Friday Lunch Cask: FireStone Union Jack
$2 til 2pm. $3 til 3pm. Starts at 11:30am.
The Adams Avenue Street Fair is this weekend and the line-up is actually AWESOME. We are so pleasantly shocked, we can't even tell you. It is mayhem around these parts during this weekend, but fun, air-conditioned (inside BLAH, and we got it tuned up so it's working better now) mayhem. Bands making an appearance include (but are not limited to) Dengue Fever, a weird Beat Farmersreunion, El Vez, Jack "Mr. Bongo" Costanza, Arthur Adams, Cedric Burnside Project, local faves The Creepy Creeps, The Bedbreakers,Black Hondo, The Amandas and more!
Today's cask is Firestone Walker's Union Jack. It will be on at 11:30am and cost $2 till 2:00, unless we run out. That's what we call the Progressive Cask. Because if it lasts beyond 2:00 then it's $3, until 3:00. And so on.
And then tomorrow our little Avenue transforms into a crazy music, craft, junk fair known as Adams Avenue Street Fair. This is what we suggest:
Stroll the Ave, grab some coffee, peruse the hippie jewelry and make sure you're front and center for the Bedbreakers at noon. Stay for the Amandas and then grab a beer and pizza in the air-conditioned comfort of Blind Lady. Head back out to see Black Hondo at 5:30 and then Dengue Fever at 7:30. If you can slip over to see El Vez in between for a bit, all the better. Try to catch the end of Mr. Bongo before heading back to BLAH for more food and/or beer.
On Sunday, take your time getting in, but make it to the Creepy Creeps at 2:45. This should be interesting -- watching them in midday sunshine -- and you maybe need a beer before, or after... or both. After that, your day just might be over. But if it's not, hit up either the Blues stage or the Worldbeat stage for some pleasant sounds. Oh, and the Beat Farmers play at 4:30.
