So beyond the festivals I mentioned yesterday, here's some other choices . . .
Bill Evans Soulgrass featuring Sam Bush at the Aladdin. High energy jazz/bluegrass fusion from the innovative Grammy-winning saxophonist and singer . . . 8 PM, $25
Freak Mt Ramblers at Imbibe . . . 9:30 PM, Free
A fine place to spend the evening (if not running around town for MusicFestNW) is the comfy confines of the Laurelthirst for a evening that begins with the Little Sue Band for happy hour (free from 6-8), and then the outstanding triple bill of Miss Michael Jodell, Mike Coykendall, and the James Low Band. Pace yourself and you'll be in for a long and rewarding evening of music . . . 9:30 PM, $5
Lisa & Her Kin and Wheatfield at Duff's Garage . . . 9:30 PM, $5 (?)
BTW . . . one more festival going on this weekend is up in Washington is the Sunbanks Rhythm & Blues Festival. It's a long drive up to the Grand Coulee Dam, but this is a pretty cool blues festival.
Think I'll be trying to hit the Muddy Boot fest on Saturday afternoon and take in the evening at the Laurelthirst . . . maybe see you there!
