Full Circle Revue 1

What does Motown have in common with Chinatown in "the town?"

Funk.

I past through Chinatown every day, so in some ways, I'm used to "the funk." But on Sunday, August 28, I was shocked at the sounds I heard penetrating the windows of my AC Transit bus. I hopped off the bus to find the Full Circle Revue on stage playing soulful hits, from Motown to P-Funk.

Besides those acts on the Popular Stage, there were plenty of vendors and other performances at the Chinatown Street Festival.

This event always makes me want to study the Chinese language. Enjoy a slideshow of photos from the event.
