“It rained at Woodstock, and it might rain at KidStock too,” one of the event’s announcers said from the stage just before headliners Milkshake took the stage yesterday afternoon.
But the fleeting showers didn’t dampen the spirits of the dancing toddlers at Garrett Heights Elementary-Middle School in Hamilton-Lauraville yesterday, nor those of Milkshake frontwoman Lisa Mathews or the band, who gamely played their high energy hits for about an hour.
Besides Milkshake, we got a chance to see guitarist Tracey Eldridge with violinist John Glik, and the Little Maestros Band from Bethesda. We were in a drum circle tent, playing West African djembes and dunduns when the heavy rain hit. We just pounded our drums a little harder and waited it out. Our forebears at Woodstock would have been proud.
