September 24, 2010

The fests continue! And despite what the thermostat might have you believe, it is officially fall. So get out, enjoy this crisp 95-degree-weather we’ve been having — although rumor has it there could be some quasi-normal temps this weekend — and see some good bands. You’ve got plenty of opportunities from GonerFest to the Levitt Shell and everywhere in between. Check it out:
