SUN 7/25: Music & Fests

My brain and body did not return from vacation in a timely manner...

A big stretch of Broadway is going to be closed for a street festival with music, dance, food, etc. For the second year in a row, there is a rock/folk/etc concert. Good times!

Girls rock! And there is a fundraiser to keep it affordable for young women to get pointers. Seasoned rockers are joined by a couple new, young bands.

Expect raffles, giveaways, finger tattoo booth, art auctions, and GRCB Merch for sale. Raffle winners are supposed to be announced at the middle and end.

SUN 7/25

How the heck could "RIBS" host a barbecue with two bands called "Dirty Dishes" and "Bloody Knives"? Good work!

On a street down by the train yard, people are invited to hear some amazing hard-synth, shoeqazey, electro-punk sounds after the free barbecue from 2pm to 4pm. (It's a BYOB party.)
