Live Review: Ke$ha at the L.A. County Fair (with Semi Precious Weapons)

The Los Angeles County Fair is a symphony of runway noises, marble-mouthed barkers ("ouinnah, ouinnah, chickedinnah"), and screams from patrons atop remarkably vertical loopy rides, and, last Saturday, the roaring synths and electric guitars at Ke$ha's all-live and all-fun solo concert as part of the Toyota End of Summer Concert Series and the pop star's ongoing Warrior Tour.

The LA County Fair is an overpriced substitute for Disneyland that runs the month of September at the historic fairgrounds in Pomona, but it does drag a lot of folks in; it was easy to spot fellow Animals in their glitter and ripped stockings. After a burger-and-fries meal for two ($28) and a small cotton candy ($4), a friend and I made our way via the table-setting competition (sample judges' notes: "tablecloth too small for table"; "dessert fork on left placement facing wrong direction") to the racetrack grandstands where a small stage was set up for two hours of rock and fun ($25 apiece, plus $10 for Fair admission since we bought through Ralph's).
