The Henry Clay People did a wonderful job at the 2nd annual Rock n' Roll Circus. With more than a dozen bands performing, free popcorn, face painting, and costumes and decorations in full force, this year's circus was exhilarating. Bands such as Downtown/Union, the Little Ones, Andy Clockwise, and of course the Henry Clay People turned in great sets alongside a slew of other bands performing full-on electric sets or side stage acoustic sets on the patios of the Echo and Echoplex. Attendance seemed down, or at least nowhere near capacity, which is a shame because the event had none of the pretentiousness that so often accompanies rock shows and instead truly felt like a community event. I for one am looking forward to next year. — Benjamin Hoste
