, ran out of gas in Baltimore, and decided to stay.”
In this way, at Artscape you will see Natty Boh,
As we passed the game lead shouted, “Right foot olive!”
Then, a staple of Artscape, tricked out artsy cars,
I dig this,
I dig that,
Wait, what is…
is that a cockroach????
There were children beating up on Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tubemen,
This is my trademark look. It’s consistent in my approval with selfies.
Here’s some terrible footage from an amateur photographer.
As the show ended, they brought all their instruments with them into the crowd and my friend and I took the opportunity to get to the T-shirt stand, I love band tees.
But wouldn’t you know it, the band travelled!
I was so close I could TOUCH each and every one of them….
I showed restraint though, and just kept tapping my photograph button on my phone.
So after the absolute bliss of the show, we walked around a bit more.
|These are the faces of exhausted festival girls.|
And then, as we went back the way we came, the aerial acrobats were still at it, but with the twist of chains and giant hula hoops.
In all, it was a pleasant and exhausting and expensive time. I enjoyed it. If you haven’t been to Artscape, you should go, there’s something for everyone. In closing, I’ll leave you with my favorite Ozomatli song.
