It's about time we got around to the weekend - I don't know about all you guys, but I'm starting the ol' Thursday slide a little early this week, and am seriously ready for some sleep, and catching up on chores... Oh, and live music! Here's what I've got for you this time around, and there's quite a bit:

All Ages (but 21+ to drink... Duh)
- If you haven't heard about this yet, then you must live under one heck of a soundproof rock. Taking over Brick South for two whole days, this festival features beers from a TON of breweries both local and far away, as well as music from King Koyote, Bel Heir, Ceasetone, Jeremiah Freed, and MANY more.
