KING BISCUIT BLUES FESTIVAL
11 a.m. Downtown Helena. $40 (three-day pass).

OK blues-lovers, here it is: King Biscuit. One of the best blues festivals anywhere draws nigh with what I think is fair to say are some of the most anticipated headliners in the festival's history: Bobby Rush on Thursday, Taj Mahal Friday and Bonnie Raitt on Saturday.

Of course, in addition to these great acts, you get the whole experience: walking around Helena, turkey leg in one hand and beer in the other, catching any one of a number of great up-and-coming acts and just generally letting the good times roll.

This year, KBBF has coordinated with festivals on the other side of the river for several days' worth of blues-related goings-on.

If you haven't already purchased your ticket on the Times Blues Bus that will be carting folks to and from the festival on Saturday, you're too late. We filled up four of them this year. Try us earlier next year.
