Don't let the name fool you, this June's BoneYard Hoedown isn't strictly a country music affair. (It'd be a sight to witness BNLX delivering post-punk in cowboy boots.) With indie rock, DJs, and hip-hop, the ready-to-be-nicknamed event is throwing its hat into the busy block-party format in the coming warm-weather months.
Split between a more live-oriented Saturday, June 14 -- American Revival and Saint Anyway providing the twangiest sounds -- and the DJ-driven Sunday, June 15, the first Hoedown will offer up a parking lot filled with separate beer and wine gardens, and a barbecue menu featuring brats, ribs, whole hogs, and more Southern-style eats.
The BoneYard Hoedown 2014 lineup:
Saturday, June 14
Sunday, June 15
cfans x palladium
Brownie and Wharf
