It's time for festivals!!!! City of Trees, Punk in Drublic, Aftershock and it's all going to be Louder Than Life!!!
Quite a few festivals are coming up, beginning with today in downtown Sacramento, and happening right now: Farm to Fork festival on Capitol Mall. Lots of opportunities to eat well, and some good music too!
Then tomorrow, at Papa Murphy's Park, Cal Expo, Sacramento, it's City of Trees, presented by Radio 94.7 and headlined by Blink-182, and also featuring Dreamcar and many others, including a set of Sacramento musicians and some new sounds to discover! If you haven't seen the entire lineup, here it is, and I think you might still be able to get a ticket.
Then (also at Papa Murphy's Park at Cal Expo), on October 15th, the Punk in Drublic festival tour stops off in Sac, with NOFX, Flogging Molly, Goldfinger and many more bands. Plus, of course, all the craft beer you can imagine and probably more than that. Check out all the details here and don't forget to buy your tickets!
And then... drumroll... October means Aftershock!!! The weekend of 21st and 22nd October, (just before my birthday, please bring gluten-free cake!) Aftershock takes over Sacramento's Discovery Park, with not only huge metal and rock bands, but also food, food, and even more good food; Maynard James Keenan's wine at the Caduceus Wine Garden, Heavy Grass (the loudest weed brand in the world), free samplings of Monster Energy drinks... the wonderful Music Experience for kids and young adults and musicians of all ages... Dyin' to Live and FXCK Cancer, bringing some wonderful experiences and help to people who are fighting cancer.
If you haven't gotten your Aftershock tickets yet, what the heck are you waiting for? Ozzy will be there. Nine Inch Nails. A Perfect Circle. Stone Sour. Five Finger Death Punch. Marilyn Manson. Highly Suspect.... and oh so many more great bands. Check out the full lineup!
And in case you fancy jumping on a plane with me next weekend, on the other side of the country there is Louder Than Life in Louisville, Kentucky! Prophets Of Rage, Incubus, Gojira... here's the full lineup to tempt you!
The next few weeks are going to be loud. Very, very, loud!!!
