I was reading about the Wattstax Music Festival today (trying to find the documentary actually) and I came across this on youtube….While it may not be all that kitschy, it’s so super fly that I HAD to share it here…..YOU GO, Bar-Kays and that goes double for the fine women shaking it in the audience! Crap, I don’t how to share something from youtube anymore, so here’s the link and a pic…10 buck says Allee will add a better way to view this before she posts yet another example of my acute and predictable  ineptitude…Thanks QoK!!!!!!

    I worship at the throne of Wattstax. I have it playing on my tv screens a lot when people at parties. It came out on DVD a few years ago. It’s so much more than a music festival film – though the performances, fashions and hairdoes are wayyyyyyy beyond fantastic. It’s also an incredible look at LA and pop culture in the early 70’s. Best festival film ever.

    I love this movie! Isaac Hayes’ entrance is worth watching the whole movie. Fantastic. I wish Shaft was my theme song!
