The third annual Kräftskiva festivities return to the Bachelor Farmer this August. Last year's mix of yellow hats, sumptuous cuisine, and the live acumen of the Shouting Matches won the event City Pages' Best Outdoor Show honors. It didn't hurt that the weather was absolutely perfect on the cobblestones that day.
This year, the event returns for more late-summer revelry on August 2 with music entertainment led by Haley Bonar, who released the fitful Last War earlier this year.
Kräftskiva means "crayfish party" in Swedish, so they'll be served with bibs and flourish, along with Fulton Brewery beers and Marvel Bar cocktails.
Joining Bonar for the day's entertainment are the party-rockin' alt-country fellas of BBGUN, the twangy, space-rock of Night Moves, and DJ Jonathan Ackerman. (And after the dramatic way last year's lineup was unfurled, who knows what type of last-minute additions could come up?)
Kräftskiva. 5 p.m.-10 p.m., Saturday, August 2, at the Bachelor Farmer. RSVP.
