Twin Cities' Roots, Rock, and Deep Blues Music Festival
The second annual Roots, Rock, and Deep Blues Music Festival builds on the success of last year's event, which coincided with the 25th Anniversary of Patrick's Cabaret. This time out, the theater has partnered with neighbors Harriet Brewing Company and Mosaic Cafe while expanding to three outdoor stages that will be filled with fantastically diverse bands and music. Local rockers Bloodnstuff and the Goondas (pictured) will perform along with the folk-pop of the Brass Kings, the country stylings of the Cactus Blossoms, the experimental strings of the Sans Souci Quartet, the rich blues of Charlie Parr, and 20 other fine acts. The all-day event will also feature craft-beer gardens, assorted food vendors, and tours of Harriet Brewery. And if you haven't got your fill after a long day of music, Palmers Bar will keep the festivities going with an after-party featuring additional live performances.
Sat., July 14, 12-10 p.m., 2012
