The Waterfront Blues Festival has earned its reputation as a weekend fixture over the last quarter-century or so, but this year they've outdone themselves. Over the weekend the event will play host to pioneering bluesman Taj Mahal, Eric Burdon and the Animals, and, best of all, Robert Plant. As in THE Robert Plant. However, it's the MarchFourth Marching Band on July 4 that could steal the show. For Portland newbies, they look like a cross between a macabre 19th century circus and a Pride march, and their music is, to say the least, international. Then there's that huge firework display over the city too. Oh, Portland. I'm swooning. ALEX ROSS
