Ok, so I went to the Irish festival since well, im Irish. Now, i havent been in a few years and last I remember it was the North Texas Irish Music Festival. Apparently not anymore.
I used to go to have some drinks, eat some food, and listen to music. I supposed you can still do that, but now you have to wade through armies of Ren Faire people, boothes selling kilts, corny new age hippy crap, and sword shops.
A few music vendors, some celtic inspired art and a ton of bands, thats what it should be. Not a ren faire. Jesus h Christ, what the hell do people dressed up like knights, medieval royalty, and wizards have to do with Ireland. For fucks sake I grew up there and go back almost yearly and, aside from museums, never saw a knight. Its 2006 not 1006.
It needs to be what it was, music. Not another excuse for rennies to dress up and play middle ages.
Anyway, I did see a few good bands, had some food, and got drunk.
