Mount Pleasant Music Fest This Saturday

Ring in Spring with more great music, this time, ultra local style. Maybe you couldn't get into the Sweetife Fest. Perhaps you don't frequent the club and bar scene. And for years we couldn't even see a live band in our own neighborhood restaurants. Well, this Saturday you can literally roll out of bed and hit up a free concert just blocks away from where ever you live in Mount P.

The Mount Pleasant Music Festival will follow the first farmers' market of the year in our very own Lamont Park.

The music is very Mount Pleasant-ish, if that makes sense. Almost everyone is DC based and DJ Wanako is Mount P based, so he won't have to travel far to spin a set or two.

And now, the envelope, please.... I mean line up. I don't know why I said envelope:

Long time DC mellow indie band Deleted Scenes, folksy Aaron Thompson, three pieces Frau Eva and Deutshmarks, Royal Forest (Austin TX), Radio CPR's DJ Wanako and Four Horsemen (their Karenina below, via byt).

The Fest begins at 2:00pm after the Farmers' Market and will end around 7pm. Not sure of the order of appearance, but you can't really go wrong here. If you're into FB rsvp, go bananas, but try to follow through, ok? See ya there.
