I just got back from the Amherst Commons, where the Extravaganja will be held this Saturday.

Meanwhile, a lot was going on this past weekend. Beatnik figure Amiri Baracka (Leroi Jones) spoke at Amherst College Saturday, as seen in this picture by S.P. Sullivan.

Sullivan also captured this classic image of Motown Bennie the Bucket Man performing at UMass yesterday in formal attire.

Northampton's David Pakman greets Governor Deval Patrick at Smith College Sunday.

The Republicans had a meet the candidates shindig at Storrowton Tavern in West Springfield, as shown in these pics by Sheila Pecor. The media was primarily interested in gubernatorial frontrunner Charlie Baker.

Congressional candidate Dr. Jay Fleitman, radio dude Adam Rivers and State Auditor candidate Kamal Jains.

Legislative candidates Tom McCarthy and Josh Carpenter.

Did anyone see any stranded looking rock stars in downtown Northampton Saturday night? A brokedown limo across from the Iron Horse.

My friend Luke and his band at Sam's.

A beggar in front of the Haymarket.

These bushes in big cement pots stand outside the UMass library.

Someone scrawled this message warning about them.

But not all.

Beck has been in the studio looking for new sensations.
