King Biscuit Blues Festival 2012

It's probably safe to say that this year's King Biscuit Blues Festival was the wettest and coldest in the 27-year history of the event, or at least this was the case on Saturday, when the Times took four full buses over the Helena.

But Saturday's crappy weather wasn't a deterrent for the most devoted blues-lovers, nor did it keep headliner Bonnie Raitt from taking to the stage to close things out. That said, it was mighty cold and wet by the time Raitt got rolling.

So a program on how we perceive color featured info about Newton sticking knife in his eye and other amazing scientific facts and was accompanied by a choir that sang the spectrum to illustrate perception.
